And welcome to the club.
He doesn’t name any names but there’s no question who he’s aiming at.
Today, I am slack-jawed to read that members claim to have not understood that the techniques on which they were briefed were to actually be employed; or that specific techniques such as “waterboarding” were never mentioned. It must be hard for most Americans of common sense to imagine how a member of Congress can forget being told about the interrogations of Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. In that case, though, perhaps it is not amnesia but political expedience.
Let me be clear. It is my recollection that:
– The chairs and the ranking minority members of the House and
Senate intelligence committees, known as the Gang of Four,
were briefed that the CIA was holding and interrogating
– We understood what the CIA was doing.
– We gave the CIA our bipartisan support.
– We gave the CIA funding to carry out its activities.
– On a bipartisan basis, we asked if the CIA needed
more support from Congress to carry out its mission
I do not recall a single objection from my colleagues.

I don't understand why he did not name names. Why gloss over it. Most people are dumb as a rock when it comes to politics anyway; if you do not spell it out, they won't get it. Goss needs to go on TV and call Pisslosi an unmitigated liar. Repubs should get some fire in their bellies

Rather than calling Pelosi a liar how about Republicans calling for a commission to investigate who knew what/when. Call the Dems bluff. They want to get political points by yelling they want some truth commission and want heads to roll? Fine, we want the folks who wrote the instructions, the people who were briefed on the instructions, but didn't report it as a crime and the people who carried it out. Let Pelosi tell a special prosecutor she was never told what was going on. Lets see how good she is.
My guess is she will find religion so to speak, long before she has to testify under oath. Rotten bitch.Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
