She knew from the beginning. According to a CIA document compiled by the Director of National Intelligence summarizing briefings to Congress on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorist detainees, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) knew from the very beginning that those techniques -- including waterboarding -- were being used on September 2, 2002.
According to the memo the very first briefing listed is 9/4/02 with then Rep. Porter Goss & Pelosi. The summary of the briefing says:
Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed.
This directly contradicts Pelosis story, that we were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used.
As HUMAN EVENTS reported earlier, Pelosi - by objecting to the use of the enhanced interrogation techniques - could have stopped them but didn't.
Pelosi's misstatements were apparently intended to divert attention from her and other Democrats in Congress who knew of all the enhanced interrogation methods -- in detail -- apparently as soon as they were being used.
Slapdown on stretchy-P
EIT can’t be much worse than all the plastic surgery and Botox treatments.
This witch will claim it’s a Republican conspiracy and that documents have been altered. She’ll find a way to pin it on Bush, guaranteed.
What a lying piece of plastic
We should call for her resignation.
Yes, Republicans should call for her resignation...she is a liar and slanderer.
She lied about GWB daily for years.
We knew she lied and there it is in black and white. She’ll still lie!
When she heard about waterboarding, she thought it was surfing. She’s from California. It was just an innocent misunderstanding.
She said they weren't told that the techniques WOULD be used.
Based on this document, it appears she was told they HAD been used.
That's all the wiggle room she needs.
” payback to the Dems for driving that bus over the boys at Langley.”
I think you’ve nailed it.
Yep and I think we can count on a steady drip drip drip of info going into the 2010 election that will make the rats look just like a bunch of rats!
Like Bill Clinton, talking about Lewinsky, saying “There IS no sex.” Technically, unless Monica was under the desk at exactly the moment Clinton gave his answer, then he was telling the truth. In his mind, anyway.
No offense, eels.
Saw it on Fox this afternoon. Still waiting for Drudge to post it. Should I hold my breath?
“Still waiting for Drudge to post it?”
I’ve been beating Drudge lately...in fact I think he’s been watching my threads. LOL
Please ask the moderator to put this in the breaking news section where it belongs. Thank you.
I think we should put them in stocks - GM, right after they do their 610 million to 62 billion split.
