First she said she didn't know about EIT (Enhanced Interrigation Techniques) Then when memo's showed her being briefed it was,..Well they were only talking about maybe using those techniques. Today, she didn't say anything because she wanted to go through "proper channels".

Here's a story that touches on some of it from a ilberal source.

So Pelosi it looks like Pelosi knew. Maybe she forgot she knew but she knew. I agree that Pelosi should be removed from a leadership role.

More shame than the people that actually did the torture? That does not make any sense whatsoever.

Nancy Pelosi made every attempt to cause any bit of trouble she could for the Bush administration. When she found out that she could possibly be implicated as well - she lied to save her own skin. Either that, she has a severe case of Alzheimers and should not be in office anymore. Heck, she should never have been in office in the first place. She's nothing but a troublemaker. She's a female Tom Dashel. She conducts herself as if she is entitled to special privledges. She doesn't care about American citizens. She cares about herself and her cronies. She has this look of arrogance on her face you'd like to slap it off. I would accept ANY other democrat except her.
God Damn Good Post!!!! I could not say it any better than you have. Notice how this waterboarding/torture issue has died down since the CIA released their documents on Pelosi's and other Democrats briefings regarding what the CIA/Military was doing to get information from high value targets.

You should also be aware Nancy berated the Air Force for not having a Military Jet on standby for her and her staff for the upcoming Memorial Day Holiday as that is the queens perks as the Speaker of the House. Nancy IS arrogant and a hypocrite! gO vIKINGS!

The country is at war. The Congress is protected. The Congress is protected from the people that elected them also.

It wasn't torture, it was only waterboarding. Not only did Pelosi know about the waterboarding, but she approved of it. In her attempt to make Bush look bad, she has since denied any knowledge of such tactics. Now she's been caught in a lie. I applaud Bush and Cheney for using these tactics to save American lives. Terrorists around the world are applauding Obama's decision to end waterboarding.

Little do the terrorists know that Obama has approved harsher punishment, being force fed coffee and made to watch old Pelosi tapes from C-Span 23 hours a day.

Nancy Pelosi vs. the CIA. They're both so untrustworthy, I really can't say who is lying.

What about the people that died while undergoing Enhanced Interrogation Techniques? If they died was that torture?
