Just saw the Press Conference with Nancy Pelosi denying for the ** FOURTH TIME ** (Count ‘Em — Four!) that she knew anything about waterboarding.
Liar, liar, pants on fire . . .
She fumbled, stumbled, and bumbled her way through the Press Conference, and the reporters smelled blood early. When she took questions, they shouted over each other, screaming each other down like a bad 1940’s film noir. Pelosi’s eyes blinked like a trapped deer in the headlights as she wiped away stray perspiration on her botox-flattened forehead.
Even I almost felt sorry for her. Almost.
Then she made a fatal mistake. She accused the CIA of lying!
WASHINGTON- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has stepped up Democrats’ calls to form a torture “truth commission,” urging President Obama not to give immunity to anyone who illegally abused terror thugs.
Pelosi on Wednesday seized on Obama’s openness to prosecuting top Bush administration lawyers who formulated policies to strip, slap, shove and waterboard detainees said to be among Al Qaeda’s worst in U.S. custody after 9/11.
“It gives further impetus among members to have some kind of truth commission as to what happened,” Pelosi said. “I do not think immunity should be granted to everyone in a blanket way,” she added.
Complicating matters was the disclosure that the CIA used waterboarding – which simulates drowning – on 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed 183 times. But ex-CIA Director Michael Hayden claimed at a congressional hearing last year that the practice ceased within a week of Mohammed’s March 1, 2003, capture. CIA officials could not explain the seeming discrepancy.
. . . Hanging on a telephone wire . . .
Actually, I’m very much in favor of a Truth Commission. What did Nancy Pelosi know, and when did she know it?
Does she NOT KNOW that these Congressional Hearings with the CIA are transcribed by stenographers and copious records are kept at Langley OF WHO SAID WHAT, WHO ASKED WHAT QUESTION, AND WHO ATTENDED?
