Once upon a time, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard traveled to Syria and met with the strongman President Bashar Assad. She considered her willingness to engage all sides of the country’s bloody civil war to be an important step toward peace. For this bold action, she was widely pilloried at the time and considered by some an authoritarian apologist or outright traitor. The claim was repeated again recently by the ever-so-mainstream California Sen. Kamala Harris, a fellow Democratic presidential hopeful. The attacks on Gabbard’s Syria record have been quite regular among Washington insiders, who considered the congresswoman foolish. But was she? More than two years later, given events in Syria, one must conclude that she certainly was not. Indeed, Gabbard was right all along.

This is exactly why the warlords are pushing so hard to silence her. She's intelligent where B.S. is questioned making it difficult for them to push her into something that isn't real. She looks for facts, not horse manure before acting.

She is what our nation has lacked for decades a true leader for the people!

Thanks Dennis for this post. Western media has been biased towards Syria, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Yemen, etc.

Dennis Kaiser has been a good advocate for peace.

Here is Dennis Kucinich talking about his trip with Tulsi click here

Even more relevant, imvso, is listening to "the man" himself. Particularly while speaking to a moron journalist. (Is there another kind from the MSM?) click here
