The Speaker must not be liking her press coverage:
During a brief Mother’s Day visit to Iraq on Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi reaffirmed her commitment to ensure that the U.S. military meets its June 30 deadline for withdrawing American troops from major cities in the country, according to a release from her office.
The speaker, accompanied by Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.), met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and Ayad al-Samarai, the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, to discuss what the release called the need for rooting out “wide-spread corruption that is impeding reconstruction and the delivery of services to the Iraqi people,” gathering better intelligence in anticipation of the withdrawal and resolving a border conflict with the Kurds.
Right now I’d settle for better intelligence (and less corruption) in Washington.
But hey, maybe you go for the quick wins.
