Holding Pelosiís Feet to the Water

"They mislead us all the time," -Nancy Pelosi, 2009

Remember that? Covered here, here, here, and here (I'm sure I missed another dozen posts). The next week in anticipation of her weekly news conference, she avoids the topic and the press lets her off the hook. The press should have hung on to the story like a tenacious pit-bull until she either resigned or the truth outed. Instead, there she still sits...affecting our nation.

Today, Marc Thiessen, in wake of the release of Jose Rodriguez's new book, Hard Measures, holds her feet to the water once again:

In his new book, “Hard Measures,” Rodriguez reveals that he led a CIA briefing of Pelosi, where the techniques being used in the interrogation of senior al-Qaeda facilitator Abu Zubaida were described in detail. Her claim that she was not told about waterboarding at that briefing, he writes, “is untrue.”

“We explained that as a result of the techniques, Abu Zubaydah was compliant and providing good intelligence. We made crystal clear that authorized techniques, including waterboarding, had by then been used on Zubaydah.” Rodriguez writes that he told Pelosi everything, adding, “We held back nothing.”

How did she respond when presented with this information? Rodriguez writes that neither Pelosi nor anyone else in the briefing objected to the techniques being used. Indeed, he notes, when one member of his team described another technique that had been considered but not authorized or used, “Pelosi piped up immediately and said that in her view, use of that technique (which I will not describe) would have been ‘wrong.’ ” She raised no such concern about waterboarding, he writes. “Since she felt free to label one considered-and-rejected technique as wrong,” Rodriguez adds, “we went away with the clear impression that she harbored no such feelings about the ten tactics [including waterboarding] that we told her were in use.”

Yes, she lied, perjured and was NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE. How long do we allow these scum to get away with it? 0bama, pelosi, Holder, Corzine..and on and on and on. When will we see charges for these criminals? There is no justice, no rule of law that applies to “them”.

Just a quick jump over to the kidds at kos and the dummies front page.

Not a word about this at the moment.

They might not even know about this yet, most are just getting up.

I hope to read how they deny this bit of news about plastic Nancy.

Yes, but I saw the restaging of it, too.

In the new version, she's really the hero and fakes her death "for the children."

As long as "we the people" provide them the veil of protection. We have been shamed into accepting the illegal activities of these vermin.
