CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'
By Paul Kane
Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used.

She's sticking with her story though that they only said it was on the table, not that they had already used it. That begs the question though and makes me wonder why Maddow et al never follow up with, "well if they had said it already had been done why didn't you raise any objections and if it was only on the menue for future interogations then why didn't you raise any objections or register any formal complaints to the appropriate office(s)?"
The answer is clear to me. Back in those days when most everyone thought more attacks were coming and when we had top Al Queada planners in custody, everyone thought getting intelligence trumped all, including the hypocrite Pelosi. I guess that makes her a modern day "Nazi"??
An interesting and suprising note taken from Morning Joe this morning. Democrat Harold Ford agrees that it was the prevailing thought back then and is thankful we never were attacked again.

1. If she was briefed that they WERE using this technique, the briefing was classified and she and other members of congress couldn't do anything about this.
2. If she is being honest about being briefed on the technique and not the fact that they were actually doing it, the administration is to blame.
by "Hanging" Pelosi, you are indicting Bush and Cheney also.[/QUOTE]
She was briefed that it HAD occurred. And everyone, all 60, both Reps and Dems were aware and had no complaints. Including Pelosi. Only one year after 9/11 everyone agreed with the techniques used to protect the American people.
Stop trying to protect a professional con-woman.
The technique was necessary and saved many American lives.
Is it necessary today. No. Was it necessary in 2002, yes.
Why not direct all the vitriol towards the terrorists?
