    CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations' - Capitol Briefing

    Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used.

    :eek:

    i have a strong suspicion this is one of the reasons obama has backed off, that and the enhanced techniques might actually have been legal...

    Exactly so. So if they are going to jail the people writting the quite scholarly legal briefs allowing enchanced iterrogation then thay she make jail s[pace right next door for all the Dems that went along with it for the first 6+ years of the Bsh Administration.

    That is EXACTLY why after this epic failure at rewriting history the dems are now silent on the issue. They thought they could use their popularity over Obama to just rewrite what happened. Now they know better.

    This comes as no surprise to me.

    It's embarrassing that she's still in a leadership position.

    I'm with you on the first point, not so much on the second.

    Who would they replace her with? All the highest ranking Members were in on it. In both the House and the Senate. I knew she was full of shit when she wanted to replace the ranking democrat on a committee with Jefferson just months before he was charged, all because she did not like the other guy.

    It was more of an in general statement as opposed to relating to this particular charge. I just can't stand Pelosi and Reid.
