Senator Arlen Specter: A Useful Idiot

Israel is retaliating for Hamas’ constant barrage of missiles into the country. So what does Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) do? Meet with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and sit there while the lovable Assad calls for an end to Israel’s “massacre” of “unarmed Palestinian people”.

DAMASCUS (AFP) – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called on Tuesday for Israel’s “massacres” in the Gaza Strip to stop, as he met visiting US Senator Arlen Specter, the official SANA news agency reported.

Assad “underlined the necessity for halting the Israeli massacres which are being committed against the unarmed Palestinian people, lifting the unjust siege on them and opening all the crossings permanently,” the news agency said.

The talks between Assad and the Republican senator, a regular visitor to Damascus, “dealt with the situation in the Middle East, particularly in the occupied Palestinian territories,” it added.

Why would Specter travel to Damascus, home of the leader of Hamas, and give Assad a propaganda opportunity? I thoroughly doubt Specter sympathizes with Hamas and its allies, but he hasn’t proven to be the brightest crayon in the box. As Allahpundit points out, we’re talking about the same Senator who attempted to justify amnesty by saying a guy at his gym agrees with him. He’s a few pieces of cutlery short of a set.
