Intelligence Report: Pelosi Briefed on Use of Interrogation Tactics in Sept. ’02

May 07, 2009 6:02 PM

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.

Two possibilities:

1) She lied.

2) She’s dumb as a post or senile, and even after sitting through the briefing, genuinely did not know that waterboarding was being used.

Either possibility is sufficient reason to demand she step down as Speaker, for the good of the country, for the good of the House, and, yes, even for the good of her own party.

Pelosi doesn’t know what the truth is, IMO.

I not surprised by pelosi's lies. What I'm surprised about is that someone with the msm is actually doing their job and reporting on it. I feel faint. Catch me before I hit the floor!

Now if they would only shine the light of truth on obama.

It’s not a lie if she is as dumb as a box of rocks, and therefore either didn’t comprehend what she was told then, or doesn’t remember it now.
