Did Speaker Nancy Pelosi play a role in the release of the British soldiers?

News this morning from RTT cites the following, " Syria played a key role in resolving the standoff over the 15 British sailors and marines held by Iran, two government officials said Wednesday.
"Syrian efforts and the Iranian willingness culminated with the release of the British sailors," said Information Minister Mohsen Bilal.

He said Syria had been asked "to help positively in the issue of British" crew members since their March 23 seizure by Iran in the Persian Gulf.

He did not elaborate."

We will never really know if the trip by Speaker Pelosi to Syria had any connection to the release but the coincidence of the trip and the releease is striking. It was a chance for both Syria and Iran to take a whack at President Bush and they took it.
