Democrats were routinely briefed on Bush ‘torture’ techniques, document shows

E-mail Print PDF

The CIA has released a devastating document detailing the dates and explicit details of secret Congressional briefings in which members of Congress were told of the Bush administration’s torture techniques and when they had been used.

The document is explicit (PDF here). Most damningly, perhaps, is its description of a meeting held between CIA staff and then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Porter Goss and now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which shows that Pelosi was briefed on the Bush Administration’s torture techniques in 2002 — even though she’s publicly said she was never told about the use of waterboarding.

TVNL Comment: We have said for years that the reason the Democrats did not expose all the Bush crimes, from election fraud to 9/11, was because they were complicit.
