Waterboarding Nancy Pelosi

So it turns out the current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was briefed by the CIA on its enhanced interrogation techniques way back in 2002. And just how descriptive that briefing was n the technique of waterboarding, which people ranging from President Obama to his 2008 Republican rival John McCain have called torture?

What is it with the flags and pearls? We seen this look before. This is fast turning into a “What did she know and when did she know it?” moment among Democratic critics of those techniques. Nancy wants a truth commission. Her critics just want the truth.

Nancy wasn’t House Speaker back in 2002. But she did use her anti-Bush credentials to propel herself into the Speakership in the 2006 election. LBOTC has long regarded Nancy as a just another do nothing politician (still waiting for your budget, Nancy). So we find the charge that she was briefed on torture techniques and did nothing inherently believable.

We can think of one way to get to the bottom of this. Waterboard Nancy Pelosi!
