Pelosi accuses the CIA of lying to her

Otis A. Glazebrook IV
Nancy Pelosi apparently has not learned the first lesson of Washington, D.C.: When you are in a hole, stop digging.

At her press conference this morning the Speaker accused the CIA of lying to Congress on the subject of Enhanced Interrogation Techniques.

Of course this means that the CIA will go from a defensive mode into a full offense mode. Expect all sorts of documents exculpatory to the CIA and more proof Pelosi's incompetence.

What is worse? Knowing that something you are morally offended by is about to happen and doing nothing to stop it, or people properly charged with America's security going too far?
