Top Lawmakers Were in the Loop on Interrogations
"there were more than 30 meetings and briefings with members of Congress on the subject since 2002. "
The Bush administration did not inform Congress that it had waterboarded detainees in classified briefings, after the agency had already done so, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) charged Thursday.
"In that or any other briefing...we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used," said Pelosi. "What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel...opinions that they could be used, but not that they would."
One says...didnt happen. The other produces a pack of documentation.
close call. 30 meetings will be hard to hide.
