Politics Aside Nancy, How About Coming Clean!

Pelosi Wants To Go After Those That Knew About Torture Techniques, But Be Careful About What You Wish For

Oh the indignation of it all. We used what interrogation techniques against terrorists that may have had information that could potentially save American and others lives and that apparently did?

If only Nancy Pelosi had known waterboarding might be used, she would have put her holier than thou foot down to try and make sure that it would not happen. Funny thing though, with all of her denials it appears that what we all think is true. She and others were well aware of what was being planned, and are now lying(?) in terms of denying that fact.

Pelosi Hammering It Home

Politics are politics, but could this potentially be the downfall of Pelosi, or will the memo's and minutes suspiciously disappear ala Sandy Berger, or will the media simply ignore the story. You make the call.

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she was never told during a congressional briefing in 2002 that waterboarding or other "enhanced" interrogation techniques were being used on terrorism suspects.

But in a story published in the Washington Post in December 2007, two officials were quoted saying that the California Democrat and three other lawmakers had received an hour-long secret briefing on the interrogation tactics, including waterboarding, and that they raised no objections at the time...

...Pelosi is among those lawmakers who want an independent commission established to probe the evolution of the policies -- but it's still unclear what she knew early on in the Bush administration.

Asked about the briefings on Thursday, Pelosi said: "We were not -- I repeat -- were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used."

But she also did not explicitly say that waterboarding was not part of the conversation. She indicated instead that any discussion they may have had was hypothetical.

"What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel ... opinions, that they could be used, but not that they would," she said..."(Fox News)

In time all of the true facts will come out, or will they?


  1. Eventually, yes, the truth will out.

    She doesn't realize (or doesn't care) that she is opening The Barack - and ALL members of both houses of Congress, for that matter - up to prosecution in the future for PERCEIVED or even MANUFACTURED misdeeds.

    What about "Obama's Gitmo" I keep hearing about at Bagram - where he is applying "Bush" (AKA "let's protect our country") policies?

    She knew what was going on, and she said nothing because the next target for mass destruction was LA, and that would not have boded well with her constituents come election time had she gone against use of these techniques and we saw a smoking crater on the West Coast to match the one on the East Coast.

  2. boring, nitpicking, watergate all

  3. So if she is out and out lying then that is not a big deal? You have very selective blame.

  4. politicians on both sides lie daily....that is one area that is truly bi-partisan

  5. you must be mellowing mike, normally you would go into a ten minute 400 word diatribe about how only dem/liberals...lie to there constituancy.....touche mike, your slowly moving left..

  6. Not exactly, but I do agree most politicians are full of crap.
