    Another Lawmaker Points To An Error In CIA Briefings Doc | TPMMuckraker

    Is this the aide that supposedly attended a top secret briefing and was told about waterboarding? I don't know, but I do wonder...why, oh why, would a Congressional aide attend top secret CIA briefings?

    CLIA: Central LACK of Intelligence Agency.



    The CIA is a pile of shit.


    They are a collection of living, breathing demons.


    Okay, I take that back. They aren't as bad as I said. They are simply worthless to America. That's all.

    Interesting Ravi...and it DOES SHOW that there is a possibility that the CIA is just WRONG on the Pelosi Graham situation as well.

    We need a well run intelligence agency.

    One which actually gathers INTEL.

    The CIA has a long history is missing the obvious and lying to the POTUS and Congress.

    No idea why we're put up with it for so long.

    I'm guessing the CIA has ways of protecting itself (administratively speaking) from the wrath of the civil authorites.

    Let's have an investigation shall we? get the real deal instead of opinion from partisan news hackers! that's the only fair way to go.

    So, while Pelosi has NOW decided to shut her mouth (a bit like shutting the barn door after the animals are out roaming), it's interesting that there are conflicting "recollections" of past events, though not at all unusual.

    Exact account of Pelosi briefings elusive - Washington Post- msnbc.com



    excerpt



    Conflicting recollections
    The differing interpretations of the briefing memos mirror the conflicting recollections of Pelosi and three other congressional leaders about what they were told roughly a year after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    Porter J. Goss (R-Fla.), the former representative who chaired the intelligence panel in 2002, has suggested that he and Pelosi left their briefing understanding "what the CIA was doing" and offering their support, while Pelosi said waterboarding and other aggressive techniques were mentioned only as legal tactics for future interrogations.

    Even more deeply divergent are the recollections of Bob Graham (D-Fla.), the former senator who chaired the Senate intelligence committee in 2002, and Sen. Richard C. Shelby (Ala.), the panel's ranking Republican. In interviews this week, Graham said waterboarding was never mentioned by CIA briefers in their meeting. But Shelby said that he and Graham were specifically told that the technique had already yielded valuable information.

    The CIA participated in more than 2,100 congressional briefings and meetings during the 110th Congress an average of more than 20 sessions a week. But the agency declined to discuss details of specific briefings, and a spokesman yesterday again dismissed suggestions that the agency gave lawmakers a misleading portrait of the interrogations.

    "The CIA takes seriously its responsibility to provide information to the United States Congress," said the spokesman, George Little.
