It's a fine distinction, but as things stand now, it looks like Pelosi was honest this time. If you can prove otherwise, I will happily look at your proof, since I really don't care for Pelosi, it might even be fun.
    Nancy Pelosi:

    In that or any other briefing . . . we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used," Pelosi said at a news conference in April. "What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel . . . opinions that they could be used, but not that they would."

    Facts:

    .....it is no longer possible to doubt that Pelosi knew as of September 4, 2002 that the CIA included water-boarding among its tools for interrogating high-value terrorists like al Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah. She knew this because, according to then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Porter Goss, R-FL, he and Pelosi received a detailed classified briefing from the agency.

    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.


    Capitol Briefing - CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'

    Case closed, the efforts by Democrats to demagogue the issue of IET's for purely partisan political purposes is clear, it is despicable and it is patently offensive.

    This selective outrage does not serve the people of the United States and continues to put our citizens at risk when our enemies see this kind of divisive tactic within our own government.

    You can now go on pretending she didn't hear or see what she was obviously told and shown. I cannot willingly suspend my disbelief to that extent.

    The key phrase is "were used". Pelosi has stated that she was told EITs could be used, not that they where used. The CIA has not contradicted this claim. Since neither you or I was there, we do not know for sure, but until the CIA can document that Pelosi was actually told that they had been used, Pelosi's words stand up.

    By the way, the link I provided in this thread is more recent than yours, you might want to try and keep up with what is happening.

    She was told by her senior staffer the particulars of what occured and is now trying to use Harman as a shield.


    She intentionally lied in order to criminalize and defame political opponents.
    She is unfit to be Speaker and should be removed form office as well.

    You might want to be less condescending while supporting a lying slut. Like she never checked up after 2002 on what was going on; she just found out and is totally shocked. A lying bitch is what she is.

    I don't care for Pelosi, at all. I also refuse to rush to judgment on issues. If it turns out that we can prove she lied, I will happily condemn her. Right now the facts are somewhat in question yet, so I am holding off.

    I can tell you have a hard time being objective about this. I am not sure if it is just your rabid partisanship, or that you hate women in power, but you are really getting carried away worked up over this.

    House Majority Leader: Congressional Hearings Should Explore Pelosi's Interrogation Briefing
    Democrats will hold a series of hearings on Justice Department memos released last month that justified rough tactics against detainees, including waterboarding -- simulated drowning -- and sleep deprivation.


    The House majority leader reluctantly agreed Tuesday that congressional hearings should investigate Speaker Nancy Pelosi's assertion that she wasn't informed, more than six years ago, that harsh interrogation methods were used on an Al-Qaeda leader

    That his intent and the Democrats intent will be to excuse her no matter what being obvious is not the highlight.

    Its how much the Democrat have lost control of this.
    They have lost control so badly that they now have to set up an excuse round for their show hearings.

    Want to pay attention to what is being posted, said, and in the news from now on instead of asking me for rehashing the "proof" your ignoring?

    First link is based from an unnamed source, not proof, though highly damning. Second link is of an aide being briefed, not Pelosi. Your post above this most recent one shows that an investigation into her is going to happen, which is a good thing. I am a big fan of knowing the truth.

    1. The article quotes Pelosi using Harman as a shield.
    2. Her senior aide was briefed to brief her. That is their job.

    Then you would want anyone but the Democrats who initiated this mess to be the ones "investigating" their own speaker.

    You expect 'truth' to come out of what is a "reluctantly " forced issue on House Democrats during their planned show hearings based on the selective memo's released by Obama?
    ok....
