In an interview with ABC News Radio’s Marcus Wilson, Gingrich, R-Ga., said Pelosi, D-Calif., “has lied to the House” in claiming that she was never briefed by the CIA about the Bush administration’s use of waterboarding and other harsh tactics.
This audio is the most blistering attack yet launched on the embattled, "spooked" Speaker:
CIA Chief Says They Told the Truth!
In a related story, Leon Panetta, Obama's head of the CIA, former Chief of Staff at the Clinton White House and a former Congressman sent a memo today to CIA employees reacting to Pelosi's charge the Agency lied to Congress about waterboarding THREE TERRORISTS. The following is an excerpt from that memo:
Let me be clear: It is not our policy or practice to mislead Congress. That is against our laws and our values. As the Agency indicated previously in response to Congressional inquiries, our contemporaneous records from September 2002 indicate that CIA officers briefed truthfully on the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, describing “the enhanced techniques that had been employed.” Ultimately, it is up to Congress to evaluate all the evidence and reach its own conclusions about what happened.The House of Represensatives needs to open an immediate investigation to determine whether the Speaker is a LIAR!
