    CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'

    Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used.

    In a 10-page memo outlining an almost seven-year history of classified briefings, intelligence officials said that Pelosi and then-Rep. Porter Goss (R-Fla.) were the first two members of Congress ever briefed on the interrogation tactics. Then the ranking member and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, respectively, Pelosi and Goss were briefed Sept. 4, 2002, one week before the first anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    The memo, issued by the Director of National Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency to Capitol Hill, notes the Pelosi-Goss briefing covered "EITs including the use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah." EIT is an acronym for enhanced interrogation technique. Zubaydah was one of the earliest valuable al-Qaeda members captured and the first to have the controversial tactic known as water boarding used against him.

    Watch the liberals come rushing in here to defend the lying bitch. It's time liberals apologized for their hypocracy.

    SAY YOU'RE SORRY.

    I think she may be nailed, but your limiting your belief that she should resign to ONLY her makes you look incredibly partisan. JMO

    Okay, say you're sorry now.

    Why should I say I'm sorry? I never defended her. In fact next election, I am voting Reid out at least and wish I could do the same with Pelosi. Reid has been on my hitlist to get out for the past 4 years.

    No we won't.

    I am a liberal & if Pelosi was accurately briefed that we even intended to commit war crimes & she did nothing to stop them, then she should be removed from office & possibly prosecuted herself.
    Anyone involved in war crimes is a war criminal.

    Wow, you can do that? I'm impressed. I thought in the US it took a lot more than one person to vote someone out.

    Come to think of it, how do you vote someone out? Is there an option to vote This person is out?

    If you really need clarification on what I said, that is pretty sad. It means I am voting for the other guy. Reid had his shot and IMO blew it and I will not support him.

    Oh, OK. I thought from what you said, the voting in NV (Reid so I'm assuming NV) might be abnormal.
