CIA briefed 68 lawmakers on interrogation program

Pelosi, who became House Democratic leader in late 2002, said at a news conference in April last year that she was never told at the time that simulated drowning -- or waterboarding -- and other harsh interrogation techniques were being used. She said she was only told the CIA had legal opinions that approved harsh interrogation methods.

Hayden, in his 2007 statement for the Senate Select Committee, said as the CIA began implementing the interrogation program in 2002 "the majority and minority leaders of the Senate, the speaker, and the minority leader of the House, and the chairs and ranking members of the intelligence committees were fully briefed on the interrogation procedures."

TVNL Comment: This is why Congress does nothing about the crimes committed by our nation, including 9/11 (yes, it was an inside job). It is because they are complicit in many of the crimes as they knew and they either approved or did nothing.
