    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House majority leader reluctantly agreed Tuesday that congressional hearings should investigate Speaker Nancy Pelosi's assertion that she wasn't informed, more than six years ago, that harsh interrogation methods were used on an al-Qaida leader.

    Steny, I've always regarded as one of the adults in the House. He hangs on in any argument but you can tell when he is being made uncomfortable with taking a purely political stand; he's a lot like Congressman Dingell of Michigan. Both of these guys try to do the best for their party (and then their country), but they aren't ideologues.

    She will be doing all she can to squash this potential investigation - and might very well succeed, as the White House too will not wish to see this be made into a national spotlight issue focused primarily on Pelosi, and then by default, the Democrats as a whole.

    Yes! The GOP are very smart to involve Pelosi and not only involve her, but change the topic so now this fucking story is about her.

    Bush tortured. The Bush team knew they were breaking the laws. The GOP were defending Bush and torture. Now they want to say Pelosi is guilty? Of what? Why aren't they defending Pelosi for doing the right thing, in their eyes.

    Weren't these briefs top secret?

    Wasn't bush back then crying about whistleblowers and how they make us less safe?

    And then it ended up being Scooter/Cheney who were leaking and putting CIA agents at risk?

    That was rich.
