    Pelosi Accuses CIA of 'Misleading' Congress on Waterboarding






    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday accused the CIA of misleading Congress about its use of enhanced interrogation techniques on terror detainees.

    "Yes I am saying the CIA was misleading the Congress, and at the same time the (Bush) administration was misleading the Congress on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, to which I said that this intelligence doesn't support the imminent threat," Pelosi said at her weekly news conference.

    "Every step of the way the administration was misleading the Congress and that is the issue and that's why we need a truth commission," she said.

    Under a barrage of questioning, Pelosi adamantly insisted that she was not aware that waterboarding or other enhanced interrogation techniques were being used on terrorism suspects.

    "I am telling you they told me they approved these and said they wanted to use them but said they were not using waterboarding," she said.

    Even when she tries to cover her ass, her own lies show up.

    Bush never said Iraq was an 'imminent threat', that was why so many of us opposed the war to begin with.

    This woman is such a bullshit artist.... dumber than a box of rocks...

    About the only people dumber are the citizen voters in the SF area that keep voting her in

    How many times can she change her story? How many times can she backpedal? And it is not like she is a good liar, it is so blatantly obvious when she is spinning her yarns....

    Aren't you defending her? Why do you defend Bush but not her?

    I see. You're trying to make this about her.

    Like when you attacked Dan Rather and took the focus off the fact that Bush actually did go MIA during the Viet Nam war.

    How many times did Bush change the reason for why we were in Iraq?

    1. WMD's
    2. To spread democracy
    3. Because it was the central front on the war on terror
    4. So the Iraqi central government could get started
    5. Because Saddam was a bad man

    Now she says the CIA lied. Obama wants this to go away and Pelosi keeps stirring the pot. I guess it's time to find out who will win this bout, Obama or Pelosi.
