    Boehner Keeps Pressure on Pelosi for CIA Accusation

    Boehner Keeps Pressure on Pelosi for CIA Accusation - Political News - FOXNews.com

    House Minority Leader John Boehner refused Thursday to let Speaker Nancy Pelosi off the hook for accusing the CIA of lying to Congress about Bush-era interrogation techniques employed on terror suspects.

    "She's made this outrageous claim," he said, asserting that it has undermined the ability of intelligence officials to keep America safe. "And believes that it's just all going to go away. Well, just trust me: It's not going to go away."

    Good for him she needs to either to show the proof if not then she needs to resign.

    The CIA does lie. That is nothing new. Pelosi is not alone in stating the CIA is incorrect in who it briefed and what it told them. Since when was the CIA the ultimate source of truth?

    Really so you do understand that it's a Federal Law if the CIA/ DoD/FBI/NSC/NSA lie to Congress. Trust me on this one if any of us every leid to congress we would feel the full effect of Congress on us.


    Have you ever sat in a Congressinal Briefing I have and I can tell you this it's rather straight to the point with no punchs pulled by the Congress Men/Women.

    Mo the CIA didn't lie and they have the paperwork and records along with the other members of congress who were also in these briefing backing them up.

    There is no proof on either side. It is "my word against your word", and both sides are suspect in this. CIA records are reportedly wrong for at least 3 congressmen other than Pelosi on briefings they gave. You are not going to get enough to seriously go after anyone in this. Boehner is just going for political points.

    Well, gosh . . . I wonder who has the bigger incentive to lie here? Why would Panetta contradict Pelosi if it weren't true?

    I am not accusing Panetta of lying. The records are questionable.

    If you do not trust the CIA, what agency do you propose replace the CIA?

    Really then why don't you and Nancy PROVE IT in a COURT OF LAW.

    Oh yeah..because you and her will go to jail for falsely accusing the CIA of lying.


    Pelosi needs to be removed as Speaker of the House. Her remaining in that position is horrible.


    Oh and go Boehner..Pelosi accused the CIA of lying which is a crime. If she does not step down I hope this turns into a court case because it will not only destroy her but it will destroy YEARS of Far Left rhetoric.

    Biggest fear the left has in this entire thing is that Pelosi has trapped herself into a position in which their rhetoric over the years will be challenged and shows t be made up.
