    I say open an investigation on her and everyone else who might have known. If no laws were broken, no foul. On the other hand...

    Pelosi is not a liability to the Democratic party...she is a potential source of embarressment for the party if the CIA finds some way to prove that they did not lie to her. That won't happen. She will serve out her term and the people in her constituancy will continue to appreciate the value of thier Representative being the most powerful woman in the House...and re-elect her. What is really RNC and Conservative media attempts to distract Americans from the legality of torture during the Bush adminstration will be successful. Conservative media floods the airwaves the same way Conservative and anti Obama posters flood this site with posts.

    It strikes me that Republics want back in power more than Liberals want to keep it. They are willing to exaggerate, distract, and propagandize more. I almost think sometimes we should just let the Republics take over...even if they can't get things done we won't have to hear that constant catterwalling.
    Don't protect her. If she did wrong she should be punished. Its hypocritical to say we should try Cheney & Co. but not Pelosi. If you go down that road then you are no better than the people you just replaced.

    I think that will all come out in the wash of a investigation of who ordered torture to be used.

    Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzalas and their lawyers for starters.

    Finding out "who might have known" will just be a byproduct of taking out this garbage.

    I'm not protecting her. I put forth the notion that she is already protected.

    I agree with you that if she did something wrong that she should be punished...what I would like is for someone to come up with documentation that proves something either way...if not...everyone needs to move on and focus on something more critical like the economy.

    At the very least she needs to be removed as speaker..even that is barely adequate punishment.

    Do you think the punishment should preceed the guilty verdict?

    In this case yes.
    She publicly stated the CIA had lied to Congress during a War.
    Doing that during wartime in unconscionable.




    -When some other documents are released showing she was lying then she should lose her seat. By whatever mechanic Congress/President has for that.

    -IF she accused the CIA publicly of a crime against the nation+lied about it+ encouraged or signed off on it..then she and the far left have some serious problems.

    With all the mistakes the CIA has admitted they made in those recently released documents, it's obvious that none of those documents can be trusted. They were written up from "memory" of events that happened years ago.

    Next wild story from the RNC? That's RushNewtCheney!
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Re: Pelosi: Nothing more to say on her CIA allegation

    You know, all this talk about Pelosi being in the wrong or right is really just irking me. I really think we should treat all politicians the same and take everything they say with a grain of salt. If she can prove her innocence to the public, the people who trust her to do her job, then she's fine. Otherwise, all politicians are guilty until proven innocent. I really don't believe that she didn't know about the waterboarding. Especially since everyone else in the world knew about it.

    What if the CIA lied? And if you say the CIA never lies or goofs I'm going to die laughing
