    Go back a couple pages. I provided a link to Pelosi's statement on the briefing she recieved. She was told of interrogation methods that could be used in the future and where deemed legal.

    Let's see, there was Dick Nixon and Bill Clinton who lied and tried to cover it up. They were both in trouble for that. Now Pelosi does the same thing, will she wind up in trouble too?

    Yes, but she said they did not say they were going to use them, just that they thought they were legal. Big diff.

    She said:

    So technically, you are mostly right, but realistically, she knew at the very least that there was a high likelihood that they would be used.

    Watching your desperate attempts to rationalize a defense for Pelosi's OBVIOUS lies is ironic in contrast to the constant asinine remarks made about all the "perceived" lies of George Bush.

    Do you even comprehend the VAST inconsistencies of your hyper partisan political views?

    However, many people never thought it would never get to this point yet, look where we are. Get out your popcorn. The show ain't over.
    So it has nothing to do with lack of evidence eh? It is Holder, a Liberal Democrat, making a purely political choice.

    Which of Pelosi's OBVIOUS lies are you referring to. Please document it, since as it turns out, her statements and the CIAs claims match up. She was told that these techniques where being considered, not that they had been used. The CIA has not disputed this as far as I can tell. It's a fine distinction, but as things stand now, it looks like Pelosi was honest this time. If you can prove otherwise, I will happily look at your proof, since I really don't care for Pelosi, it might even be fun.

    Not "technically". Not "mostly". Just right.

    If the CIA didn't tell her "specifically" which torture techniques were being used, then you can't blame Pelosi for knowing which ones they actually used. It's really just that simple. Assumptions don't carry any weight here.

    And like I said, it wouldn't have mattered anyway. It didn't have any impact on what they did when Harmon wrote her report on it, did it?

    This is a distraction by the Repubs and a lame one at that.

    It's probably classified and you know it. So stop asking for something no one can provide.
