Pelosi claims CIA “misled” her

Pelosi TortureIn a yet another tortured explanation of what she knew, and when she knew it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now claims that she was “misled” by the CIA regarding the use of enhanced interrogation techniques.

“They misled us every step of the way.”

In a just concluded press conference, Ms. Pelosi stopped short of calling the CIA briefers “liars”, but the distinction was one of semantics only.

Calling for a “Truth Commission,” Pelosi attempted to tie the CIA interrogation briefings to later briefings by the Bush Administration regarding WMD’s in the run-up to Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Her twisted explanation  only serves to make the torture debate less about enhanced interrogation techniques and embarrassing the Bush Administration, and more about Nancy Pelosi’s credibility.

Playing the victim card is an extraordinary response, especially for the person who is third in line of Presidential Succession.

  1. WATCH THE NANCY PELOSI NOSE GROW – body language tells all. Wish someone can do body language reading on television….she is a liar and needs to Go!!!!!!”Duh I was there and I agreed to waterboarding but I don’t agree now”. Maybe she can say she did not listen? Like I did not inhale…..Can’t take it back Nancy…

  2. This is position number six on this issue.
    She has already felt the sting of the CIA once, expect the next one to leave a mark. Panetta can’t help her.
    She is done, and soon to be bowled over by that big ol’bus.

  3. she is in a box. Playing politics with the CIA is unhealthy for the country, and will prove to be hazardous to her career.

  4. “I wasn’t briefed, I was informed that somebody else had been briefed about it,” she said.

    Word games. Lying bitch knew all along.

  5. Of course she knew. All of this happened before Howard Dean poisoned the well with his anti-war Presidential campaign in 2003.

    Chuck Schumer knew too.

  6. Well, it certainly makes her look like more of a liar (if you think she is lying) or stupider (if you think that she genuinely didn’t understand the briefings) by the minute.

    I’ll be gracious. I believe that she really IS stupid but I think she’s a liar as well.

  7. I’m no body language expert, but I do make a living in sales, and I have to be able to read people.

    Her behavior did not support her words. She was nervous, rambling, and defensive.

    I think she was lying through her teeth.

    But she’s dumber than dirt also.

    It’s a tough call.
