Voices of Iraq: Pelosi arrives in Baghdad

From Aswat Aliraq,
Baghdad, May 17, (VOI)- U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Baghdad on Saturday for talks with U.S. and Iraqi officials, a source from Iraqi PM’s office said.

“Pelosi is to meet Iraqi Prime minister Nouri al-Maliki,” the source told Aswat al-Iraq- Voices of Iraq- (VOI).

Pelosi’s visit comes only two days after the Democrats-dominated-U.S. House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution as to pulling out U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2009. Pelosi, the first woman speaker of the House, had visited Iraq on 26 January 2008.
Curious what she'll say about this.... she ought to ask Maliki for a little more info about Blackwater springing Alsammarae out of the IZ the Chicago way.

I'm sure Maliki would just love to talk about Blackwater with her. Another plank in Bush's leaky boat is the mercenary problem in Iraq.

Bill Baar said...

Maliki's accused Blackwater of aiding Aiham Alsammarae's escape from the IZ. Alsammarae is the fellow who put up his house as bail for Tony Rezko.

Alsammarae is the fellow in this photo with Auchi and Blagojevich.

No one seem particularly interested in wanting to get to the bottom of this story.

Dr Bermangolu said...

Blackwater has been murdering Iraqi citizens with total impunity for five years. The United States not only doesn't care, it has aided and abetted Blackwater, which is financed by the core of Bush's base.

NOW you are attempting to tie Obama to Rezko via Alsammarae with this breathless moral indignation of yours in order to get McBush elected president. If the press is willing to ignore a Niagara of blood for half a decade with the GOP financed bandits of Blackwater, they certainly aren't going to take a walk down fantasy lane with you.

Bill Baar said...

Obama was at that dinner with Auchi, Alsammarae, Rezko, and Blagojevich.

They made their connections. Not me...

How did Blackwater get to Mt Vernon Illinois?

What was Jill Morgenthaler doing scouting training sites and offering Savanna to Frawely... to train Iraqi's to us AK-47s? What Iraqi guy doesn't already know...

Dr Bermangolu said...

Who else was at that dinner? Or was it just the four of them?

And if we started nailing every American politician that has dinner with a slimebag lobbyist, how many would be left? Your whole neocon administration would have been gone years ago.

Bill Baar said...

Emil Jones was there too. Alsammarae on the Gov's left, and Auchi on the Right... you don't get those seats at a big dinner in Illinois Politics at the Four Seasons with out kicking in a lot of points. The guest list has become a bit hush-hush doc... Auchi's people scrubed their site with the pics.
