Speaker Pelosi & Murtha On "Goodbye Baghdad" Tour
Do you wonder if Prime Minister al-Maliki has any idea what is about to hit him?

He might as well have been talking to the wall.
Murtha and Pelosi are in Iraq and about to attack:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. John Murtha, both vocal war critics, were in the Iraqi capital Friday at the head of a delegation of House members on a fact-finding mission as the White House and Congress dueled over the expansion of U.S. forces in Iraq.
The Pelosi delegation visited the heavily fortified Green Zone, site of the American Embassy, and met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
“We come out of the meeting with a greater understanding of the others’ point of view,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said, in brief remarks after the meeting.
Pelosi has been a sharp critic of the Bush administration’s conduct of the war and has led a drive in Congress against sending 21,500 more troops as part of a new security crackdown in Baghdad.
Expect a BIG – “Bring Them Home Now” – speech any hour, now.
Murtha said this week that he did not have a particular timeline for withdrawal from Iraq but that the military could do it within 6 months.
