Apollo 4 on column of fire

A troublesome preview of Nancy Pelosi’s attack on Iran

See http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2007/08/29/iran/index.html

I heard this speech yesterday and am disconcerted. I don’t have words to describe how badly Nancy Pelosi is failing, or how pathetic the ‘100 hours’ or whatever it was seems in retrospect.

9/11 and Katrina both happened when Bush insisted on taking vacation, and now, disturbingly, we have a national emergency and Nancy Pelosi insists on taking vacation—but it might be just as well, given the propensity of Congress to endorse and support a warlike stance.
