Jesse Jackson looking for more face time; this time in Europe

As if this would surprise anyone, Jesse Jackson has now called for the withdrawl of troops from Iraq.

The Gypsy appeared this weekend at a conference in Greece, where he made a number of statements critical of the Bush Administration's handling of the Iraq War.

During the opening session of a conference on religions and cultures in Greece, Jackson said Bush must “end the occupation of Iraq and return sovereignty to the Iraqis as quickly as possible in cooperation with the United Nations and Europe.”

“The US bias toward Israel and its support for (Ariel) Sharon’s aggressive policies have obstructed peace and triggered violence and hate in the region,” he said.

Of course when the cameras went off in Greece, he hotfooted it back to this country, just in time to make it to the Million Mom March in Washington today.

Leave it to Jesse to grab an international spotlight when he can't get a domestic one.
