House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused CIA officials Thursday of misleading her in 2002 about the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” such as waterboarding, which simulates drowning and has been described by critics as torture.
This is Nancy’s third version, is it?
First she said
she was briefed on such techniques only once — in September 2002 — and that she was told at the time that the techniques were not being used.
Then there’s that letter Pelosi’s top aide Jane Harman wrote
Pelosi herself acknowledged in a December 2007 statement that she was aware that Harman had learned of the waterboarding and had objected in a letter to the CIA’s top counsel.
Now it’s everybody else, including the CIA, who is lying – according to Nancy.
Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion was listening to Nancy’s press conference, and added his own comments.
