    One of Pelosi's main aides was present at a brieifing specifically dealing with the waterboarding of one of the scumbags.
    Top Pelosi Aide Learned Of Waterboarding in 2003

    By Paul Kane

    Saturday, May 9, 2009

    A top aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attended a CIA briefing in early 2003 in which it was made clear that waterboarding and other harsh techniques were being used in the interrogation of an alleged al-Qaeda operative, according to documents the CIA released to Congress on Thursday.

    OH Sen. Rockerfeller was also briefed. He often liked to claim the Bush Administration was not telling them what was going on.
    That outright BS..and he made those claims all the way until Bush left office.


    Docs Show Rockefeller Was Briefed On "How The Water Board Was Used"
    By Zachary Roth - May 8, 2009, 12:31PM

    The hot story of the morning is the release of CIA documents appearing to show that Nancy Pelosi was briefed on "enhanced interrogation techniques" in September 2002. Things have already descended into a he-said she-said debate -- literally -- over exactly what Pelosi was told, and whether the new information contradicts what she'd said in the past.

    But let's set that aside for a second, because according to the documents, it was another Democratic lawmaker who received the first briefing whose summary in the newly released document specifically mentions waterboarding -- the technique that has been at the center of the controversy, especially for Pelosi lately.

    In February, 2003, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, then the ranking Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, was briefed -- along with Intel chair Pat Roberts and a staff member for each senator -- on "enhanced interrogation techniques"

    I know you guys smell blood buuuuut, nowhere in either of those articles, nor in the CIA notes on Pelosi's briefing, do I read that Pelosi was informed what EITs were going to be used. And nobody else who was briefed after Pelosi has said they discussed their briefing with Pelosi.

    So, what's the big deal?

    She was so briefed she has admitted, though there is debate whether she was briefed they had been used, or that they where proposed to be used.

    CIA says Pelosi knew about waterboarding; she says no

    Right. And her briefing was in Sept 2002. So what are these folks getting all worked up over? Nothing and nobody has said anything contrary to what Pelosi claims.

    So again, whaz the fuss?

    Not sure actually. If her statement is accurate, there really is nothing to make a fuss about that I can see.

    And you're supporting a politician who was too stupid to ask? So she didn't know then, didn't ask, so couldn't be outraged, right?

    Being a senior Democrat, she is exempt from the standards of conduct normally reserved for members of the Bush Administration.

    She is also automatically pardoned when she commits the selfsame presumptive sins of the Bush Administration.

    Thus is the putrid double standard of liberals in this country.
