Dems Wage Campaign Against CIA to Cover For Liar Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi was reportedly told in February 2003 by her intelligence aide, Michael Sheehy, that waterboarding was used on CIA terror detainee Abu Zubaydah.
She later lied about it and said she did not know that the Al-Qaeda terrorists had been waterboarded.
Then at her next press conference in May the Speaker said the CIA were the liars, not her.
Today Dems continued their attacks on the CIA to cover Speaker Pelosi’s a$$.
FOX News reported:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she expects Democrats who have accused senior CIA officials of repeatedly misleading Congress to further pursue the allegations.
“I’ve seen the letters from the members and obviously they have concern,” Pelosi said about the letters written by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee and revealed Wednesday.
In the letters, Democrats said that CIA Director Leon Panetta told Congress last month that senior CIA officials have concealed significant actions and misled lawmakers repeatedly since 2001.
“The Intelligence Committee has the oversight responsibility for intelligence in the House and its equivalent committee in the Senate,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. “I’m sure they will be pursuing this in their regular committee process and that’s the way it will go.”
But Republicans say the allegations are just political maneuvering to protect Pelosi, who has been under constant fire since alleging that the CIA lied to her about enhanced interrogation techniques.
Legal Insurrection reported that Panetta’s testimony hurt Pelosi.
