Madam Speaker - News from the front lines!!!

Today’s not good for me, I’m booked all the way till 6 comparing notes with the enemy, we need to get our stories straight you see, 08 and all that. But I have an opening tomorrow between 2 and 4 after yoga; tell them to come back then ok.
"One thing that he reminded us was, this is a test of wills and he admonished us, reminded us that what we say to the world, to our adversaries and our allies, is listened to by the other side," said Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif. Hunter said Petraeus "didn't try to sugarcoat the issues and the problems" that American forces face in Iraq, but noted that comments like that by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who last week said the war is lost, provide incentive for U.S. adversaries.

"It must come as a shock to Al Qaeda leaders to have an aide come into their safe house and tell them that Senator Reid has declared that, in fact, they are winning and the war is lost," Hunter said. "I think it's highly irresponsible for the leader of the U.S. Senate to have said that and, just speaking for myself as the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, I think that the leader of the Senate should step down from that position."

Petraeus briefed more than 200 members just hours before the House vote on the bill that requires combat troop withdrawals to begin this year and seeks removal of virtually all combat forces by April of next year. He then briefed Senate members, who also packed the meeting room.

All lawmakers were invited to the general's briefing, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not attend nor did Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., chairman of the committee responsible for defense appropriations. "While Speaker Pelosi was able to jet-set around the globe to meet with Syrian leaders, she finds it inconvenient to meet with the U.S. commander in Iraq during his brief visit to Washington," Wilson said.
Well Duncan Hunter is wrong on one thing; it’s no shock to Al Qaeda that the Democrats are throwing in the towel already. By now they should know that if a Democrat is publicly schmoozing with their suppliers in Syria and demanding a screwing-over of the troops hunting them, they have an ally amongst the great Satan.

I suppose stupid leftists will keep carping that the Democrats are not on the terrorist’s side up until some Democrats actually take up arms and head over to the other side, Al Qaeda may be a lot of things, but they ain’t stupid, they’ll take whatever they can get.
