On Information Gained from "Torture Techniques"

One thing I don't have a problem with is people having a position contrary to mine. There is always going to be opposition to your point of view, no matter who is right.

What I do have a problem with is Nancy Pelosi going out of her way to lie and claim she was mislead to put blame and shame on the nation's intelligence services. Also, I have a problem with the current administration going out of their way to do everything they can to punish or blame the former administration, including prosecutions of aides and advisers.

Mostly, their outrage is over the 4 memos sent around the intelligence agencies. In it included ten techniques, including waterboarding. Of course, Senator Pelosi and dozens of other senators were fully briefed on these techniques and their usage for the War on Terror. They have the nerve to assert they were "not informed" or "mislead" or, my favorite, "told it might be done in the future but that it had not been done, yet".

All I can say is: bullshit. They were briefed (quite a few times) and there is very little chance that they were "in the dark" so to speak.

Damn hypocrites.
