Here’s what San Fran Nan had to say about whether or not she knew about waterboarding being used:
“In that or any other briefing . . . we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used,” Pelosi said at a news conference in April. “What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel . . . opinions that they could be used, but not that they would.”
Here’s the problem: She’s a dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking liar.
Her spokesman says that the newly released memo backs up Nan’s claim that she was only briefed once. And so it does. Just how many times did the government need to remind Nan? Is she that forgetful? Should the meeting have been followed with weekly calls from the President saying, “Hey Nan, remember that thing we talked about? Yeah, well, we’re still doing it.”
San Fran Nan still contends that when she was told about waterboarding she was told that it might be used, not that it had been used.
From the actual report of the meeting:
“Briefing on EITs including use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been (emphasis mine) employed.”
The worst kind of liar. She lied about national security to score political points.
