CIA Proves Pelosi Lied

Nancy Pelosi has been caught in yet another lie. She has claimed that she was never told about "harsh interrogation" methods used on terrorist combatants. But she was told about it. The thought of a Democrat lying might shock two or three of you, but to many of us this is just more of the same. The Washington Post: Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used. So, Pelosi knew about the interrogation methods well over six years ago but said nothing until it served her politically to say something. In other words, Democrat Pelosi was enabling the Bush Administration, apparently having no problem with the methods that she was told about. Only when it seemed politically expedient did she begin to criticize the methods. This is reminiscent of other Democrat lies concerning the general subject of the war on terror. Democrat "leaders" who given full briefings before and after the invasion of Iraq publicly pretended that the knew nothing. Democrat leaders act like Sergeant Schultz in Hogan's Heroes, the bumbling, cowardly German prison guard who pretended to "know nothing" even when he did. Republicans have accused her of knowing for many years precisely the techniques CIA agents were using in interrogations, and only protesting the tactics when they became public and liberal antiwar activists protested. Full Story at The Washington Post... Nancy Pelosi has proven again and again that she is little more than an opportunity whore, an ideoligically vapid husk of a woman. For Nancy Pelosi, her own political career is more important than any true political beliefs. We can respect someone for their heartfelt politics, if they are sincere and not hypocritical. Nancy Pelosi is insincere, hypocritical, and should resign for the good of both the nation and her own party.
