It must be true now because, as my buddy Martin would put it, it's in a real newspaper (in this case, the Washington Post): the CIA says Nancy Pelosi was, Was, WAS informed about the "enhanced interrogation techniques" used on terrorists captured after 9/11. I have no problem with that. It wasn't illegal. HOWEVER, if Pelosi and her fellow members of Congress knew about, and were complicit in, allowing those techniques, then they should share the consequences with the lawyers who might be facing disbarment for offering advice on those techniques. Most of them are lawyers anyway, so that only makes sense, right? Never mind, this isn't about making sense. It's about demonizing and prosecuting Bush-era people for actions which were legal when they were performed. And on that note, good morning to you!
