Those Darn Republicans.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman, Rep. John Larson (D-CT), said Friday that he agrees with Pelosi’s assertion that the CIA misled Congress and Democrats will stand with the leader.
“I will stand by her integrity any day of the week,” Larson said, casting the dispute with the CIA as more of a debate between the Speaker and Bush administration officials.

“Nancy Pelosi has more integrity in her pinky than Karl Rove and Dick Cheney possess in their entire body,” he said. Larson called the question of what Pelosi learned at a September 2002 intelligence briefing on interrogations a “distraction” created by Republicans who want to deter Congress from investigating whether the Bush administration condoned and used torture.
Hey ummmm...Mr. know that Speaker Pelosi brought this on herself right? She is the one who said the CIA lied...Republicans didn't make this up. She is the one who sat in a meeting (of which fellow Democrats have noted) and heard what the CIA had done/was about to do and didn't speak out.

This is about Nancy Pelosi not speaking out against GWB when the political tide was against that and then slamming him when it was popular. This is about Nancy Pelosi lying and trying to back-track out of her lies.

I am sorry folks. I think Nancy Pelosi is one of the most partisan, biting and outright lying politicians up on Capitol Hill. What a disgrace as the first woman Speaker of the House.

While my opinion of Rove and Dick's integrity is pretty low, I don't think Pelosi is telling the full truth on this. I do think that she needs to be replaced as Speaker of the House and not just because of this issue.

Regardless, I think this just makes it even more important that the use of torture needs to be heavily investigated and anyone who allowed it to happen, regardless of party affiliation needs to be held accountable for it.
