    Pelosi: CIA misled her on waterboarding

    Pelosi: CIA misled her on waterboarding

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bluntly accused the CIA on Thursday of misleading her and other lawmakers about its use of waterboarding during the Bush administration, escalating a controversy grown to include both political parties, the spy agency and the White House.

    "It is not the policy of this agency to mislead the United States Congress," responded CIA spokesman George Little, although he refused to answer directly when asked whether Pelosi's accusation was accurate.

    But the House's top Democrat, speaking at a news conference in the Capitol, was unequivocal about a CIA briefing she received in the fall of 2002.

    "We were told that waterboarding was not being used," the speaker said. "That's the only mention, that they were not using it. And we now know that earlier they were." She suggested the CIA release the briefing material.
    Off with the heads of all these lying ****s.

    I'm a bit open on this one. I would like to see all documents declassified to show who knew what and were. However im a bit skeptical of the CIA there intelligence isn't always on key.

    If its found she lied about being briefed, lied about not being briefed, lied about being misled by the CIA, lied about being misled by Bush.

    Then what?
    (since that is what she's now in trouble for.. not the action she is lying about)

    You all realized how much she screwed up with this?

    On a personal Pelosi level she faces losing the Speakership, perhaps a vote of no confidence, and maybe ejection for conduct unbecoming a member for the house. For lying multiple times.

    ...But thats not all and may in the end may not even be the worst of it for Democrats/Left/Obama/and most notably the Far Left.

    She accused the CIA of lying. Claimed they misled her-

    Well the CIA isn't going to roll over and die for Pelosi. They are going to defend themselves.
    Not only that but when she goes through what may end up being major public hearings into her conduct the evidence neither she nor Obama wants released will need to be released.
    This mortally threatens some major talking points especially form the Far left. Entire 6 year old routines could be publicly exposed as fantasy and their purveyors as conspiracy theorist nuts.


    IOW she just singlehandedly not only shot herself in the ass but undermined the effort to not have any documents but the ones Obama released that started this entire thing. People will demand to see them and either they will be released or we will see them one day leaked to the NYT(and believe me the NYT will shaft Obama for that in a heartbeat)
