Nancy Pelosi Should Resign! CIA Memo Confirms She Knew About Waterboarding From The Start!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said last month that she was briefed on waterboarding and enhanced interrogation techniques, but was unaware that the CIA actually used them.

As far as I'm concerned, any member of congress who blatantly lies about national security and intelligence should be impeached, if not tried for treason!

Human Events reports:

She knew from the beginning. According to a CIA document compiled by the Director of National Intelligence summarizing briefings to Congress on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on terrorist detainees, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) knew from the very beginning that those techniques -- including waterboarding -- were being used on September 4, 2002.

According to the memo the very first briefing listed is 9/4/02 with then Rep. Porter Goss & Pelosi. The summary of the briefing says:

“Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed.”

This directly contradicts Pelosi’s story, that “we were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used.”

As HUMAN EVENTS reported earlier, Pelosi - by objecting to the use of the enhanced interrogation techniques - could have stopped them but didn't.

Pelosi's misstatements were apparently intended to divert attention from her and other Democrats in Congress who knew of all the enhanced interrogation methods -- in detail -- apparently as soon as they were being used.

  1. Nancy Polosi, when asked whether she was accusing the CIA of lying to her during a 2002 briefing on the use of so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques," said: "Yes, misleading the Congress of the United States, misleading the Congress of the United States. I am." Here is Nancy Polosi's email contact form to let her know your thoughts on her position.
