Pelosi's Prevarications To Date: A Dramatic Reenactment in 60 Seconds
So Madam Speaker, back in 2003, didn't pretty much everyone on both sides of the Congressional leadership aisle agree that enhanced (and demonstrably life-saving) interrogation techniques were warranted in select cases?
No, of course not. I've always vocally opposed it.
Then why didn't you speak out against it at the time?
I didn't know about it at the time.
You weren't briefed on it?
But here's proof that you were briefed on it.
Well, okay yes I was briefed on it, but it was only presented as a hypothetical. I didn't realize they had been or would actually use such tactics.
But here's proof that you were informed that it was not just a hypothetical, but already historical fact.
Well, okay yes I was "informed" and "told" about it, but that doesn't mean I was "briefed" on it.
... Are you serious?
So, why didn't you speak out against it at the time?
Because it wasn't my place to do so. My job was, um... to win the Congressional majority, so we could change policies years later.
I was fighting a war in Iraq at the time too, you know! I had to save my members!
Yes, the CIA is framing me.
