Congressman Steny Hoyer, D-Md. , acknowledge that a hearing is needed to resolve the controversy involving Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s assertions that she wasn’t informed on interrogation techniques used on Abu Zubayda and his al-Qaida cohorts.
Being pressured by the Republicans in the House of Representatives, Hoyer wanted to be transparent to allow the facts to get out. I resent how the Democrats use the typical rhetoric saying that Republicans are trying to distract the American people is outrageous. It is the Democrats who uses diversion and division to confuse the American people and it is very apparent by looking how Obama handles himself in the White House. With constants mistakes by the Democrats in Washington, it is hard to pinpoint an event to attack because it is committed on a daily basis.
In the Associated Press, they wrote:
“A CIA document made public last week shows that Pelosi received a briefing in September 2002 on the tactics used on Abu Zubaydah, an al-Qaida leader and one of three prisoners subjected to waterboarding. Pelosi said she was told the agency was discussing its legal right to use the tactic in the future.”
But recent comments on the record has Pelosi saying, “We were not — I repeat — were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used."
Now, common sense will tell you that Pelosi received the briefing of those enemy prisoners being interrogated by waterboarding and she was okay with it. How does one try to change the dynamics of the report by blatantly stating the untruth? Hey Pelosi! Gotcha!
