Nancy Pelosi Knew … CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of ‘Enhanced Interrogations’ … Water Boarding


Nancy Pelosi: LIAR, LIAR … “I did not have knowledge of waterboarding, not a single time”. Democratic Speaker of the House stood there and wagged her finger at all of us stating that she had no knowledge of water boarding and was not briefed on “enhanced interrogations.” Like another more famous finger wagger before her, maybe she might have wanted to learn something from that mistake. Speaker Pelosi … do you care to clarify your statement?

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive

According to a report prepared by the Director of National Intelligence’s office, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed on the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” on terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah in September 2002.

The report, submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee and other Capitol Hill officials Wednesday, appears to contradict Pelosi’s statement last month that she was never told about the use of waterboarding or other special interrogation tactics. Instead, she has said, she was told only that the Bush administration had legal opinions that would have supported the use of such techniques. The report details a Sept. 4, 2002 meeting between intelligence officials and Pelosi, then-House intelligence committee chairman Porter Goss, and two aides. At the time, Pelosi was the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee.

The meeting is described as a “Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of particular EITs that had been employed.”

So much for this story from Pelosi from Flopping Aces:

“Pelosi: Bush Administration Never Briefed Congress On Waterboarding?” The story was based on Pelosi’s insistence that “We were not — I repeat, we were not — told that water boarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used.”

The documents released by the CIA all but prove that Nancy Pelosi had been briefed since 2002 on waterboarding and other EIT’s and contradict her 18 month denial of repeated statements that she had no knowledge. As the Gateway Pundit puts it, Pelosi was caught in a Bald Faced lie.

Could it be put into a better phrase for Pelosi’s actions than that of Jules Crittenden, “Liar, liar, pants on fire.”

UPDATE I: More Evidence that Pelosi Lied and Knew About Waterboarding

As reported in the Washington Post, a top aide to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi attended a CIA briefing in early 2003 that made it perfectly clear that “waterboarding and other harsh techniques” were being used in the interrogation of an alleged al-Qaeda operative.

Pelosi has insisted that she was not directly briefed by Bush administration officials that the practice was being actively employed. But Michael Sheehy, a top Pelosi aide, was present for a classified briefing that included  Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), then the ranking minority member of the House intelligence committee, at which agency officials discussed the use of waterboarding on terrorism suspect Abu Zubaida.

A Democratic source acknowledged yesterday that it is almost certain that Pelosi would have learned about the use of waterboarding from Sheehy. 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.

As stated at Hot Air, Pelosi’s attempt to glom onto Rep. Jane Harman’s objection since both  Pelosi and Sheehy attended a briefing on September 4, 2002, five months before Harman attended her first briefing.

Nancy Pelosi exposed as a war criminal! – Nancy Pelosi Lied, Terrorists Cried!

From Fox News available on You Tube and also seen at Wake Up America, seen below has Nancy Pelosi in some hot water that Pelosi has lied regarding waterboarding.

She is being called out by her own party, in fact one of her own aides, the GOP with Pete Hoekstra wanting a full investigation as to who knew what and when and recently released documents show that Pelosi was, indeed, briefed and told in 2002.

Yes, let’s have a full investigation and release all the docs. The fact that the LEFT is hanging on to the pathetic notion of semantics that she was not “directly” or “personally” briefed is just that, pathetic. Please, just take your medicine before this story gets more out of control than it already is.

      The first word in politics:

      Deny, Deny, Deny!


      Funny how people in government are so drunk in their own power that they ignore, even, the things that come with common sense. How could they possibly think they’re above the law, just because something is being done in secret? The truth eventually comes out of the closet. She should know… she hails from San Francisco!

      This is disgusting. This is the kind of people that we have running our country. I don’t think anything to come could shock me. These people have done it all.

    3. PA Mom on May 8th, 2009 3:30 pm

      Just read another article on fox news. She is denying what she said.

      Maybe we should re-name her position:

      Let’s call her ‘First Chair’ to the Secretary of State and clean up the West coast of human trafficking. San Francisco is the BEST place to start and from there, it only gets better.

      Free Women and those Who try to Act like them!

      Ooooooh San Francisco…

      All you hear is the ‘ticking’ of the clock.

      I’m serious!

      senators alexander and shelby reminded the attorney general, during a senate hearing yesterday, that he had been privy to the information that the clinton white house had sent captured terrorists to other countries so they could be “more vigorously interrogated” than would be possible by the u.s. their position was that if bush’s lawyers were at fault, then so was clinton, his a.g., and the current a.g. as well.

      Just another highly paid liar. What’s the big deal? We have hundreds more where she came from…

      They are all a bunch of liars and gutless turds.

    10. rightknight on May 9th, 2009 1:49 am

      Perhaps waterboarding his devious woman
      would help wring the truth out of her! The
      self-responsibility gene is missing.

    11. Carpe on May 9th, 2009 1:59 am

      There is that t. word again. Publicly, I never act like I like it, but privately… I have a
      little party in my head and my eyes do a wiggle
      dance whenever I read it.

      Pelosi is a turkle burger! A very sad, puckery, sun-dried up one that some large dog planted in
      the park like it was a priceless treasure.

      It almost makes me want to run over and kick it
      out of vindictivness and shout: See you dumb bitch, I just made you go back to San Francisco!

      …but I am afraid of feeling dirty and liking it.

      So, I just keep on walking.

    12. HOPE on May 9th, 2009 5:54 am

      Not all of them.

      They, simply, bring their own agendas.

      In the case of Miss San Francisco

      is that she wants to be head of her class.


      But her heart is in Women’s rights…


      We know it exists in Sacramento.
      Just think of China Town!
      Girl slaves by day…
      Human Sex Slaves by Night.
      Movies, pedophilia, boys…
      It’s all right there.

      years ago who know only to sew.

      What I wouldn’t do to have access to everything
      on Nina’s husband’s computers right now… and the film.

      It’s all right there.
