    Pelosi briefed on waterboarding in '02 [UPDATED]

    What did She know and when did she and other Democrats know it?

    In a few hours Pelosi gets caught in a lie... or she simply showing signs of declining mental health.

    This will get really juicy if they begin a witch hunt on Bush Advisers... Pelosi should be the first to be grilled under oath.

    Glenn Thrush's Blog: Pelosi briefed on waterboarding in '02 [UPDATED] - POLITICO.com
    Nancy Pelosi denies knowing U.S. officials used waterboarding but GOP operatives are pointing to a 2007 Washington Post story which describes an hour-long 2002 briefing in which Pelosi was told about enhanced interrogation techniques in graphic detail.
    Which contradicts her earlier statement (lie).

    Pelosi: I didn't know about waterboarding

    Pelosi says she was briefed by Bush administration officials on the legal justification for using waterboarding but that they never followed through on promises to inform her when they actually began using "enhanced" interrogation techniques
    There is an explanation for her lack of memory; Plastic Surgery Dementia

    Re: Pelosi briefed on waterboarding in '02 [UPDATED]

    Obama, etc have lost control of the issue and she wants to remove blame on herself by any means necessary. So the whole " I didn't know who I was. Where I was. What was occurring?"..aka "I never noticed"

    I find it funny that she is trying to play the "never noticed" card of the Obama deck. Its simply absurd that while heading the House Committee on Intelligence that she was not briefed nor took part in her job.

    She is lying and badly.


    2010 is not looking to be a good Democrat year.

    This is national security... and she pleads "No Brain"... Think of what it will be like with Socialized Medicine?

    The worst of it is these people will be dead or on their way... long out of office when "it" hits the fan; just as Ted Kennedy made abysmal predictions in the mid 60's with illegal immigration... LONG FORGOTTEN... so will it be with Social Med.

    As for 2010... If Obama can get elected... anything is possible during the midterms.

    All this is just too damn bizarro to make sane, rational predictions.

    There were many other Democrats who also knew of these methods being used. As the TRUTH gets out, they will be exposed as the liars and hypocrites many with a brain already know.

    The Liberals and Democrats are painting themselves into a corner they cannot extract themselves from. It will only get better when and if, during another serious National emergency, they decide that water boarding makes perfect sense.

    It's kind of like the blatant lies and hypocrisy of Liberals when they railed about Bush's deficits, which when Republicans were in power had dropped to less than $200 billion, but now think that $1.8 trillion is pocket change!

    But wait, I think Obama may have found a WHOLE $100 million savings! Only one trillion and 799 billion to go.

    Let's see if ADK comes in here demanding Pelosi be tried jsut as she demands the Bush Admin lawyers be prosecuted.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I would advise you to NOT hold your breath waiting for his response.

    But of course, they will claim that Bush made them do it.

    Indeed, it is already happening.

    • Pakistan on the verge of collapse
    • An emboldened Taliban
    • An emboldened terrorist movement targeting India
    • And just today, twin suicide bombings in Iraq


    Having declared the weapons of a war against terrorists to be off limits, Dear Leader's administration has left itself defenseless against terrorists. What fear has a terrorist of a nation that will only incarcerate him, that will feed him, clothe him, honor his religious needs, as the just due for slaying thousands of that nation's people?

    If terrorists were to meet the nations of the world on conventional battlefields, if they were to press their various causes with conventional arms, conventional tactics, and conventional forces, there would be sound argument for keeping response restrained to the conventions of war.

    Terrorists reject all convention of war. They despise all convention of war. They condemn convention of war as weakness and impurity of spirit.

    By applying the conventions of war to the most unconventional of wars, Dear Leader and his liberal advisors remove themselves from the unconventional battlefield. They are thus missing in action in this unconventional war, and failing miserably in their duty to defend the nation.

    And that stated; I will never support another effort that places our troops into harms way because this country has shown immense disrespect for their sacrifice and efforts and doesn't deserve such support; that is until this country extracts its collective head from their collective asses and learns how to support an effort once the decisions are made regardless of their political perspectives and possible partisan political gain.

    You couldn't waterboard a statement like that out of him.

    Another bit of Libs Behaving Badly was Bush's "Read My Lips" change of heart to please... Libs.

    After the tax hike was signed, the Libs stood around Bush 41 like the cat that ate the canary.

    In the next election the photo and bipartisanship was forgotten and out came the long knives about his breaking his "No new taxes" pledge.

    Clinton wins and... raises taxes.

    These people are nasty, lying, devious dolts.
