    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed in September 2002 on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques, according to a report prepared by the Director of National Intelligence's office and obtained by FOX News.

    The report seems to contradict a statement by Pelosi last month that she was never told that waterboarding or other enhanced interrogation techniques were being used on terrorism suspects.

    The report was submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee and federal officials Wednesday.

    Brendan Daly, a spokesman for Pelosi, said the speaker was under the impression the techniques were legal and waterboarding was not used.

    "As this document shows, the speaker was briefed only once, in September 2002," he said. "The briefers described these techniques, said they were legal, but said that waterboarding had not yet been used."

    People's memories are short.

    They knew. Pelosi knew.
    They keep their silence regarding when and what they knew, when they know it will serve their purposes and opportunities at a later date.

    Since Pelosi knew and did nothing to object or report should she be on the list of those who could be prosecuted?

    Rev, I think you are dreaming. Even if she were tried, she could evade prosecution by pleading mental impairment.:thumbs:

    If we prosecute, then yes. Justice knows no party.

    I am dead serious. If the Justice Department presses charges, then they should do so for all involved.

    You said: "Justice knows no party."

    There is a vast difference between what Justice should be or do and what Justice is!:BangHead::BangHead:

    The American justice system at times knows little about true justice, unfortunately.

    Padredurand answered that question in the other thread that you are referring to. See his post #56 in that thread.

    I will copy it here for you.

    "Water torture techniques used during WWII are much different than waterboarding. Water torture, as cited earlier, introduced water through the nose or mouth through hoses, tubes or submersion which could cause actual drowning. In waterboarding, as practiced now, and as cited earlier, the face of the individual is covered with plastic or cloth and water is poured over the person's head. The recipient does not have water being forced into the respritory system but experiences the full sensation of drowning.

    There is a fundamental difference between actually drowning and simulated drowning."

    There won't be any charges.

    Against anybody. At all.

    There may not be any charges in court where the defendants could mount a defense but there will be plenty in the democrat Congressional hearings. These thugs vehemently hate President Bush.
