WAS HITLER THE LAST SECULAR DICTATOR THEY DIDN'T LOVE?:

Democrats Reach Out to Syria (JAY SOLOMON, 2/12/09, WSJ)

Two congressional leaders plan direct meetings later this month with Syrian President Bashar Assad, said officials briefed on their trips, in a further sign of efforts in Washington to re-engage diplomatically with hostile regimes.

The visits by Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts and Rep. Howard Berman of California, the Democratic chairmen of the Senate and House foreign affairs committees, come as President Barack Obama has sought to start a direct dialogue with Iran.


There's a high cost to be paid for W's failure to do Damascus right after Baghdad in '03.
