Being a retired military officer, I fully believe in using waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques to get critical information from terrorists to protect our country. I do not endorse beheading people or other dangerous life-threatening techniques that are used by the Muslim terrorists.
I fully believe that Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew about the CIA plans and "lied" about what she knew. In order to get to the truth, she should be waterboarded and within 10 seconds we will have her answer since I believe that she cannot take any pressure. Liberal politicians like Speaker Pelosi can talk a good game, but when it comes to protecting their county at their expense, they are gutless.
A Director of National Intelligence report on congressional briefings about enhanced interrogation techniques conflicts with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's claim that she was never told that waterboarding would be used on terror suspects. The report, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, indicates that a classified CIA briefing of Mrs. Pelosi included specific details of the use of "enhanced interrogation techniques," or EITs, on terrorism suspect Abu Zubaydah.
"Briefing on EITs included use of EITs on Abu Zubaydah, background on authorities, and a description of the particular EITs that had been employed," the report said of the Sept. 4, 2002, briefing.
Mrs. Pelosi maintains that in the September 2002 classified briefing on CIA techniques, she was told that the agency considered waterboarding to be legal but was never told of any intention to use the technique. The CIA says that she is not telling the truth.
Maybe the CIA can snatch Ms. Pelosi and take her on a secret trip to an undisclosed location and get her to tell the truth. As a member of Congress, she fully deserves this type of treatment.
