American Torture

 Pelosi and Reid

Ok, Now we learn those democratic son of a bitches in Congress have been supporting torture all along. So our American government is becoming (or still is) a torture nation. Not only outside of America but inside America as well. Now we learn that Congress was briefed on Waterboarding in 2002. OMG, we also learn that in meetings, the spy panels' chiefs did not protest.

Yes, the Washington Post is exposing the Democrats and Republicans for who they really are. You know those rodents that we can't stand.

WaPo reports: 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. More HERE

Did Bush approve CIA leak to embarrass Pelosi?

Well that is the question asked byJohn Aravosis ·at AMERICAblog (H/T MakeThemAccountable.com) John says: Sure looks that way. [Sunday’s] Washington Post reports that Pelosi was briefed about the CIA's waterboarding in 2002 and raised no objections… [R]emember, it took place in the first year after September 11 - Bush and the Republicans would have leaked [an objection] to the public (like they just did) and destroyed her career and marked her publicly as a traitor. No member of Congress, no American, could have spoken up about anything in the months after September 11 and survived… I hope this teaches Pelosi and Reid and all the Democrats that no matter what you do, this administration will mark you as a traitor and try to … destroy you. You might as well fight back and try to win, because if you don't, you'll sit back and lose.
