Pelosi/Democrats ARE Bad for Security
Proving, once again, that Democrats just don't understand our security, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (Dem. Cal.), has chosen a guy that has no clue about what is going on to be the chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence over someone who at least is familiar with the subject.
House intelligence chair calls al Qaeda Shi'ite
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Is al Qaeda a Sunni organization, or Shi'ite?
The question proved nettlesome for Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas, incoming Democratic chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
"Predominantly -- probably Shi'ite," he said in a recent interview with Congressional Quarterly, a periodical that covers political and legislative issues in Congress.
Unfortunately for Reyes, the al Qaeda network led by Osama bin Laden is comprehensively Sunni and subscribes to a form of Sunni Islam known for not tolerating theological deviation.
This fool hasn't the first idea of what is going on in the war on terror in general or Iraq specifically and HE is tapped to be the chair of the committee on intelligence? Where is he going to keep HIS intelligence, in a box? Because it SURE as heck ain't in his head!
We can also see that Pelosi will lead by indulging her petty hard feelings and feuds as opposed to striving for the best. That she will slight qualified people of her own party to spite them because she is in a snit over something.
A former border patrol agent and a congressional opponent of the Iraq war, the Texas congressman was chosen for the chief intelligence job by House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi.
She rejected the panel's top-ranking Democrat, Rep. Jane Harman of California, who has had strained relations Pelosi. Next in line in terms of seniority was Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida, a former federal judge ousted from that post amid allegations of corruption.
What is the common refrain among leftists; that women are LESS prone to fighting and mean-spiritedness because of their softer, nurturing sides? Pelosi sure is doing a great job of disproving that leftist axiom.
One axiom she is NOT disproving is that Democrats are dangerous when it comes to national security. And picking a guy who doesn't know the first thing about current events is proof enough.
