That would be the WSJ editorial board. In today's feature they wonder, why at this particular moment the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, would consider a Congressional resolution condemning Turkey for the Armenian genocide of 1915. Madame Speaker is determined to bring the bill to a vote in spite of opposition by eight former U.S. Secretaries of State, including Madeleine Albright, and in spite of the recall by Turkey of its ambassador at the prospect of a vote on it.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, famous for donning a head scarf earlier this year to commune for peace with the Syrians, has now concluded that this is the perfect moment to pass a Congressional resolution condemning Turkey for the Armenian genocide of 1915. Problem is, Turkey in 2007 has it within its power to damage the growing success of the U.S. effort in Iraq. We would like to assume this is not Speaker Pelosi's goal.
To be clear: We write that we would like to assume, rather than that we do assume, because we are no longer able to discern whether the Speaker's foreign-policy intrusions are merely misguided or are consciously intended to cause a U.S. policy failure in Iraq.
May I just say... DUH!
