Nancy Pelosi, the third most powerful US politician is in Damascus.
“We were very pleased with the reassurances we received from
the (Syrian) president that he was ready to resume the peace
process. He was ready to engage in negotiations (for) peace with
Israel,” she said.
But she’s already been rebuked by Israel for telling Syria Israel was ready for talks.
“(Our) meeting with the (Syrian) president enabled us to communicate a message from prime minister Olmert that Israel was ready to engage in peace talks as well,” she said.
The Israel government is angry that she said that whole sentence without mentioning the compulsory words “terror” and “support”. These words are issued on cards to every US politician who has to speak to the media.
