Kucinich Huddles with Assad of Syria

US Presidential candidate, Democrat Dennis Kucinich traveled to Syria yesterday to sing the praises of the dictator: "What most people are not aware of is that Syria has taken in more than 1.5 million Iraqi refugees," Kucinich said. "The Syrian government has actually shown a lot of compassion in keeping its doors open, and being a host for so many refugees." There was no mention of Syria's role in supporting insurgent attacks on US troops.

At the same time, Kucinich declined to visit Iraq: I don't want to bless the American occupation with my presence there" he said in an interview in Lebanon, after visiting Syria. "I will not do it."
