CIA's Panetta Counters Pelosi

As mentioned yesterday, Pelosi the Psychopath can't lie very well. She's busy lying about her previous knowledge of waterboarding, and she continues to lie badly. Today, this from the Washington Post: CIA Director Leon Panetta today rejected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's charge that the agency misled her in 2002 about its use of waterboarding and other coercive interrogation methods on suspected terrorists. Panetta, who took office as President Obama's CIA chief in February, reasserted the agency's claim that it told congressional leaders about the use of such methods during a closed-door briefing in September 2002. Pelosi (D-Calif.) has acknowledged attending the briefing but says she was told only that the CIA was considering the use of waterboarding, or simulated drowning. Full Story at Washington Post... KARL ROVE weighed in on this hot topic, with a May 15 column in the Wall Street Journal: If Mrs. Pelosi considers the enhanced interrogation techniques to be torture, didn't she have a responsibility to complain at the time, introduce legislation to end the practices, or attempt to deny funding for the CIA's use of them? If she knew what was going on and did nothing, does that make her an accessory to a crime of torture, as many Democrats are calling enhanced interrogation? Full Column at Wall Street Journal...
