Skip to comments.Pelosi Knew about Waterboarding from the Start ( Liar, liar... )
Posted on 05/07/2009 4:23:47 PM PDT by kellynla
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 2, 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.
This directly contradicts Pelosis story, that we were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used.
As HUMAN EVENTS reported earlier, Pelosi - by objecting to the use of the enhanced interrogation techniques - could have stopped them but didn't.
Pelosi's misstatements were apparently intended to divert attention from her and other Democrats in Congress who knew of all the enhanced interrogation methods -- in detail -- apparently as soon as they were being used.
Slapdown on stretchy-P
EIT can’t be much worse than all the plastic surgery and Botox treatments.
This witch will claim it’s a Republican conspiracy and that documents have been altered. She’ll find a way to pin it on Bush, guaranteed.
What a lying piece of plastic
We should call for her resignation.
Yes, Republicans should call for her resignation...she is a liar and slanderer.
She lied about GWB daily for years.
We knew she lied and there it is in black and white. She’ll still lie!
When she heard about waterboarding, she thought it was surfing. She’s from California. It was just an innocent misunderstanding.
She said they weren't told that the techniques WOULD be used.
Based on this document, it appears she was told they HAD been used.
That's all the wiggle room she needs.
” payback to the Dems for driving that bus over the boys at Langley.”
I think you’ve nailed it.
Yep and I think we can count on a steady drip drip drip of info going into the 2010 election that will make the rats look just like a bunch of rats!
Like Bill Clinton, talking about Lewinsky, saying “There IS no sex.” Technically, unless Monica was under the desk at exactly the moment Clinton gave his answer, then he was telling the truth. In his mind, anyway.
No offense, eels.
Saw it on Fox this afternoon. Still waiting for Drudge to post it. Should I hold my breath?
“Still waiting for Drudge to post it?”
I’ve been beating Drudge lately...in fact I think he’s been watching my threads. LOL
Please ask the moderator to put this in the breaking news section where it belongs. Thank you.
I think we should put them in stocks - GM, right after they do their 610 million to 62 billion split.
I am so sick of that word. She lied. The communist bitch lied, period.
It is typical liberal...
I didn;t know, I wasn’t there, I wasn’t informed and guess what folks it works....
Like at Jeramiah Wrights sermons, I had no idea what he was saying so just shut up about it and leave Obama alone.
Like Bill Ayers, I didn’t know about his past and it happened so long ago when I was a kid so just move on and shut up about it.
Like all the nominees that never paid their taxes, and lobbyists Obama said he would never allow to work for him, well Obama didn’t know so just forget about it, get over it and shut up about it.
Earmarks, these don’t count, Obama didn’t do it.
Bad economy, nope not Obama, not even Democrats don’t pay any attention that they were in charge of Congress since this mess started, don’t complain that people warned against the Democrats 2006 midterm CHANGE elections and this is the fruit of their rule, don’t pay attention that it was Obama and the Democrats that approved the bail outs in 2008, it doesn’t count so shut up about it.
Like the Bow to the Saudi King you saw but was told it never happened and then you were told to just shut up about it.
Like the vault copy of a BC that no one will show and you will be told what their truth is and then told to shut up about it.
Like the AIG bonus’ that were approved by the Obama admin and then you were told that Obama was shocked and had no idea about those bonuses so just shut up about it and move along.
Like the AF1 NY terror flyover, it was just a photo op nothing more don’t ask anymore because we told you what it was now shut up about it.
When his wife cathes him in the Oval Office with some freak he’ll just do like Shaggy says...
“SAY IT WASN’T YOU”.
Misstatements? My mommy said that’s just another word for LIES. Nancy’s a liar, Nancy’s a liar, Nancy’s a liar...
She’s always lied about it, she’s still lying about it, and she will continue to lie about it. Even with the proof in black and white, it won’t be reported in mainstream news, there will be no scandal and no investigation. This is the Obama alterverse in which we now live.
Been posted about a billion times now, but I’m thinkin’ I’d never pinged it before. Could be wrong.
Anyway, Pelosi is going to be turned against AIPAC and Israel, and it is going to happen more quickly than one might wish. It’s a little-known, little-used process sometimes called blackmail.

Call it "The Pelosi Method."
That will get some attention and badly needed exposition in the press.
This defense works only when the media decides to stop asking questions, which is what had happened in every case you cite and Speaker Pelosi’s outright lie about this matter is no different. Since the media has failed us so miserably these past years, it is no wonder that so many people are turning to the Internet and forums like the Free Republic (plus Fox News, as the ratings show) to get the information they need.
That is why I refer to them as LIEberals.
BECAUSE THEY LIE!
thanks...just what I needed to see at 4 a.m.
Pelosi should be waterboarded. She’s an ally of the terrorists; she’s the enemy within.
“I am not clear on what prompted this memo to be released, but, one possible reason is payback to the Dems for driving that bus over the boys at Langley. “
I got a $100 that says there is more to come. You should be careful of the toes you step on today, because they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow. Just watch.
Too bad the MSM will bury this.
If PELOSI KNEW then ,certainly,many DEM LEADERS KNEW
You should at least check Breaking News before posting.
OBAMA is THE LIAR IN CHIEF...
The bomb could blow up in his face of croock taking postures
The time stamp has this article out first. The other one needs canned.
They won’t answer to this they can do whatever they want.
Both of these articles have been in breaking since last night.
While it’s important and definitely breaking. . . um. . . yeah.
“We should call for her resignation.”
Moderates,Independents, ALL see she is beyond inadequate
Just think of all the money saved from her private jet trips!
This isn’t news. Pelosi never expected the media to do its job and she thought she could continue lying about her ignorance. She is such a hypocrite.
Saturday Night Live could make money doing Pelosi like they did Palin.They won’t.
She is Arlen Specter in drag.
Think about it, do you ever see them together, heh?
