    On this subject overall though...how about we just blanket pardon/give immunity to every one involved, and then investigate and find out what happened without any stigma involved? Follow up with a new set of clearer rules about what we are allowed and not allowed to do to prisoners, and then move on and put this whole thing behind us.
    I have no desire to see any politicians prosecuted for supporting waterboarding. I completely support waterboarding when done for the right reasons (as I believe it was done). However, I would like to see public rebuke of partisan hacks like Pelosi who have lied their asses off while trying to put others in jail who have no more responsibility for such actions than she does. She is a lying, hypocritical jackass, who, if she was a Republican, would have her mug posted on every major TV network with a caption letting us know what an evil bitch she is. However, she is a Democrat, therefore, she barely makes the news!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    Since you are so outraged by Pelosi's "deception", you must REALLY be pissed by the actual people who orchestrated the torture. I know you can't wait for the hearings...neither can I.

    I will take this as meaning; "no TD, you know I cannot stand by my false assertions and hyper partisan rhetoric."

    Carry on.

    Pelosi's New Defense On Torture Claims




    1. Not briefed
    2. Briefed on the legality only
    3. Never Briefed "personally"
    4. Briefed and raised no objections.


    Which is it?

    Nancy Pelosi exposed as a war criminal! 5-11-09 - Pelosi’s latest excuse - Pelosi didn’t protest directly out of respect for “appropriate” legislative channels

    You seem to be upset by Pelosi but not upset by the torture itself. How is that possible?

    Hey Truth Detector, I am still waiting for you to show where I rushed to judgment on Rove, Bush and Cheney as you claimed I did. Show it or retract it, I am waiting.

    More like irritated by the blatant hypocrisy.
    Apparently this irritation can be considered extreme torture by todays standards.

    So I am not upset at all. Just a poor tortured soul.
    Thank you

    At the very least Pelosi should be removed as Speaker of the House. She makes my skin crawl.

    The Obama administration's CIA director, Leon Panetta, and Mr. Goss have both disputed Mrs. Pelosi's account.

    In a report to Congress on May 5, Mr. Panetta described the CIA's 2002 meeting with Mrs. Pelosi as "Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on [legal] authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed." Note the past tense -- "had been employed."

    Mr. Goss says he and Mrs. Pelosi were told at the 2002 briefing about the use of the EITs and "on a bipartisan basis, we asked if the CIA needed more support from Congress to carry out its mission." He is backed by CIA sources who say Mr. Goss and Mrs. Pelosi "questioned whether we were doing enough" to extract information.

    We also know that Michael Sheehy, then Mrs. Pelosi's top aide on the Intelligence Committee and later her national security adviser, not only attended the September 2002 meeting but was also briefed by the CIA on EITs on Feb. 5, 2003, and told about a videotape of Zubaydah being waterboarded. Mr. Sheehy was almost certain to have told Mrs. Pelosi. He has not commented publicly about the 2002 or the 2003 meetings.
