I watched her press conference today and she's a liar. She's gone from "I was never briefed about torture interrogation techniques" to "Well, I was briefed once and waterboarding only came up as a potential technique."
I'm sorry but I feel she's lying. The briefing took place back in 2002 when I think 9/11 was on everyone's mind and back then most people thought that being rough with terror suspects was okay. Now that it's 2009 and so many people are going back to that naive, let's sing kumbaya, and apologize for everything and they'll like us mentality, now it's an issue.
It seems (to me) to be the same thing that happened with the AIG bonuses. Congress had no issues with it until the American public found out and now there's all this outrage. Same case here b/c I believe that if people weren't throwing a fit over it and calling for investigations and such, she wouldn't have a problem with it.
I loved her "we were misled on the info with Iraq." Hmm, same info that Bush had was the same info that Clinton had to go after Sadaam so what was the problem?? Pelosi just can't stand Bush b/c he refused to play her way and now she's doing everything she can to get even.
