The Crucifixon Of George W. Bush

Love him or hate him George Bush kept this country safe after 911. There was not one documented attack. This is irrefutable. I know of two he had thwarted. One at JFK and the other at Fort Dix.
There were others, but you have to look hard, because the media likes to bury it.

Now as a reward for keeping our country safe the Obama administration (with the inducement of Pelosi) wants to bring criminal charges against Bush and his advisers for using harsh interrogation techniques mainly water boarding.

"Were going to go to where the truth takes us" Obama said. Where was that same logic when Geithner and everyone of his appointee's got caught cheating on their taxes?

As I have stated before the Democrats preoccupation with the way these prisoners are treated never fails to fascinate me. Personally, as far as I'm concerned, you could take Khalid Sheik Mohammed and the rest of his cohorts, cut their balls off and shove them down their throats!

This was Pelosi's original statement in the Washington Post

Pelosi Denies Knowing Interrogation Techniques Were Used

By Paul Kane

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) today said congressional leaders were never briefed about the use of an enhanced interrogation practice, rejecting GOP claims that leadership was aware of the controversial tactics by late 2002.

Pelosi said the select few lawmakers who were briefed about handling of detainees from the war on terror, were then forbidden from discussing what they had learned with their colleagues. This produced an environment in which the top lawmakers were told of the existence of legal opinions supporting the rationale for waterboarding detainees, but never told that it was actually being used, according to Pelosi.

"Flat out, they never briefed us that this was happening," she said.


You lying f-ing bitch!

This is the Washington Post article that (to use her term) caught her... in a flat out lie.

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.

"The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough," said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.

Congressional leaders from both parties would later seize on waterboarding as a symbol of the worst excesses of the Bush administration's counterterrorism effort. The CIA last week admitted that videotape of an interrogation of one of the waterboarded detainees was destroyed in 2005 against the advice of Justice Department and White House officials, provoking allegations that its actions were illegal and the destruction was a coverup.

Yet long before "waterboarding" entered the public discourse, the CIA gave key legislative overseers about 30 private briefings, some of which included descriptions of that technique and other harsh interrogation methods, according to interviews with multiple U.S. officials with firsthand knowledge.

With one known exception, no formal objections were raised by the lawmakers briefed about the harsh methods during the two years in which waterboarding was employed, from 2002 to 2003, said Democrats and Republicans with direct knowledge of the matter. The lawmakers who held oversight roles during the period included Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) and John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), as well as Rep. Porter J. Goss (R-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan).

Individual lawmakers' recollections of the early briefings varied dramatically, but officials present during the meetings described the reaction as mostly quiet acquiescence, if not outright support. "Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing," said Goss, who chaired the House intelligence committee from 1997 to 2004 and then served as CIA director from 2004 to 2006. "And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement."

Congressional officials say the groups' ability to challenge the practices was hampered by strict rules of secrecy that prohibited them from being able to take notes or consult legal experts or members of their own staffs. And while various officials have described the briefings as detailed and graphic, it is unclear precisely what members were told about waterboarding and how it is conducted. Several officials familiar with the briefings also recalled that the meetings were marked by an atmosphere of deep concern about the possibility of an imminent terrorist attack.

"In fairness, the environment was different then because we were closer to Sept. 11 and people were still in a panic," said one U.S. official present during the early briefings. "But there was no objecting, no hand-wringing. The attitude was, 'We don't care what you do to those guys as long as you get the information you need to protect the American people.' "


After being given an hour long briefing in 2002 where she and three others were told of the waterboarding and given a tour of the detention facility she now states this.

“Well…But the CIA didn’t tell me they would really use it!"

Remember Clinton.... what does.... is mean? Now we have... what does.... know mean!

This has the same ring of truth and sincerity to it as a guy sitting in a church for 20 years, married by the worthless waste of skin pastor, having your children baptized by that pastor, listening to the sermons of that pastor of inaccurate lies of hate filled rants against America. Then have the balls to claim you knew nothing about it!!!

By the way, I seem to remember a president pointing his finger while lying to 300 million people on national television. Whatever happened to him? Oh..I remember now. He's the one whose wife ran for president after dodging bullets in Bosnia.

This is nothing more then a diversion to keep America's eyes off the real problem. America is broke. In more ways then one!

Pelosi knew.. now she is lying.

As Speaker of the House, one would think that when the issue of interrogation was brought up in one of these super-secret national security meetings, that she would have asked what those methods were if she were so concerned.

So either she is lying or she is completely incompetent as a public leader.
