House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is in hot water over her claim that she was not briefed in 2002 on waterboarding being practiced. She amended her story slightly in a press conference Thursday, saying, "The only mention of waterboarding at that briefing was that it was not being employed," adding, "those briefing me in September 2002 gave me inaccurate and incomplete information." She admitted to knowing about waterboarding in practice in 2003.

Whether or not Pelosi knew of the practice in 2002, the evidence is clear that she was present for the briefing on the technique, and she said nothing until it was more politically convenient. Claiming that she was lied to four years after the interrogation tactics became public doesn't pass the sniff test. The uproar even led House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), no close friend of Pelosi's, to declare earlier this week, "What was said and when it was said, who said it, I think that is probably what ought to be on the record as well." After what we can only assume was a waterboarding session with the speaker that night, Hoyer "clarified" that he didn't mean Pelosi, but Republicans. As blogger Ed Morrissey notes, "[Pelosi] had better hope that more detailed briefing notes never get made public. Pelosi just dared the CIA to leak again, and I don't think they're likely to get intimidated by her at this point."

pelosi and lies

I think Ms. pelosi has fabricated more than Jesse James form LBC. I can't remember who said it, but to paraphrase...all politicians are corrupt, it is the stupid ones that get caught.

The strategy to defame President Bush by leaking the CIA reports has a backlash the Speaker had not thought of.

Agreed, clitofalesbo

Trying to run bush into the ground by first running the CIA into the ground is not a smart move. I doubt Pelosi is a member here, but just in case, HEY DUMBSHIT, THEY DISCOVER EMBARRASING SECRETS FOR A LIVING!!!! And if they can't discover any (highly unlikely for a career politician), they can create some. Not smart. It wouldn't surprise me to see photos of Pelosi and her hubby having a threeway with some underage girl.
