Documented Liar Pelosi Was Briefed On Enhanced Interrogations That ‘HAD BEEN EMPLOYED’

Nancy Pelosi is a demagogue, a liar, and a hypocrite.  While that has always been true, it is now a documented fact. Pelosi demonized Bush officials, literally leading the rabid dog pack out for Bush blood.  Then it was pointed out that she had been briefed on the waterboardings, as had been documented in a Washington Post article from 2002.  And why didn’t she raise a complaint then when it would have actually mattered beyond political demagoguery? Finally she was forced to admit that she had in fact received a briefing, but quibbled in a “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is” manner by claiming she was told the enhanced interrogation techniques “could” be performed, not that they “would” be performed:

In a Thursday press briefing, Pelosi flatly denied that she was ever told waterboarding would be used. “My colleague [Porter Goss], the chairman of the committee, has said ‘if they say that it’s legal you have to know they are going to use them,'” she said. “Well, his experience is that he was a member of the CIA, later went on to head the CIA and maybe his experience is that if they tell you one thing they may mean something else. My experience is that they did not tell us they were using that. Flat out. And any — any contention to the contrary is simply not true.” “Pelosi said her recollection was, ‘They told us they had opinions from the [Justice Department’s] Office of Legal Counsel that they could, but not that they were’ using so-called enhanced techniques, ‘and that if and when they were used, they would brief Congress at that time,'” reported Congressional Quarterly. “She said she was never told that such techniques were actually being used.” “‘As a member of Intelligence, I thought I was being briefed. I realized that was not true when I became ranking member’ and got more information, she said,” according to CQ Politics.

Now the Demagogue of the House is even being revealed to be lying about her qualification regarding her earlier lies. A newly released official report dated September 4, 2002 by the Director of National Intelligence reveals that one Nancy Pelosi was in fact briefed by the CIA, with said briefing including (and see here for the actual memo):

“Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed.

No “could” or “would” Nancy.  Try “had been employed.”  She was briefed on what had in fact already occurred.  And so were other Democrats, such as Jay Rockefeller.  Right from the start.  And there is no record whatsoever that they offered any objections or even had any qualms about what was going on.

Even if Pelosi’s position were accepted at face value, Pelosi is still being blatantly dishonest.  In her own acknowledgment, she was told waterboarding “could” happen.  Here’s the question: where was her outrage at what she and her party now say was such a barbaric and immoral practice?  Where are the letters expressing her moral qualms, such as Jane Harmon sent in the similar matter of destroying CIA tapes of the interrogation sessions?  She expressed none.  Legally, the failure to object is implied consent.  And here she is just a few years later helping to demonize Republicans?  And the fact is, we don’t have to accept Pelosi’s position, because we have the official record that confirms she has been lying about what she knew and when she knew it.

This represents two moralities: the post-9/11 morality, which held that the United States would go to certain lengths to protect itself from terrorist attacks; and the 2008-2009 morality, which holds that Democrats who agreed with the post-9/11 morality can now hypocritically and for sheer partisan political purposes attack Republicans for harboring a view that key Democrats themselves harbored when it served their interests to do so.

And we can add Barack Hussein and Hillary Clinton to the list of liars whose lies keep changing. Obama released the so-called “torture memos” as nothing less than a blatant partisan attempt to criminalize political differences and demonize the opposition party.  They got their pound of flesh, I presume.  But now that Obama is backing away from the show trial liberals want, it is time for conservatives to counter-attack.

Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi are the worst kind of liars, demagogues, and hypocrites.  That is now a documented reality.  As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi is charged with representing her country more than her party, but from the start she has chosen to demagogue rather than perform her duty.  She should resign.  After launching their vile and despicable attack on Bush officials and Republicans, Democrats need to be held accountable for their deplorable and dishonorable political tactics.

    They are all a bunch of hypocrites living in their palatial glass mansions. The more Pelosi tries to explain, the guiltier she sounds.

    Have you noticed how she is starting to squirm? Now that is LONG OVERDUE.

    Pelosi must go.

    Utterly amazing, she’s STILL lying-

    She says she was told the Bush Adm. was considering using “in the future” only. So that means that she was not told “they (EITs) were being used”.

    But even that is at odds with the CIA memo dated to 9-4-02 that says Pelosi received a “briefing on EITs (enhanced interrogation techniques), including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities and a description of particular EITs that had been employed.”

    Apparently Obama and Pelosi forgot something: the CIA kills people…. it’s in their job description. Did Pelosi think these killers were going to meekly take one for the team, when the team captain is a lying, incompetent, arrogant nebbish with no real-world experience and who told them they need to kiss his ring?

    Pelosi is a Machiavellian, no-talent hack who’s made a lot of enemies. Going to be hard to BS her way out of this one.

    This woman stood before the American people with the American flag behind her back and lied. She had previously lied in demonizing Bush officials etc. as “torturers,” when she had known and approved of the very thing she claimed was so evil.

    She should resign. The Speaker of the House should not be a demagogue. This goes far beyond politics.

    The more that’s revealed to the people, the more “buyer’s remorse” will emerge from the idiots who voted for The One. It’s a bit sick that people are actually swayed by celebrities, talk show hosts and comedians to vote for empty suits with no experience other than street organizing, Chicago politics and ACORN. It might actually be good that 42% (+/-) of eligible voters don’t vote, given they are not smart enough to exercise their vote in the first place. God help this country recover from the storm we face over the next 4 years. Visit us at http://www.DistressedPatriots.US.

    I look at the future, and the past, and I wonder. The Bible describes world worshiping Antichrist as he seems to have all the right ideas. But they keep worshiping him when things go to hell; and they literally curse God. Looking back at the past, I see FDR continuing to receive acclaim from the people even as his policies totally failed and kept the country in a depression for seven years longer than was necessary.

    My faith in America is slipping away. We had the greatest institutions and system in the history of the world, but the people are becoming more and more amoral. The greatest institutions and system in world history don’t mean squat when Supreme Court Justices and presidents and Congress ignore them and replace the Constitution with the next failed Marxist utopia of the future. I truly don’t know if an Obama failure would mean anything more than giving liberals a chance to fail even more and bigger.

    Fortunately, my faith is not in the American people; it is in God my Fortress. “No king but Jesus.”
