The House on Thursday rejected a Republican call for a special investigation into whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi was told in September 2002 that the C.I.A. was subjecting terror suspects to waterboarding.

On a mainly party line vote of 252 to 172, Democrats upheld a ruling that a request for a special panel to look into the conflicting accounts of Ms. Pelosi and the intelligence community did not merit special treatment, but should be proposed as regular legislation.

I really think the wash compost and nytimes are on Obama’s and the marxist dems payroll. The break stories that are in Obama’s campaign of lies.

Actually, I’d rather have them stalling stalwart Republican attempts calling them to task for assinine behavior rather than actually enacting something our asshole-in-chief (hey, I coined a new acronym - AINC) can sign....

It just confirms what was only suspected, Elected officials can’t perform special investigation due to the fact that they are so used to lying that it would be a waste of tax payers money and would no know the truth if it kicked their teeth out.

If the CIA lied to Congress as the Speaker of the House has asserted, then congress must investigate them. Why are the Democrats now refusing to hold the agency accountable for misleading America’s elected representatives?

Congress has an obligation to hold the CIA accountable for this outrageous offense.
