Hey Madam Speaker...How's that little sojourn over to Syria working out for ya?

Remember Speaker Pelosi's much berated ad hoc diplomacy with Syria where she said:
...Syria must also stop supporting terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, and must end any interference in Lebanon's internal affairs...
If this report is accurate (and according Michael J. Totten, he confirmed it with Michael Young, opinion page editor of Beirut's Daily Star) then it looks like the Syrians really took her diplomacy for what it was worth (HT: Instapundit):
Syrian troops on Thursday reportedly have penetratwed three kilometers into Lebanese territories, taking up positions in the mountains near Yanta in east Lebanon's Bekaa Valley.

The daily Al Mustaqbal, citing sources who confirmed the cross-border penetration, did not say when the procedure in the Fahs Hill overlooking Deir al-Ashaer in the Rashaya province took place.

The sources said Syrian troops, backed by bulldozers, were fortifying positions "in more than one area" along the Lebanese border, erecting earth mounds and digging "hundreds" of trenches and individual bunkers...
