Declassified Central Intelligence Agency documents show Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi knew seven years ago that we were torturing detainees.
Shouldn’t surprise anyone. Pelosi is, always has been and always will be, a liar.
The daughter of one of the most corrupt mayors of Baltimore — a city known for spawning fast-talking con artists — claims she was only told that such tactics were under consideration.
Not true says the CIA. She was told the "aggressive interrogation tactics" were in use.
Which may explain why Pelosi wouldn’t let Democrats in the House impeach George W. Bush. She was a co-conspirator in the Bush Administration’s shredding of the Constitution and total abandonment of the freedoms that once defined this country.
Which also explains why nothing really changes in Washington. All we do is replace one set of crooks with another.
Pelosi proved her true colors when she tried to force Democrats to elect the equally-corrupt John Murtha as her second-in-command for the House. Murtha never met a bribe he couldn’t take.
Her control of the House matched the election of Nevada Casino bag man Harry Reid as majority leader of the Senate — a move that kept Congress bought and sold by big money special interests.
So why should we be surprised that Pelosi not only knew we were torturing prisoners: She kept her mouth shut and allowed the abuse to continue?
If members of the Bush Administration must be prosecuted for breaking the law with the torture of prisoners, then Pelosi should be charged as well. Her silence makes her a guilty as Bush, Cheney and all the others.
Pelosi, Reid and the party of the Jackass are dirty. Congress is still controlled by corruption and deceit.
