pelosi making friends at the CIA

She is now calling the CIA people liars, and saying that they misled her. And it's still bushs fault too.

Either all of that is true or she is telling a bold faced whopping lie. Time will tell I suppose.

Quote:
Under strong attack from Republicans, Pelosi accused the CIA and Bush administration of misleading her about waterboarding detainees in the war on terror and sharply rebutted claims she was complicit in its use.

"To the contrary.. we were told explicitly that waterboarding was not being used," she told reporters, referring to a formal CIA briefing she received in the fall of 2002.

Pelosi said she subsequently learned that other lawmakers were told several months later by the CIA about the use of waterboarding.

Personally, I'd like her to blame every stupid fucking decision and statement she's ever made on the CIA. You know... Just to ensure that she will sleep with the fishes.

Of all things political, the CIA is probably the best at CYA. You know damn well they took the time and documentation to have senior house members, DOJ and the presidential administration know what they were doing.

They're all so full of shit it doesn't matter. This is just another distraction for some other bullshit they're planning.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

Pelosi Knew about Waterboarding from the Start

She knew from the beginning. According to a CIA document compiled by the Director of National Intelligence summarizing briefings to Congress on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorist detainees, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) knew from the very beginning that those techniques -- including waterboarding -- were being used on September 4, 2002.

According to the memo the very first briefing listed is 9/4/02 with then Rep. Porter Goss & Pelosi. The summary of the briefing says:

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

...
And for people like gpamp, who will try to slant anyone for using conservative news source, one from ABC

Quote:

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed on the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” on terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah in September 2002, according to a report prepared by the Director of National Intelligence’s office and obtained by ABC News.

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.
This woman is a BOLD FACE LIAR and needs to be under investigation. AP reports that hearings are underway, but I doubt they will lead anywhere. You can follow that report here

Now that one of their own has gotten herself trapped in the shit they'll drop their calls for truth hearings real quick.

The more I think about this the bigger that I believe it will become. Pelosi has put herself into a really bad box with her lie. Panetta came out today with an official statement that the CIA did not lie to her, and the available evidence tends to agree with that statement.

She has to continue with the lie now; her chance to take an alternative path is gone unless she is willing to admit that she lied, and I don't see that happening.

I say let her hang on her own lies. She's a vindictive bitch, turnaround is fair play, and she surely deserves whatever bad things come her way. And there are some republicans that are determined to make this stick.

Mark my words...she will lose her Speaker position. Barry will either tell her, or ask her, to step down. She's fucking up his agenda. He can't play Hitler with her holding up congress. It's a major distraction that he doesn't need. The presidency is caving in on him, and he needs a speaker that is not being constantly scrutinized. She no longer fits the bill.

Thats what makes this situation so special. She's been busting everyone's balls now for awhile and now has no friends when she could really use one. People have long memories and are probably looking forward to her having to eat shit.

Nothing will happen,In the next day or so there will something much bigger in the news to take your mind off her. Britney Spears may slip and fall or something like that.
Pelosi is way to far embedded with our governments controlling body AIPAC. She's not going anywhere. They will make sure of it She's to good with destroying the country.Kill the American family style of life while endorsing faggory,Kill all big industry,Kill the quality of life here, take God away from everyone and destroy American sovereignty. Exactly what they have been doing to all of Western Civilization since Rome. All of Western Europe has been Socialized. Great Britain is 99.9 there, and North America will there in a few years if we don't do something.

As much as I can't stand Pelosi, all that she did was lie. That shit happens every day in politics. John Murtha, on the other hand, needs to be investigated tenfold more than Pelosi is worth investigating.

Which in most cases would happen, but she keeps digging that hole deeper and each day steps up to bigger equipment.

Lying is one thing, but throwing the CIA under the bus just to pass the buck will have shitloads of stuff about her come to light.

If I recall correctly, she was backing John Murtha for House Leader. Steney Hoyer got it instead. Just watch how long it takes him to screw her out of her leadership role. And as a lifelong Democrat, it makes me smile

Hoyer will be the next Speaker. They are big rivals, and the House was split among those two to start with. Hoyer is tight with Emmanuel, and that's bad news for Pelosi...

WASHINGTON - CIA Director Leon Panetta told Congress last month that senior CIA officials have concealed significant actions and misled lawmakers repeatedly since 2001, the chairman and other members of the House Intelligence Committee said in letters revealed Wednesday.

Exactly what actions Panetta disclosed to the House Intelligence Committee on June 24 are unclear, but committee chairman Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, said that the CIA outright lied in one case.

"These notifications have led me to conclude that this committee has been misled, has not been provided full and complete notifications, and (in at least one case) was affirmatively lied to," Reyes wrote in a letter Tuesday to Michigan Rep. Peter Hoekstra, the committee's senior Republican. A copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press.

Investigation being considered
Reyes said in the letter that he is considering launching a full investigation.

Panetta brought the matters to the committee's attention, CIA spokesman George Little said Wednesday.

"It is not the policy or practice of the CIA to mislead Congress. This agency and this director believe it is vital to keep the Congress fully and currently informed. Director Panetta's actions back that up," Little said in a statement to the AP. "It was the CIA itself that took the initiative to notify the oversight committees."

Seven Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee sent a letter to Panetta on June 26 asking that in light of his disclosure he revise a statement he made in May to CIA employees that it was not CIA policy or practice to mislead Congress.

The cryptic letter and CIA statement came on the eve of a House debate on an intelligence bill. The debate is expected to revive a partisan argument that has raged on and off for months about whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew in the fall of 2002 about the CIA's use of waterboarding weeks earlier.

Waterboarding is an interrogation technique the CIA used on three prisoners in 2002 and 2003. It is a form of simulated drowning that President Barack Obama has called torture.

Did the CIA lie to Pelosi?
Congressional aides expect much of the debate on the House intelligence bill to be diverted into a discussion of what Pelosi knew about the CIA's harsh interrogation program and why, if she was briefed on it, she didn't formally object to it.

Pelosi told reporters in May she had not been informed that waterboarding had been used against terrorism suspects, even though it had been. When asked whether she was accusing the CIA of lying to her, she said, "Yes."

The CIA sent lawmakers a chart in May describing the 40 congressional briefings it gave on the interrogation techniques. But that document was found to include several errors, leaving in question exactly what Pelosi was told.

The GOP seized on her accusation that the CIA misled Congress, contending that the California Democrat's remarks have demoralized the intelligence community. House Republicans have repeatedly demanded that a bipartisan panel investigate her allegations.

Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., one of the authors of the June 26 letter to Panetta, said the June revelation to the committee bolsters Pelosi's case.

"If people are saying, 'Heaven forbid the speaker said the CIA deceived Congress' — anyone who has served any time on these committees and is straightforward will say, 'Yes, of course,'" Holt told the AP.

Concerns about compromising security
House Republicans oppose at least one provision in the intelligence authorization bill, and they have an unusual ally: the White House.

Obama's aides have said they will recommend he veto the bill if it includes a Democratic-written provision requiring the president to notify the intelligence committees in their entirety about covert CIA activities.
