I made a mistake.
What made you come to this conclusion?
i agree as well
Pulled his head out long enough to get some fresh air?
Well, Penetta was not there at the time, he should defend his own department, however what he said was not true...meaning, the CIA planned Iran contra affair, without letting congress know about it so, the CIA does not have the best of records as he implied...yes, 95% of the time they have been good and on the up and up, HOWEVER history does show, they have lied to congress and the American people, previously.
Panetta did not go in to ANY details on what precisely WAS SAID and of course there is no detailed records of it...bs., due to supposed confidentiality and only general notes....
I don't think any of us have enough REAL info yet to say that Nancy is lying or the CIA is lying, other than hype of he said she said....
I would recommend an independent investigation before saying the CIA actually did lie, or that she actually did, and should resign due to it.
Newt said some things that were uncalled for, and before i heard him today on the 24/7 I was leaning against her on all of this, but after newt was an ASSHOLE, I'm back to wanting a truth squad!
And that's different how?
this time he is at least admitting it
Panetta's memo was worded in such a way that it actually said nothing...he claimed the CIA isn't in the habit of misleading congress, or words to that effect. He did not say that the CIA doesn't ever mislead Congress...he's becoming a good spook master, lol...his job is to protect his agency.
Interesting how the "liberal media" misinterpreted his quote and used it as "proof" that Pelosi lied.
I give you props and rep
If we're counting on the veracity of the CIA to discredit Pelosi, we're counting on an agency with a fifty year history of misleading both Congress and every POTUS they ever worked for.
I have no idea what they told Pelosi, nor do I much care, either. The DEms rolled over and let Bush II's admin do anything it damned well pleased, so their protestations that they didn't know or were mislead simply do not much impress me. They were cowardly and failed to do their jobs in Congress.
But I know damned well that the record of the CIA isn't good when it comes to truth telling.
And if any of you read the history of the CIA, you'll know that too.
Both Republican POTUS and Democratic POTUS distrusted that organization precisely because it lies like a rug.
