Looks like Nancy Pelosi overstepped her bounds as she traveled to Damascus, Syria to play diplomatic games. Unfortunately for her, and she should know better, the United States is to present a unified diplomatic front to the nations of the world, and by freelancing Pelosi presented a different view from current State Department and international policy. The UN and State Department have determined that Syria is a brood of vipers harboring terrorists.
There is a law in place to deal with issues like rogue diplomats. It is called the Logan Act. The Logan Act makes it a felony for any American, "without authority of the United States," to communicate with a foreign government in an effort to influence that government's behavior on any "disputes or controversies with the United States" and provides for a prison sentence of up to three years.
Even though Nancy Pelosi wanted to follow the guidelines of the ISG report that suggests more communication with Syria, she is foolish and idealistic to think her input would benefit the current situation in the Middle East. Not only is she a very high ranking official going to visit our enemies (third in line to the presidency) without the current administration's blessing, she is presenting a view different from what our State Department presents, AND she botched a supposed message from Israel.
When she comes home, she should be censured severely at the very least, and should possibly lose her position as Speaker of the House if the Democrats have the cojones to deal with her behavior. Perhaps, instead of the witch hunt against Scooter Libby, prosecutors should face a real lawbreaker like Pelosi!
HERE is another article about the Logan Act and whether or not Nancy Pelosi should be arrested for her actions.
Is it me, or is there a Pelosi blackout in the Media today? Hmmmm.
We wonder if she's given secrets to the enemy, and personally would not put it past her.
