    CIA Says Pelosi Was Briefed on Use of 'Enhanced Interrogations'

    By Paul Kane
    Intelligence officials released documents this evening saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was briefed in September 2002 about the use of harsh interrogation tactics against al-Qaeda prisoners, seemingly contradicting her repeated statements over the past 18 months that she was never told that these techniques were actually being used.

    In a 10-page memo outlining an almost seven-year history of classified briefings, intelligence officials said that Pelosi and then-Rep. Porter Goss (R-Fla.) were the first two members of Congress ever briefed on the interrogation tactics. Then the ranking member and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, respectively, Pelosi and Goss were briefed Sept. 4, 2002, one week before the first anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    The memo, issued by the Director of National Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency to Capitol Hill, notes the Pelosi-Goss briefing covered "EITs including the use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah." EIT is an acronym for enhanced interrogation technique. Zubaydah was one of the earliest valuable al-Qaeda members captured and the first to have the controversial tactic known as water boarding used against him.

    The issue of what Pelosi knew and when she knew it has become a matter of heated debate on Capitol Hill. Republicans have accused her of knowing for many years precisely the techniques CIA agents were using in interrogations, and only protesting the tactics when they became public and liberal antiwar activists protested.

    In a carefully worded statement, Pelosi's office said today that she had never been briefed about the use of waterboarding, only that it had been approved by Bush administration lawyers as a legal technique to use in interrogations.

    "As this document shows, the Speaker was briefed only once, in September 2002. The briefers described these techniques, said they were legal, but said that waterboarding had not yet been used," said Brendan Daly, Pelosi's spokesman.

    Pelosi's statement did not address whether she was informed that other harsh techniques were already in use during the Zubaydah interrogations.

    In December 2007 the Washington Post reported that leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees had been briefed in the fall of 2002 about waterboarding -- which simulates drowning -- and other techniques, and that no congressional leaders protested its use. At the time Pelosi said she was not told that waterboarding was being used, a position she stood by repeatedly last month when the Bush-era Justice Department legal documents justifying the interrogation tactics were released by Attorney General Eric Holder.

    The new memo shows that intelligence officials were willing to share the information about waterboarding with only a sharply closed group of people. Three years after the initial Pelosi-Goss briefing, Bush officials still limited interrogation technique briefings to just the chairman and ranking member of the House and Senate intelligence committees, the so-called Gang of Four in the intelligence world.

    In October 2005, CIA officials began briefing other congressional leaders with oversight of the intelligence community, including top appropriators who provided the agency its annual funding. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam and an opponent of torture techniques, was also read into the program at that time even though he did not hold a special committee position overseeing the intelligence community.

    A bipartisan collection of lawmakers have criticized the practice of limiting information to just the "Gang of Four", who were expressly forbidden from talking about the information from other colleagues, including fellow members of the intelligence committees. Pelosi and others are considering reforms that would assure a more open process for all committee members.

    What we have is a newly manufactured 'crisis' devised to keep our minds off real issues. The torture deal, despite some posters' poorly informed opinions has been devised to divert attention from real issues for a while. It's sad but true... :rolleyes:

    I have tried to understand why LIBERALS LIE! Could it be that they are so used to it that they actually believe themselves? By my defination, a lie is a statement made to dilebrately mislead someone. Our Washington bureaucrats, Dems and Rebs. and so-called Independants make a living from lying to us and to one another. According to our mainstream media, if a Liberal says it, it's automatically true. If a Conservative says it, it's immediately condemmed as lies lies lies. From Pres. Bush the first, "read my lips" wasn't a lie when he said it. He really meant it, but later, raised taxes. Bill Cliton ;) said "I did not have sex with that woman." He must have forgotton, but really believed himself. (Is that possible?:confused:) Hillary C was "under a sevier siege when she visited Irac" :eek:but that really didn't happen. Does she really believe it?

    The real question is what do YOU believe when you hear a Liberal speak??

    what your saying is, Q: "How can you tell when a Lib lies?"

    A: "They open their mouth"

    Nothing new here, you could probably count the number of times she has told the truth on one hand.... and still have 4 diggets left over.

    I think we need hearings. It's evident that her mind is slipping. :rolleyes:
    I don't think she's mentally capable to continue her duties as Speaker of the House and potential Commander in Chief. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the laugh Shuttle, I needed that.

    Pony, the possibilities for what the left hand is hiding is almost infinite.
    A good possibility might be the banks. After all, we are now what they were calling the worst-case scenario a few weeks ago. They are trying to say that this is bad but the worst-case scenario would be if we actually have to take total position of all the banks. (evil laugh and rubbing hands together)

    Maybe?

    Imagine that Art, demoted because she fell into her own scheme.

    Some surgeon is in for a realy big malpractice suit. She, as so many liberals, is so acustomed to lying, that she would lie when the truth would do her more good. That is their default position.

    Of course she lies...her lips moved didn't they. These people are devoid of honor. Just as we look to the founding fathers and the constitution for guidance, liberals like Pelosi look to Alinsky and Machiavelli. If our nation is to survive the whole bunch of them have to go.
