“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."
.....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.
