Al-Maliki in Syria while Senator Levin Fumes

Senator Carl Levin, supposedly a good guy but in reality just another member of the War Pack, is fuming that Iraq's Prime Minister al-Maliki is in Damascus, just 10 days after an official visit to Tehran. Mr. Levin, who wants to "fire" PM al-Maliki, seems to be convinced that if only the US could find the right Shia-friendly Arab Sunni, it could coerce the Iraqis into doing its bidding.

As the senator fumes, tag-teaming of highly visible photo ops of official visits by al-Maliki and Iranian President Ahmadinejad is obviously a big thumb in the eye to Washington. Indeed, Ahmadinejad may visit Iraq in September.

Should Bush not second the call for Al-Maliki's ouster by parliamentary means?
