Pelosi for Waterboarding before she was against it

In another yawn-inspiring reaction from the Main Steam Media to blatant Democratic Hypocrisy, Nancy Pelosi's knowledge of, and tacit support of waterboarding is slowly coming to light.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi...insisted she was not told that waterboarding was used on al-Qaeda suspect Abu Zubaydah despite a newly released CIA report that says she was. - Boston Herald

...Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.
"The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough," said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange. - Washington Post

Pelosi's nemesis Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) was the only member of Congress to utter any questions about the practice, as documented in a recently declassified CIA letter Harman wrote in Feb. 10, 2003 - Washington Times

God Help Us.

"My statement is clear, and let me read it again. Let me read it again. I'm sorry. I have to find the page," said a flustered Mrs. Pelosi, shuffling through papers, her hands quivering a bit, as she sought to stick to her prepared text.
