DUmmies Blast Pelosi As A Liar
Intelligence Report: Pelosi Briefed on Use of Interrogation Tactics in Sept. ’02
[Intelligence Report: Pelosi LIED!!!]
ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed on the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” on terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah in September 2002, according to a report prepared by the Director of National Intelligence’s office and obtained by ABC News.
The report, submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee and other Capitol Hill officials Wednesday, appears to contradict Pelosi’s statement last month that she was never told about the use of waterboarding or other special interrogation tactics. Instead, she has said, she was told only that the Bush administration had legal opinions that would have supported the use of such techniques.
The report details a Sept. 4, 2002 meeting between intelligence officials and Pelosi, then-House intelligence committee chairman Porter Goss, and two aides. At the time, Pelosi was the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee.
The meeting is described as a “Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of particular EITs that had been employed.”
[And lots of other Democrats were also briefed, including Senator Jay Rockefeller, but not a peep of protest from them. Deal with it, DUmmies.]
Pelosi is not a fool. She knew perfectly well what was going on.
[Yup, and so did all those other Democrats... p.s. Skinner, I thought we had a nice little chat about removing the new format where I needed to copy and paste DUmmie posts twice. I even publicly thanked you for that removal but now you have reverted to it. This makes my DUFUing job much more difficult. Therefore, to facilitate my DUFUing, I am once again asking you to return to the original DUmmie format where I was able to copy an entire DUmmie post in one quick mouse sweep highlight. Thanx in advance for your cooperation.]
She probably asked if they could "rendition" the homeless in Pacific Heights...
[...And overfeed them with orange glazed chicken and rice pilaf while brutalizing them with air conditioning.]
The woman is evil. But, well, the people of San Francisco love her. I don't love the people of San Francisco. I will never go there again, will never support their businesses again. I look at labels now. Anything from San Francisco is put back on the shelf. My sanctions against an evil empire. Run by an evil Empress. All of this just makes me so ill. They all are complicit in all of it. Obama condemns it. And yet has done nothing to change the policies that allow it. Present tense. Allows it.
[Then you better boycott West Virginia also because Senator Jay Rockefeller also knew all about water boarding.]
Ok, any lawyers out there? What I would like to understand is this, was Pelosi in a position to consult with an attorney prior to/after the briefing? Was she and the others bound by any law not to disclose the information?
[Nancy! Call 1-800-SHYSTER before all water boarding briefings.]
She has Congressional Immunity for any use of classified information. Could NOT be prosecuted. he worst they could do to her would be to cut off further classified briefings. She was perfectly free to demand a halt to torture and disclose this and other classified information, such as the warrantless wiretapping Program, that she was aware of years before it was made known to the public. Pelosi certainly had a moral and a legal right to step up and let the rest of us know about this. But, she failed in that duty.
[To be able to go after all those EVIL Republicans, you must also be willing to sacrifice a lot of Democrats who were also in the know. Somehow I don't think that will be happening.]
The point is she knew about the techniques. And the policies that allowed them to be used.
[Pelosi knew. Jay Rockefeller knew. LOTS of Democrats knew.]
I Don't Care Why Nancy Leaves Public Office, As Long As She Goes and she can take that empty table with her.
[Can she also take her Botox bottle with her?]
Pelosi was only one of the Congressional leaders briefed on this program. She does bear some responsibility just as they all do. The 110th will always be the Torture Congress as far as I'm concerned.
[Which is why you can't prosecute EVIL Republicans without also sacrificing lots of Democrats.]
It's really past time for Americans stop focusing on Party and start focusing on their country or even their own self interest. We're being robbed blind by our government--and not only us. Several generations of our descendants are indebted, well before their grandpappies are gleams in anyone's eye. They are also robbing other countries blind. In our name, with our money, it' been making enemies for us who want to kill us, though we never met them and never will. And our kids and grandkids. It still is, with wars, maybe rendition, and refusal to investigate or prosecute for atrocities. They're raping the planet. Water, air, minerals, fish, wildlife, public lands, everything. Gone or going fast. Including our Constituion and laws. Meanwhile, they are becoming billionairs on our backs and those of our descendants. And we are magpies, distracted by every little thing. It does not even have to be shiny. I'm ready to dump every one of them and start over.
[You left out the part about how they're also causing the ruination of the entire galaxy.]
We have a long and sordid history of illegal, unethical, and immoral behavior.
[We need to emulate the human rights records of North Korea and Cuba.]
We have become complacent and so we have lost sight of the principles this country was founded on. And that is why we are a falling empire.
[Which first arose during an Olympic Hockey game in 1980 to shouts of "USA! USA! USA!"]
If she knew, Pelosi needs to be flushed, right along with all the repukes who created this stench. And any other Dems who passively sat by and acquiesced... flush them too. Whatever it takes.
[Which is why you won't see that flush handle used.]
This is why Obama doesn't wana prosecute. Many colleagues in league with torture.
[Unless he is so bold as to ONLY prosecute Republicans and then try to claim the investigations are non-political.]
Someone commented about how things have changed with Obama. Usually the presidents make the money with the books after they leave the White House. He made the money with the books before the White House. $2.7 million. And more pouring in every day. And he likes it. So does Michelle. That's really the problem. As always, the money. It corrupts it all. That's how the Republicrats recruit. They wave the money around.
[GASP! You dare question the integrity of the mighty OZbama!!!]
