Pelosi - Providing Comfort to the Enemy?

Chief Deputy Republican Whip Eric Cantor is taking Speaker Pelosi to task for her recent trip to Syria, and he wants pressure applied to the Speaker by members of her own Party to justify the visit.

Powerline (via our brethren from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, The Conservative Edge) has a nice round-up of reactions to Pelosi's taxpayer-funded junket to our enemies in Syria. Needless to say, not many people are pleased with Pelosi's latest aerial mishap.

I really don't care for a special investigation of the Speaker on this one. That seems more of a waste of taxpayer dollars than debating honoring Justin Timberlake. I would settle for a ban on all taxpayer-funded travel by Members of Congress to foreign countries. They aren't in charge of foreign policy, anyhow, so why do Members (and former Members - Carol Mosely-Braun, Harold Ford, Jr. jump out in this context) feel the need to jet all over the world at our expense?
