Nancy Pelosi’s Plays Waterboarding Chicken with the CIA … Pelosi Says CIA is Lying



Nancy was briefed on the briefing, but she wasn’t formally briefed on the brief of the brief. That should clarify Nancy Pelosi’s comment.

What and when Speaker San Fran Nan knew that waterboarding was used as a form of harsh interrogation has turned into a full scale game of Chicken with the CIA.

The latest from the lips of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is that she is accusing intelligence officials of giving her “inaccurate and incomplete information” on the use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation tactics by the Bush administration.


Click on the pic of Pelosi to watch the stammering debacle called a new Conference where she is not very convincing and stammers throughout.
The good stuff starts at the 5:00 mark

In her first public comments on the matter since an intelligence report contradicted her recollections, Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters today that she was never told about the fact that waterboarding had been used on a terrorist suspect, even though terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah had been waterboarded a month before she was briefed on the subject in Sept. 2002.

“The only mention of waterboarding at that briefing was that it was not being employed,” Pelosi said, reading from a prepared statement. “Those briefing me in Sept. 2002 gave me inaccurate and incomplete information.”

Is Nancy Pelosi really going to pit her word against that of the CIA? Will it be as Jules Crittenden speculates, is Pelosi hedging her bet that the CIA will remain quiet, keeping its agents out of the limelight. Pelosi has told so many fabrications regarding this story that she is pot committed with no way out with a Jack high, unsuited. Does Pelosi really want to add more chips to the pot on a bluff when even MSNBC does not believe her?

Pelosi Now Says- CIA Are Liars Not Me

Powerline asks the ultimate question in this mess that Nancy Pelosi has created, can she survive as Speaker?

QUESTION: You say that Mr. Sheehy did tell you, your staff did tell you.

PELOSI: He informed me that the briefing had taken place. … When — when — when my staff person — I’m sorry, the page is out of order — five months later, my staff person told me that there had been a briefing — informing that there had been a briefing and that a letter had been sent. I was not briefed on what was in that briefing; I was just informed that the briefing had taken place.

So — so let’s get this straight. The Bush administration has conceived a policy, the CIA comes to the Congress, withholds information about the timing and the use of this subject. They — we later find out that it had been taking place before they even briefed us about the legal opinions and told us that they were not being used. …

QUESTION: Madam Speaker, just to be clear, you’re accusing the CIA of lying to you in September of 2002?

PELOSI: Yes, misleading the Congress of the United States, misleading the Congress of the United States. I am.

      OMG, If you want to get a headache and hear one of the most convoluted answers to a question ever, watch the Pelosi video.

      It should be turned into a drinking game where every time she says brief or briefing one must take a drink. WOW.

      I say old chap…

      Do you see that crazy guy with a hammer over there? He is coming at us. Shall we fight him?
      Shall we stoop down to his level? Let’s talk
      about it some more and have a meeting. Then we
      can follow it up with some tea and a briefing!!!

      Then we can — CONK!!! THUD

      Seriously, this debate reminds me of scenes
      straight out of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

      Liberals should be jailed or hospitalized, not elected.

      They are all cowards and losers.

      this old bat has probably gotten away with numerous lies and possibly risking the well being of this country. time for her to go and give some other career politician a chance to screw us.

      Nancy, we hardly knew yah. Problem is we do and we wish you would just go away. This is one angry, woman and she lies like a Used Car Salesman during the GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE that has lasted for 25 years. Ugh

      I have a question from San Fran Nan on my blog. If she (we are just pretending right now) was briefed in Sept. 2002 only about waterboarding being a future technique that the CIA said was legal – why the heck didn’t Ms. Principled Speaker of the House stand up and object before this technique was used? If you believe waterboarding is wrong, why would you not try to prevent its use before it happens?

      Of course in reality we know that every time San Fran Nan opens her mouth, she’s lying. Unfortunately, liberals get away with lying and defaming others all the time.

      the only thing that can go wrong with replacing pelosi is that the same damn people who elected pelosi will be electing her replacement. and they’ll be taking their cue from obama. how’s that for going jumping from the skillet into the fire.

      Tooooooo bad we can’t put a label on some of these people like the FDA wants to do with Cheerios, because they are misleading. Can imagine all the warning stickers stamped on their heads, so many in govt. Same old people in place who got us in this spending trillions to get us out..and then present it as doing US a favor, what’s wrong with this picture?

      Katablog – Unfortunately, right wingers get away with lying and defaming others all the time as well. It’s a politician thing. Not treading new water.
