    But like I said, if that shoe fits, then by all means, wear it.
    So you are claiming ALL liberals are like this?

    Do you ever stop at generalizations of the other side? How can you call yourself "truth detector" and then make generalizing assumptions?

    You're a partisan HACK and nothing more, there is NO truth in your statements only partisan HATRED and BILE.

    The irony is overwhelming.

    The sad part is that you actually think you add anything to a thread with your selective whiney bitching.

    Even generalizations have some truth. To bad you're in such general denial about it.

    A partisan hack who NEVER deals in facts or the truth claiming others are “partisan hacks;” we call this hypocrisy and irony.

    There is nothing generalizing about what I stated; Pelosi's and Rockefellers denials about being briefed are outright lies. Why do they lie? Well some of us who still like using our brains and intellect comprehend that is merely to serve a partisan political purpose.

    But that stated, I am all eyes to see how you would explain away their OBVIOUS lies and distortions regarding this particular issue and how it is hardly partisan in nature and an attempt to impugn good men and woman.

    I challenge you to EVER show I am merely generalizing or lying with anything more than your typical bloviating hyperbole.

    I won't hold my breath for that day because based on your typical blathering on this forum, facts, honesty or the truth are rarely a prerequisite for your disingenuous patently farcical form of partisan BS.

    Carry on Next; your declarations would be comedic if they weren't so damned insulting and asinine.

    I am claiming that MANY Liberals are exactly like this; the examples would fill volumes.

    Let's start with voting FOR the Iraq war before they were against the war. How about the farcical Liberal claims that Bush “LIED” us into war.

    The list is too long to deal with in a single thread; but I can't wait to see a logical and intelligent rebuttal for why Liberal Democrats play such asinine games and then THINK that just because the press is a willful partner the TRUTH won't get out.

    Nailed.

    She should be forced to resign for conduct unbecoming US Congresswoman.



    Edit--woops didn't see the other post on this.
    So they were planning to use torture right after 9/11 eh? Before they even had a clear picture of who was ACTUALLY responsible... I wonder if it was something like - when we get our hands on one of those evil terrorists (that were all killed in their plane crashes) we are going to torture them and good... get me the DOJ on the phone -

    Now, if it's true that the briefing said something to the effect - we are going to waterboard and do other things that we have to get cleared through the DOJ, because we're not sure they are legal - then I would agree, she should be held accountable. But her story goes something like this -
    "Of the forty CIA briefings to Congress reported recently in the press, I was only briefed once, on September 4, 2002, as I have previously stated. As I said in my statement of December 9, 2007: 'I was briefed on interrogation techniques the Administration was considering using in the future. The Administration advised that legal counsel for both the CIA and the Department of Justice had concluded that the techniques were legal.' I had no further briefings on the techniques.

    "My understanding of the briefing I received is consistent with the description that CIA General Counsel Scott Muller provided to Congresswoman Jane Harman in a letter dated February 28, 2003, which states: 'As we informed both you and the leadership of the Intelligence Committees last September, a number of Executive Branch lawyers including lawyers from the Department of Justice participated in the determination that, in the appropriate circumstances, the use of these techniques is fully consistent with U.S. law.' As reported in the press, the accompanying memo from CIA Director Panetta concedes that the descriptions provided by the CIA may not be accurate."

    And how predictable (and pathetic) that liberals will gleefully cannibalize their own, happily paying the steep price in order to gratify their hatred of one man.
    I realize that you don't understand the ideology behind holding someone accountable (I mean from your own party) but if she is guilty then how is that "cannibalizing their own"?

    Unfortunately for those of us who live in the REAL world, Pelosi's apparent hypocrisy will cause very little loss of sleep for her. It is unlikely she will suffer politically for her apparent hypocrisy on this issue. After all, that is the sate MOST Democrats find themselves in on the debate about perceptions of what constitutes "torture" and the Iraq War.

    I am enjoying watching REALITY smack the followers of the Democrat Party and the participants who are happily condemning their Republican opponents in the belief that the media would not "OUT" them on these issues.
    Seems to me than anyone who uses the phrase "rabid partisan hyperbole" or "rabid hyperpartisan" as often as you do, must be trying to keep people from realizing that you're simply projecting.
