Pelosi Too busy On The Election To Complain About "Torture"

Republicans Dispute Pelosi's Claim That She Couldn't Stop Interrogation Techniques

This is an article worth reading. Poor Nancy is getting in deeper and deeper on the CIA interrogation issue. The part that caught my eye though was this.

On Thursday, Pelosi protested that when she moved to the top spot in the Democratic caucus, her priorities necessarily changed and a letter of complaint was not her responsibility.

"My job was to change the majority in Congress and to change --- to fight to have a new president because what was happening was not consistent with our values, certainly not true and something that had to be changed. We did that. We have a new president. He says he's going to ban torture," she said.

"But no letter could change the policy," Pelosi said. "It was clear we had to change the leadership of the Congress and the White House. That was my job."

So, she didn't have time to worry about national security, what with an election to concentrate on and all.

I would like to be outraged at this but I can't even pretend anymore. I think the only thing that stuns me is that she appears to believe this is a reasonable explanation.

The only thing that keeps the whole thing reassuring is that with this controversy, Pelosi changes her excuse everyday. So tomorrow will bring a whole new explanation.

That woman is a perfect example of why some animals eat their young. She's deficient in nearly every moral character trait that makes a human likeble.

Disengenuous doesn't even come close to describing that lunatic. Carl Marx must be laughing his ass off as we skate down the primrose path to oblivion.

What a dishonest, hypocritical cur she is, that pathetic excuse is enough for her, but what about the Bush administration trying to keep America safe, somehow to the left, that's just no excuse.

By the way hussein keeps dropping bombs on those pakis and killing lots of people, i don't know of any fair trials or anything that these people were given, can the leftist scum who hated Bush for 'torturing' terrorists at gitmo explain how water boarding is somehow far worse than having a 2 ton bomb being dropped on your head?

So much for Pelosi's commitment to her oath of office. Not a surprise, of course.

Greywolfe, agreed.

MK, they don't have to explain

AOW, she had her fingers crossed behind her back.
