MSNBC isn’t buying her (complete jumble of a) spin. (Just now … on interrogation.)
Here’s how CNN writes it up:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused CIA officials
Thursday of misleading her in 2002 on the use of “enhanced interrogation
techniques” such as waterboarding, which simulates drowning and has been
described by critics as torture.
Pelosi reiterated an earlier claim that she was briefed on such
techniques only once — in September of 2002 — and that she was told at the
time that the techniques were not being used.
A recently released Justice Department memo says that the CIA used
waterboarding at least 83 times in August 2002 in the interrogation of Abu
Zubaydah, a suspected al Qaeda leader imprisoned at U.S. facilities in
“Throughout my career, I am proud to have worked on human rights and
against torture,” Pelosi said in a prepared statement.
“I unequivocally oppose the use of torture.”
