In either her second or third generation excuse for failing to take a stand against waterboarding when she was finally told about it (hey, if Pelosi can't keep this stuff straight, how do you expect me to), Pelosi claims that the CIA merely "notified" her of what the CIA was doing. Some oversight, eh? According to Speaker Pelosi, she didn't object because she was constrained, impotent, wholly unable to protest and with no avenue by which to register her abhorance.
It is being reported on Fox News tonight that in 2004, the Bush administration considered a secret CIA-run plan to counter Iran's meddling in Iraqi elections. Pelosi was briefed on the plan and strenuously objected. She personally hunted down Condi Rice and complained until it was agreed that the CIA would not conduct the operation. Thus it would seems that, on the issue of waterboarding, Pelosi's claim of the lack of any avenue through which to register her objection - a ludicrous proposition on its face - is also demonstrably false.
Now, I wonder . . . just how that story got out to the press. I'd give better than even odds that it originated somewhere in CIA headquarters at Langley. Let the leaking commence. I'm going to put on the popcorn and get a beer out of the fridge. This should be some first class entertainment.
