    I think the people supporting Pelosi are the people who voted her into office. Other than that, right now, the democrats are largely not rallying around her.

    Pelosi is only guilty of any crime if the EIT used are illegal. The democrats are the only ones who want to investigate the usage of torture/EITs. SO, based on that, I would say it's the democrats who actually want to investigate, the republicans who are just making alot of noise.

    Heres routine 5 form Pelosi.

    "We all share great respect for the dedicated men and women of the intelligence community who are deeply committed to the safety and security of the American people. My criticism of the manner in which the Bush Administration did not appropriately inform Congress is separate from my respect for those in the intelligence community who work to keep our country safe. What is important now is to be united in our commitment to ensuring the security of our country; that, and how Congress exercises its oversight responsibilities, will continue to be my focus as we move forward."

    Re: CIA Chief Rebuts Pelosi's Charges

    ABC, CBS and NBC Ignore Pelosiís Torture Hypocrisy



    "The broadcast networks have offered ample coverage of Democratic allegations that the Bush administration used either immoral or criminal methods in prosecuting the War on Terror. Canít they spare a few moments to note that one of the loudest complainers is someone who knew all about it years ago ó and has recently had a suspiciously shifting story about what she knew and when she knew it?"


    Did anyone expect them to act differently? Like reporters maybe?
    Thank you

    Re: CIA Chief Rebuts Pelosi's Charges

    Did Panetta really rebut Pelosi's charges? Not really. From his statement, it is clear that he is responding to the present situation, and not to past facts.

    Article, with link to Panetta's statement, itself is here.

    Is Pelosi lying? I don't know, although it is plainly clear that she is a political animal who would go down on a billy goat if it helped her own political career. I must say the same is certainly apparent about those who are attacking her right now.

    She's changed her story several times. I think she's covering her ass for failing to take action against something she now claims she opposes, and is looking for a fall guy. Problem is, Panetta's decided it ain't gonna be him.

    An agenda driven opinion blog isnt the best place to look for facts.

    How about a report?

    Report: Aide Told Pelosi of Waterboarding Use
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was told in February 2003 by her intelligence aide, Michael Sheehy, that waterboarding was used on CIA detainee Abu Zubaydah, according to a report.

    Panetta would not be the fall guy. He was not in the CIA in 2002. He does seem to be looking out for his people though, which is commendable. Other than that, you are probably right.
