    White House Dodges Question About Pelosi

    FOX News' Major Garrett was the first and only reporter to ask Press Secretary Robert Gibbs what the White House's reaction is to Nancy Pelosi's accusation that the C.I.A. lied to her. Gibbs said President Obama is "keeping the American people safe by looking forward." Garrett reminded Gibbs this is a serious matter, leading Gibbs to respond that he will not "R.S.V.P" to get involved.

    The first and ONLY?
    Thats a pretty big damnation of the WH Press Corps.




    Panetta comments to CIA workers after Pelosi's garbage-

    "There is a long tradition in Washington of making political hay out of our business. It predates my service with this great institution, and it will be around long after I'm gone. But the political debates about interrogation reached a new decibel level yesterday when the CIA was accused of misleading Congress," CIA Director Leon Panetta wrote in a letter publicly released.

    "My advice -- indeed, my direction -- to you is straightforward: ignore the noise and stay focused on your mission. We have too much work to do to be distracted from our job of protecting this country," he wrote. "We are an agency of high integrity, professionalism, and dedication. Our task is to tell it like it is-even if that's not what people always want to hear. Keep it up. Our national security depends on it."

    Gingrich-
    "I think she has lied to the House, and I think that the House has an absolute obligation to open an inquiry, and I hope there will be a resolution to investigate her. And I think this is a big deal. I don't think the Speaker of the House can lie to the country on national security matters,”
    ..
    "Speaker Pelosi's the big loser, because she either comes across as incompetent, or dishonest. Those are the only two defenses,” Gingrich said. “The fact is she either didn't do her job, or she did do her job and she's now afraid to tell the truth.”

    Didn't they boot a Gingrich out of Washington back when Clinton was in office? Something about him embarrassing the Repubs?

    Well we know you'll agree with Far Left Star Chuck Schumer!

    I'd like to interject a note of balance here ...

    I think there are probably very few people in this room or in America who would say that torture should never be used, particularly if thousands of lives are at stake. Take the hypothetical: If we knew there was a nuclear bomb hidden in an American city and we believed that some kind of torture, fairly severe maybe, would give us a chance of finding that bomb before it went off, my guess is that most Americans and most senators, maybe all, would say:

    'Do what you have to do.' "

    But as the last line in the article it comes from says---
    But that was in 2004, before common sense in the party of FDR, Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy suffered grievous wounds.

    When it comes to a choice between the civil rights of a suspected terrorist and the imperative to gather essential information that can save even a few lives of innocent civilians. I come down on the side of saving lives. I go even farther by saying the tactics used is not the business of the public and to divulge it is to invite more extremist acts of terror. I do believe there is a limit to the use of torture but I believe the use of drugs is humane and has no lasting effects. I go another step and say that it should be widely known that if convicted of and act of terror the guilty party will be hung with in 14 days and the body wrapped in pig skin and buried in an unmarked grave.
    In the 1800s in India a rumour spread that its cartridges were greased with pig and cow fat, thus offending both Muslims and Hindus. In February 1857 the 19th (Bengal Native) Infantry refused to use the cartridges. They were quickly disbanded but their actions were to spark a chain of similar events through central and northern India.
    The threat alone is enough to dissuade fanatics who believe they will not go to their final reward because they would be defiled after death.
    It's not torture and as to disrespectful? Who cares if it saves lives and the so-called defiled is a murderer. Oh yes in the case of bombers we gather the pieces and put then in a bag made of raw pig skin.
    If this offends you then don't be a terrorist, and or stop being a terrorist sympathizer.

Its simply Cheney is trying to make it the normal practice and he is advocating for torture he has to be met by the opposition because we have already agreed that torture is not the path we wish to go down.

    Nancy Pelosi was in 1 meeting as opposed to ALL that Bush and Cheney engaged in. And they are taking the 1 meeting not even a year after 9/11 we all gave Bush rope because we didnt know what was to come. But Bush and cheney took it as a sign that we can change the laws to institute torture that is the real problem I believe. Not the torture but trying to make torture who we are and we should use it in every case meaning when it fails we have no other options because we have settled on the last resort being the only one.
    Can you produce the law that said waterboarding was illegal at the time it was used? Thanks in advance.
