Pelosi Rejects Any House Vote On Iranian Revolutionary Guard


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday she has no plans to bring up a Senate resolution asking the Bush administration to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a foreign terrorist organization.

“This has never happened before that a Congress should determine one piece of someone’s military is (a threat),” Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week.” “If it's a problem to us and our troops in Iraq, they should deal with it in Iraq.”

The measure, sponsored by Sens. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) and John Kyl (R-Ariz.), passed the Senate last month. And Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and other critics have said the vote gives the Bush administration a rational for military action in Iran.
