Pelosi’s Lies About Interrogation

by Andrew C. McCarthy

At the Washington Post, Marc Thiessen has a great column recalling former House speaker Nancy Pelosi’s vehement denials that she was informed, in real time, that the CIA was waterboarding top al Qaeda captives — and the fact that those denials were flat-out lies. Marc details the disclosures in an explosive new book, Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives, by former CIA counterterrorism chief Jose A. Rodriguez Jr., who personally briefed Pelosi on the matter. Worth reading Marc’s post and Mr. Rodriguez’s book, though it would be worth even more to hold Representative Pelosi to account.
