Shrugging off Bush policy, U.S. senator meets Syrian president


In a direct affront to the Bush administration, a Democratic United States senator spent an hour Wednesday with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus, asking him to do more to stabilize Iraq.

Senator Bill Nelson, a member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees met with Assad after the State Department said that it disapproved of his trip.

The U.S. has limited diplomatic ties with Syria because of its support of Hezbollah and Hamas, which the U.S. deems terrorist organizations, and U.S. President George W. Bush has expressed reluctance to seek help from Damascus on Iraq until the Syrians curb that support and reduce their influence in Lebanon.

More Thursday morning.

I hate to say it, but I honestly believe Bill Nelson is brain dead from lack of oxygen, from his trip to outerspace. How he was reelected I don't understand... Ohh, that's right.. It was Katherine Harris.. and the influx of snow birds, just prior to the elections, that have no clue who they are voting for in FL. Loyal Democrat, fellow senior citizen's. "Give us free medicine from Canada Bill, we are owed it!"

Just watch, my man Obama Hussien Boortzraca, pick him to be his VP running mate. I'm actually ashamed for Florida over this; and this man resides in Orlando..

Dear Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus, please do the honorable thing, and remove Mr. Nelson's head if he visit's Syria again as a representaitive of the American people. Keep it as "piece" jesture from the American people.

Hopefully, we can covince Jimmy Carter, and maybe even Jessie Jackson to visit, and present additional piece offering's.

Allah, Akbar..
