So who were
those other members of Congress who joined with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher in presenting his 'personal peace plan' to then-Taliban Foreign Minister Muttawakil at a meeting in Qatar in April 2001?
(For the details of this rapidly unfolding story, see last evening's post.)
We can't say yet which ones went in on the negotiations with Muttawakil. But we can narrow it down to seven possible candidates -- the other seven congressman beside Rohrabacher who went to last year's Free Markets and Democracy Conference, where the Muttawakil-Rohrabacher meeting took place.
Wyeth Ruthven found the list of the eight member delegation on the website of the U.S. - Qatar Business Council. The eight are ...
Rep. Bob Barr (R-GA)
Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. (D-IL)
Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA)
Rep. Nick Rahall II (D-WV)
Rep. Ciro D. Rodriguez (D-TX)
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)
Rep. John E. Sununu (R-NH)
Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO)
Did Bob Barr -- who's now pitted against fellow Republican John Linder -- spend some quality time with the Taliban? How about John Sununu? Who's now running for Senate in New Hampshire. Somebody should ask.
