    Jay Rockefeller in 2002 went to Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria and told them that Bush was going to war.

    Pelosi went to Syria in 2007. '...Pelosi was accompanied by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Tom Lantos (D-CA), Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY), Nick J. Rahall II (D-WV), and Keith Ellison (D-MN).

    When Democrats go overseas and meet with the enemies of the USA, it is considered "patriotic." When the GOP writes a letter it is considered "treason," Old Regular. The Democrats have invited no one to the table in these negotiations--it is just between Obama and Iran--with nuclear war at stake. No wonder Obama can't get a good deal--Iran knows that he has no friends at the table--is that correct, Old Regular?

    Along with John McCain, in September 2012 Lindsey Graham met with LIFG militant Abdelhakim Belhadj, the man now leading ISIS in LIbya. Belhadj fought alongside jihadists who killed U.S. troops in Iraq.

    http://www.infowars.com/lindsey-graham-meets-with-terrorists-threatens-to-overthrow-u-s-government/

    Washington’s Al Qaeda Ally Now Leading ISIS in Libya

    According to recent reports, Abdelhakim Belhadj has now firmly ensconced himself as the organizational commander of the ISIS presence inside Libya. The information comes from an unnamed US intelligence official who has confirmed that Belhadj is supporting and coordinating the efforts of the ISIS training centers in eastern Libya around the city of Derna, an area long known as a hotbed of jihadi militancy.

    While it may not seem to be a major story – Al Qaeda terrorist turns ISIS commander – the reality is that since 2011 the US and its NATO allies have held up Belhadj as a “freedom fighter.” They portrayed him as a man who courageously led his fellow freedom-lovers against the “tyrannical despot” Gaddafi whose security forces at one time captured and imprisoned many members of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), including Belhadj.

    Belhadj served the US cause in Libya so well that he can be seen receiving accolades from Sen. John McCain who referred to Belhadj and his followers as heroes. He was initially rewarded after the fall of Gaddafi with the post of military commander of Tripoli, though he was forced to give way to a more politically palatable “transitional government” which has since evaporated in that chaotic, war-ravaged country.

    Is it wrong for republicans to meet with our enemies too or does the hypocrite exemption come into play once again here?

    That pretty much answers my question doesn't it?

    The "hypocrite exemption" it is then.

    More importantly, what is a hypocrite?

    : a person who claims or pretends to have certain beliefs about what is right but who behaves in a way that disagrees with those beliefs

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/hypocrite

    In sports and politics a hypocrite is one who condemns the other team for doing the same thing their own team is guilty of doing. If you're still confused about this or cannot grasp the concept maybe it's time to consult with your monkey.

    Consistency is a bad thing now? Lack of consistency defines a hypocrite. Look that up in the dictionary and you'll see "synonyms: OldRegular".

    You are very consistent also. You make claims you cannot prove nor even support with evidence then send in a monkey to make fun of the one questioning that lack of evidence.

    It is some very childish behavior on your part but I do understand that's it's the only option you have open as you prefer to base your beliefs on Washington's (neocon) lies and fear based fabrications instead of cold hard evidence.

    Even though your monkey does his level best to try to distract the reader from noticing you cannot provide evidence to support your claims I believe in the end your policy of using such juvenile tactics to cover your lack of evidence will ultimately fail. :smilewinkgrin:

    Hmm. So not only does OR have to resort to using childish tactics to cover the glaring lack of evidence behind his claims he has to steal images from others to do it!

    The sad thing is this is what passes for "credibility" on this board today.
