Default Pelosi Knew about Waterboarding from the Start

Pelosi Knew about Waterboarding from the Start
by Jed Babbin
05/07/2009


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 2, 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.

Of course she did! This is just like the bonus money that everyone in Washington knew about for 6 months but Obama pretended that HE didn't when the money was actually paid out. Perlosi was for the war, then against the war, then for the war, then against the war...I think she's for it today, but the wind shifted, so....who knows?

She knew, was fine with it until the political wind shifted and then, well, time to flop like a fish...

For the record, we use waterboarding on our own people in training. Every pilot has to go to POW training (forget what they actually call it) and waterboarding is one of the techniques used. It is sanctioned by the powers that be (CMC, etc). This school is HARD CORE! But it is necessary.

The main thing is that it is only effective in the first 72 hours. After that, "soft tactics" must be used. Example: make the subject the thirstiest SOB on the planet and go in drinking a glass of water. Stuff like that.

It becomes an issue when a subject has been waterboarded 226 times. That is an example of someone just getting their rocks off. Which, if they're confident the dude has ties to terrorism, I am not opposed to.

Are you referring to SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) school? I believe that Pilots in all services, as well as Special Forces and other select exceptional programs are required it...and you're right, it is hard core.

Pelosi is the scariest politician blowing hot air today. I can't believe she is continually elected.

She knew, they all knew.

The only difference between her and obama, is her lies don't come from a teleprompter.
