Pelosi Accuses CIA of Lying to Her About Waterboarding
Obviously, Nancy Pelosi can’t continue to stick to her story that she was “never told” that the CIA was using waterboarding on a few detained terrorists, now that documents have been released showing that she was briefed on it.
So now she says the CIA lied to her.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today accused the CIA of “misleading” her on the use of harsh interrogation techniques in the fall of 2002, acknowledging for the first time publicly she knew alleged terrorist detainees were subjected to waterboarding more than six years ago.
Pelosi called for the CIA to release detailed portions of her own September 2002 briefing about interrogation techniques, saying that at that time she was told the CIA was not waterboarding detainees. After weeks of sticking to prior statements that she then was never “briefed” about waterboarding’s use, Pelosi today said her top security adviser was part of a briefing in February 2003 in which he learned interrogators were waterboarding terrorists.
Is anyone out there buying her spin?
