While the Dems and the lefties crow over Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's foreign policy coup, more rational people worry about the precedent set by her unsanctioned state visits. The door is apparently now open for any functionary of the US government to unilaterally engage with representatives of foreign governments.
Pelosi's defense is that she's "enforcing" recommendations put forth by the Iraq Studies Group. That's complete and utter bullshit. The Iraq Studies Group report isn't a piece of legislation, and wasn't even produced by a government body. How the hell does one "enforce" recommendations, anyway?
