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 agencys 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."

Pelosi is proud of the 0bama-era “President” who misleads the public.
So I’m to trust Pelosi as regards what Cheney thinks? This, from the b!tch who told us we need to pass the bill to find out what it says? No thanks
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.
I get it, Dems will be running against Bush in 2014.Nice try toots, but you lead the way in misleading the public.
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...
Wish they would use them on you, you dumb b***h!
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.
And she is proud of today’s IRS, TSA, EPA, etc...So what’s the point of this drivel?
Yes I do!!
Pelosi belongs in prison and the men involved in Enhanced Interrogation need a Presidential Pardon.
This heinous beyotch is always full of accusations. Low down demagoging sack of shyte. Her farther was the hack mayor of Baltimore. This is where she learned her trade
Demagoguery is the Democrat stock in trade. Can only be done with the compliant collaborative media
When Pelosi speaks there are three possibilities: Misleading or Idiotic or both at the same time.
The lies about Cheney worked so she’s digging up the tactic again. She’s a witch.
The lying hag attempts to obfuscate by yelling.........SQUIRREL!
