(Studio: John Roberts) The reaction of President Bush to members of Congress visiting Syria to meet with Syrian President Bashir al-Assad reported. [BUSH - offers perspective on Syria; call sending delegations counterproductive.]

(Studio: John Roberts) Live discussion held with Heritage Foundation Brian Darling and Center for American progress Faiz Shakir about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's trip to Syria. [From Washington, DARLING - criticizes the visit because Syria is a terrorist state and it is inappropriate for Pelosi to represent the US; says Pelosi is tying the president's hands in fighting the war.] [SHAKIR - backs talking to the Syrian regime; notes the administration has negotiated with terrorist regimes from Libya and North Korea; states this is not undermining foreign policy, but offers an alternative agenda to dealing with the regional problems, including Iraq.] [PELOSI - says we have great hope.]

Roberts, John
