Speaker Nancy Pelosi Sounding Like Bill Clinton … I Did Not Have Knowledge of Waterboarding, Not A Single Time
Speaker Pelosi, Me thinks thou dost protest too much … And you are fabricating having knowledge of waterbaording.
Nancy Pelosi was for knowing about waterboarding before she was against it.
Nancy Pelosi states that she was never advised about waterboarding. Really? What about the 30 meetings and briefings with members of Congress on the subject since 2002 regarding enhanced interrogation techniques? If Democrats were ok with it back then, why now do they have such a problem with waterboarding and want to prosecuting Bush-era lawyers for justifying “enhanced” interrogation techniques? Party politics as usual and more change. Nancy Pelosi is either lying, ignorant, naive or just was not paying attention. Any one of the reasons makes her hardly fit to be Speaker.
The first such briefing dealt with the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, the Al Qaeda operations chief who ran the training camps in Afghanistan where the Sept. 11 hijackers were trained. Sources said California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, now the speaker of the House, attended the meeting with then-Rep. Porter Goss, R-Fla. (who later became CIA director), and she did not raise any objections.
The briefings were given to the chairmen and ranking members of the intelligence committees in the House and Senate until 2006. That could cover Sen. John Rockefeller, W.Va., and Rep. Jane Harman, Calif., both Democrats, as well as Sen. Pat Roberts, Kan., Sen. Lindsey Graham, S.C., Sen. Richard Shelby, Ala., and Rep. Pete Hoekstra, Mich., all Republicans.
Notice the Pelosi finger wagging denial, reminds us a bit of another’s denial that would later be proved to be a lie.
As far back as 2002 Nancy Pelosi was was told about enhanced interrogation techniques in graphic detail. From The Washington Post:
In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA’s overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.
Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.
“The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough,” said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.
Former President Bill Clinton’s finger pointing denial of “not having sex with that woman” looks a bit like Speaker Pelosi’s denial.
Flopping Aces weighs in as well on the fact that Pelosi knew about waterbaording before she didn’t … Which proves she lied. Period.
Add waterbaording outrage to the long line of hypocrisy and lies from none other than Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Anyone notice she blinks when she lies.
read about it in the NY Times
she was briefed, but denied it.
With Pelosi in power…I take my own advice here..”be afraid, be very afraid!”
RIGHT….She had no knowledge of anything. Sure she didn’t. She’s either lying or a complete idiot or both. No surprise really, she’s an idiot. She probably thought they were talking about a water sport. I don’t see the problem with being a little rough on terrorist but then again that’s just me, I’m not a liberal that believes we should all hold hands and sing.
#1: sure did and if we could see her ears, i bet they would be purple just like van der sloot when he lies.
and the d-crats are all crying about torture ! what a big put on. you know if this was going on at the time, all politicians knew about it including obama. of course when it came up he probably just said “uh, present”. all they need now is cindy sheehan to represent them.
yeah, what happened to that cindy?
she still is camping at Bush his ranch?
last i heard on cindy was that she wanted pelosi’s job.
next we will hear that pelosi has alszhiemers and can’t seem to remember a thing that would incriminate her.
President Obama needs to cut the apron strings from Nancy pelosi as his waffling on the faux torture subject is no more than a masked attempt by Pelosi to widen the already huge rift between Republicans and Democrats.
No one in the last administration should be liable for what did NOT amount to “torture”. This is so divisive as we may have bullied and abused within acceptable and ascribed guidelines to acquire needed information but by no stretch of the imagination did we “torture” those we held.
There is another agenda underfoot with this and President Obama needs to cut this one off completely and tell Nancy Pelosi and the other extreme legislators to move on to more pressing needs, starting right now.
#5: That’s why they call her ‘blinky’.
Selective memory is certainly a specialty of
our liberal ladies. Mrs. Clinton is the all-time
prize winner for innumerable convenient ‘lapses’
thereof. Pelosi, tho vacuous in so many ways, is
runner-up in the guided forgetfulness department.
She can turn on that ‘deer in the headlights’ look
as often as required (or not required). It’s not
REALLY lying, is it?
Please pass the sodium pentathol, thanks!
pelosi is lying again. what’s new about that?
big difference of course is:
knowledge that the ‘enhanced interrogation methods’ can be used by CIA.
and knowledge that the ‘enhanced interrogation methods’ were actually used by the CIA at some point.
but this might be too complicated for some.

She was trampled to death last week by a pack
of unhinged lesbians.
Something about Birkenstock’s closing their doors
forever, or something.
Maybe we’ll get lucky and have George, Jr.
hung for his war crimes like Sudam…
It’s so funny to watch those who make excuses for
people who inflict torture on others, while they
cry in their beer and pray for justice for what
they perceive as torture committed against their
Laugh out Loud!
Get a life…
Pelosi needs to be waterboarded to find out the truth.
Nancy Pelosi has a strong lead in the race for:
Thug-ess of the 21st Century.
#10, love the suggestion, but it’s probably disallowed by the Geneva ConFention.
When my brother-in-law went through fighter pilot training in the early 70s, they sent him to a simulated POW camp, run by Vietnamese.
They beat him, they shocked him, they sleep deprived him, they attempted to drown him, and they starved him.
Was this torture?
Big deal! Who cares? I’ve seen fraternity initiations that treated the guys worse.
We have the biggest bunch of sissies in congress I’ve ever seen. They have no guts. They have no brains. They are the biggest bunch of hypocrites the world has ever known.
These Barney Frank (Porky Pig) like clones are testicleless.
Talk about someone who needs to be investigated, lets talk about old Brainless Barney. It’s true torture for most normal folks to have to listen to old Barney.
Harry Reid—now that is a form of torture they need to outlaw. I would rather be water boarded than to listen to that little sarcastic, bitter, tree-hugging, green pooping, self-aggrandizing, sissy ex-boxer,
I’ll bet in my prime, I could have taken Harry in his prime in less than 2 rounds. I’ll bet he would have run home to mommy, crying.
caesu…yeah…too complicated for you and Pelosi!
Caesu…seriously, not truly sure if you were being serious or siding with that creature claiming to be the a human named Pelosi, but she knows precisely what she is doing as do all of Obamanation and his anti-American administration.
#14 So now you want GWB dead. WOW! You need help.
those lesbian stampedes are dangerous
#12 get a clue clown. Unreal. It’s amazing the excuses the pigs on the left make up. Former CIA heads have said she was in those meetings. Why won’t Obama release the memos with the minutes, etc surrounding these meetings? Proof is in the pudding.
