Nancy Pelosi Backpedals on CIA Criticism; Blames Bush for Misleading Her on Waterboarding

May 16, 2009




When Nancy Pelosi spoke last she threw the CIA under the bus and basically said that the CIA was lying and that she was misled by the CIA. Her words were pretty clear, it was obvious what she meant.

  Now Nancy Pelosi has changed her story again. I have lost count on how many stories that she has had on the issue of waterboarding and what she knew and for how long she has known it. She has had at least four stories, I think it is more likely five. Nancy Pelosi is now claiming that it wasn’t the CIA who misled her, it was the Bush administration.

My criticism of the manner in which the Bush Administration did not appropriately inform Congress is separate from my respect for those in the intelligence community who work to keep our country safe

   She is backpedalling on her comments from just one day ago. She has returned to the old reliable blame Bush argument that the Democrats are so fond of. She has infuriated the people at the CIA and now she is trying to spin this, but she has been in spin mode on this issue for so long that she is getting dizzy and she has no idea where she started and she certainly has no idea where she is going to end up.

  Every time that Nancy Pelosi opens her mouth there is a new story coming out. I would feel sorry for her if she hadn’t spent the last four years bashing the people who have kept America safe.

  The more that Nancy Pelosi talks and the more that she tries to spin this issue the worse that it gets for her. She has turned into an embarrassment. Somebody in the Democrat party needs to take her aside and tell her to stop talking.

  It is time for her to either step down or shut up. I would prefer that she did both.

    I don’t see a lot of Dems stepping up and defending her. I think they’re letting her twist in the wind, and she will lose that speaker position pretty soon.

      That is a good point. Where are all the Dems defending her? They know that this is a losing issue and they are distancing themselves. It is interesting though because whenever a Dem gets in trouble with the law they rally around them no matter what the crime but in this instance the silence is deafening.

    Pelosi is an embarrassment. She should step down now.

    You might find my post interesting today. I was watching Fox news when a commentator made a comment about a possible third reason for people not stepping up and defending her. A very plausible one I might add.
