@momof3wildkids: Are you kidding me? Pelosi is a falling star? Other than being embarrassed, what has she lost? Supporters have said that attacking her is just a way to take the heat off of the real culprits, but no one was even looking her way until she decided to get up in front of the American people and lie to them. The torture of detainees was indeed a failure of the government, but it wasn't strictly an administration failure.
Pelosi could have said that she was told about the water-boarding, but was powerless to do anything or alert the American people because she was not cleared to release the information, but that would have made her appear weak. Instead, she denied having ever heard about water-boarding, then said that she heard that they were considering water-boarding and then called the CIA liars after finding out that the water-boarding was already underway when she was briefed. Do I want to see all of the evidence? Absolutely. However, what we currently are seeing indicates deception.
I'm not asking for her execution. I don't think she should go to jail (although that may be because of an ignorance of the law on my part). I don't even think that she should be ousted from Congress until the next election. However, Speaker of the House is a high honor and a powerful position. She need to go.
