It’s been known at least since the WAPO reported it in 2007, but in the face of continued denials by the Speaker of the House, ABC News is out with the definitive report (by the NSC) that Nancy Pelosi was briefed on waterboarding and other fun interrogation taqctics back in 2002 and didn’t object to their use. Why do you think that Obama isn’t going after the Bush lawyers who wrote legal memos on the legality of such techniques? Out of a deep concern that filing criminal charges against White House legal advisors would impede their usefulness in the future and create a never-ending witch hunt every time administrations changed? Ha ha ha.
You just can’t file criminal charges against your own party’s Speaker – it’s unseemly.
