Pelosi Lied. No Surprise.

Speaker Pelosi has maintained that Congressional leaders were never told that waterboarding or any other enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs) were used on terror suspects.

"In that or any other briefing we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used. What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel opinions that they could be used."

Her statements beg the question that if any in Congress found the types of EITs which might be used on terror suspects objectionable, or question the legality thereof, that the time to do so was before they were used. But, the fact of the matter is that Nancy Pelosi is a liar! A just released 10 page document shows that Pelosi was briefed on Sept. 4th, 2002 that EITs were used on Abu Zubaydah as show in the document page below (click for a larger view).

The report also details 40 meetings with members of Congress -- though not with Pelosi present – during which the use of waterboarding and other interrogation techniques was described, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Senate intelligence committee’s chairman and ranking member, Bob Graham and Richard Shelby, were given a briefing similar to the one with Pelosi and Goss on Sept. 27, 2002, according to the report.

On Feb. 4, 2003, a briefing on “enhanced interrogation techniques” for Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, D-W.Va., revealed that interrogations of Abu Zubaydah and Abd Al-Rahim Al-Nashiri were taped.

In addition, that briefing “described in considerable details” the techniques used, including “how the water board was used.”

A similar briefing the following day included Goss and Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., who by that time had become the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, when Pelosi moved on to become minority leader.

There was never any doubt that the Speaker was lying, it was only a matter of when and how those lies would be exposed. These days however, there seems to be a great unwillingness on the part of the Republicans to call a Democrat caught in a deliberate falsehood, a liar. So let me be crystal clear. Nancy Pelosi is not only a liar, she is a damn liar!

now, it's only a matter of IF AMERICANS WILL HEAR SHE LIED. Our media's so in the bag for the Left that there isn't much conversation on this. Not much at ALL.
Imagine if a Conservative had lied like this? HELL TO PAY.

I don't recognize this country anymore and, if we don't get a Conservative Woodward and Bernstein soon, it's going to be lost. :-(
Thanks for coming by geeeZ with your kind words, DA...I appreciated them very much xx
