Pelosi: Cheney is ‘proud’ of Bush-era CIA that misled public

Posted by CNN's Dana Davidsen

(CNN) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said former Vice President Dick Cheney "set a tone and attitude for the CIA" that allowed for the controversial techniques used by the agency in the Bush-era detention and interrogation program.

Her comments follow a Senate Intelligence Committee vote last week to release key parts of a report that concludes the CIA misled the government and public about aspects of the agency’s practices in the post-9/11 program.

The California Democrat told CNN's Candy Crowley in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union" that Cheney, who served under George W. Bush, is "proud" of what the CIA did during the Republican administration.

"I do believe that during the Bush-Cheney administration, that Vice President Cheney set a tone and an attitude for the CIA. Many people in the CIA are so patriotic, they protect our country in a way to avoid conflict and violence," she said.

"But the attitude that was there was very - I think it came from Dick Cheney. That's what I believe."

Being proud of the CIA under Bush and the CIA or any other government agency under Obama are like the difference between Black and White - figuratively, and literally.

No connection between the two in my opinion.

Pelosi is a psychopath. Anything she says I react the same way as if Charles Manson was saying it. Logic, reason, rational thought does not exist in her mind, so all you can do is just say “Hmm hmm...hmm hmmm...right, OK Nancy”

Yup. I had a feeling that all the lying bullsh*t she’s been doing for Obamadeathcare must have reached it’s limit so she reached into her hag bag and pulled out the ole “blame Bush” trick...

Just when you thing that she can not say anything more mind numbingly stupid than her last statement presto she again proves that you are mistaken.

Just proves that being stupid come naturally to some while deluding themselves by believing that they are superior to others in their intelligence.

Pelosi belongs in prison and the men involved in Enhanced Interrogation need a Presidential Pardon.

When Pelosi speaks there are three possibilities: Misleading or Idiotic or both at the same time.

Democrats are working hard to turn the NSA cyber snooping into a Republican scandal to revive the anti Republican animus of the Bush era.

Feinstein’s people put out that report on the CIA interrogation methods and then publicized it by claiming that the CIA spied on her staff. The truth was that her staff had stolen top secret documents by downloading to them to their computers. And got caught.

Pelosi belongs in prison and the men involved in Enhanced Interrogation should put their skills to good use to
get at the TRUTH.

Ask Biden if he’s proud of the current CIA that is first complicit in the murders of Americans, then lies about it. And continues lying in the face of damning and overwhelming evidence.

Small wonder CNN is headed for the drain.

The Decaying Debutante defies decency , denigrating democratic dogma as docent delivering deniers to the devil.

How? By moving her mouth.

Enough of this witch. Somehow, the medieval burning of witches seems somehow less horrific.

She should be tied to a recliner and tossed in to
SanFrancisco bay to see if she floats.

Good one. Don't forget the weights. Non witches were supposed to float despite being tied and weighted.

I suggest her weights be 3 or more of the "victims" bhe press loves to tout.
