Arlen Specter joins the parade to Syria

U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (R) joined the list of American politicians that have made the pilgrimage to Damascus.

DAMASCUS,(SANA)-US Republican Senator Arlen Specter stressed on Tuesday that President Bashar al-Assad is interested in achieving peace, stability and prosperity in the region, calling US Administration to hold a dialogue with Syria as to realize these purposes.

In a press conference held before his departure at Damascus Airport after a two-day visit to Syria, the Senator called the US Administration "to conduct a dialogue with Syria to solve the problems in the region," emphasizing that nothing cannot be reached out without the dialogue with Syria.

He rejected US Administration's refusing stance to hold a dialogue with Syria, describing the current US policy towards Syria as" not successful."

Bryan at Hot Air asks:

Why do we have so many squishes in Washington eager to bow to the whims of Arab and Iranian dictators, while they do nothing but bash and smash the US and its allies in Israel, and often on the soil that the dictators themselves rule?
