    CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'

    By Paul Kane
    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.

    In a 10-page memo outlining an almost seven-year history of classified briefings, intelligence officials said that Pelosi and then-Rep. Porter Goss (R-Fla.) were the first two members of Congress ever briefed on the interrogation tactics. Then the ranking member and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, respectively, Pelosi and Goss were briefed Sept. 4, 2002, one week before the first anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    The memo, issued by the Director of National Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency to Capitol Hill, notes the Pelosi-Goss briefing covered "EITs including the use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah." EIT is an acronym for enhanced interrogation technique. Zubaydah was one of the earliest valuable al-Qaeda members captured and the first to have the controversial tactic known as water boarding used against him.

    What did she know?

    Everything.

    When did she know it?

    Before it started.

    What's her verdict? Well, if you're an Obama lovin, Democrat? Not guilty.

    Because, Democrats like Nancy P, well they cannot be responsible for TORTURE!

    We knew she was lying all a long. She new that EIT's were being used on Abu Zubaydah. She new about it alsmost 7 years ago. This should not surprise anyone. She is a hypocrite and a lier.

    Awesome. She knew. Off to jail with her and all those who knew. Now does that mean we get to send the entire Bush administration in too?

    Here, let me end the lib silence briefly, though you will be some what disappointed with what I say.

    If this turns out to be accurate, and I have no reason to believe it won't, Pelosi should at the very least step down as Speaker of the House. We as democrats have to send the message that we are better than this. She embarrasses not just herself, but democrats as a whole.

    Now, the odds of that happening are slim, but that is what I think should happen. I don't think there are any ethics rules or laws that can be used to punish her on this sadly. I have no use for corrupt or dishonest politicians of either party.

    I am not defending Pelosi but she lied, so what? Show me a politician who hasn't.

    She wasn't the only Dem to know... you don't get teh damage this is going to do to the DNC do you?

    These calls to disbar the Lawyers advising the Bush administration, the calls for investigations... if they go after Bush, but not Pelosi and the others (which they won't) it's gonna be so sweet.

    I don't care. Send her to jail if it means sending the Bush administration to jail.

    These calls to disbar the Lawyers advising the Bush administration, the calls for investigations... if they go after Bush, but not Pelosi and the others (which they won't) it's gonna be so sweet.
    Great. Let's go after both. Bush AND Pelosi. I don't care at the end of the day. Then we can go after every Republican & Democrat who knew about this. Sanctorum, Rummy, etc etc. What's wrong? Too bipartisan for you? I'm all for going after anybody who knew about this waterboarding thing from the get go and did nothing relevant to stop it.

    No, I'm happy you say this, I think you're WRONG, seeing as I believe that the EIT was proper and useful...

    But we both know Pelosi won't be held to the fire for this.

    Should we also send to prison those members of the US military which designed and carried out SERE (Survive, Evade, Resist, Escape) training. This involves waterboardong US military personal during interrogation survival training?
