    You should work on answering questions with substance.

    If there's so much out there to be read, how is it that Congress didn't know?

    If it was so blatant, why was Congress unwilling to do anything about it?

    Otherwise the left as personified by ADK here will play the amnesiatic "never noticed" game and she will not only lie away but use her lies to create show trials.

    How ridiculous to claim the Congress never knew. Its as blatantly absurd as Pelosi's lie.
    Pelosi was not allowed to reveal what she was told, so how do you believe she could have acted to stop it? This was one of the tricks of the bush administration..."informing" members of Congress of questionable actions under the cover of national security.

    If she was opposed she could have written an official protest, which is really the only legally binding action she could take, as words of opposition in those meetings are hearsay unless recorded. To date no letter or minutes of said meeting(s) have exonerated Pelosi or anyone else on the Left.

    She didn't voice opposition on the record, or write a letter of protest because the political calculation to do so back then equated suicide.

    Now that the Left is back to their old tricks, and Pelosi sought to rewrite history, she got caught in a massive lie.

    The Left should have known better; trying to criminalize politics is going to create a savage fight... and good. I hope they open this powder keg, it turns into a political slaughterhouse, with political blood and capital gushing down the steps of Capitol Hill.

    You knew when she became Speaker, she'd be laying some huge and rotten eggs. This is a pretty fine and smelly specimen, and the President is holding the weighty, smelly beast.

    I hope they have hearings and she must testify under oath.

    My guess is she will look like BBQ's Chicken after they're done with her... and the D's, not the R's, will have a whole lot of 'splain'in to do... but the press will do as good a job as possible with damage control; there will be a sea of Susan Roesgen's out there defending their interests and attacking the Congressional equivalents of Joe the Plumber.

    you really are amusing, talking about the "left up to their old tricks" after the BS we have seen from the Republicans for the past 8 years. If you go to the dictionary and look up "hypocrite" you will see this picture

    List for me what "we have seen from the Republicans for the past 8 years"?

    Iraq? Signed on twice by Democrats.
    Continually funded by Democrats.

    Let's see the Hypocrites list on that one.
    Oh Snap! Every damn Democrat that voted FOR the war except Lieberman cut-and-run.
    Hypocrites.
    Then they excommunicated Lieberman.

    The Military?
    Clinton said we could fight a 2-front war.
    Then YOU folks say the military is too small and not uparmored.
    Hypocrites wear a D again.

    Fannie and Freddie.
    McCain AND Bush wanted it overhauled.
    Dems said it was A-OK and used their power to intimidate witnesses.
    Whoops!

    Patriot Act?
    They sign on with smiles on their faces, and then?
    They cut, run and attack it.
    Who?
    THE DEMOCRATS.

    Please give me the list of what you think Bush did, and then we'll take a nice trip down memory lane.

    In the words of that three time Purple Heart traitor...

    Bring... it... oooon.

    How do you beat such stellar candidate like Kerry if you were doing so much ill?

    Zimmer; never confuse a hyper emotional, uber Liberal partisan, anti-Bush, anti-Conservative, quasi communist with the facts. It will only cause them to jump to the next hyper emotional false argument and then attempt to get you to wallow in an endless circle of stupidity where they continue to dance around the facts and then end up at the original false pretence/argument.

    This is one of the funniest, and most outrageous, posts I've ever read on DP.

    And that's saying a lot.
