Pelosi Claims Being Mislead on Waterboarding

Ad Feedback

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in the middle of a debate about interrogation techniques on terrorists.

She's accusing the CIA and Bush Administration of lying to her and the rest of Congress about the use of waterboarding.

Pelosi is also standing behind previous claims that she did not know the tactic was being used in interrogations.

A reporter asked Pelosi Thursday if she is, "accusing the CIA of lying to you in September of 2002."

"Yes, they mislead the Congress of the United States," Pelosi answered.

"I'm telling you that they talked about interrogations that they have done, and said 'we want to use enhanced techniques and we have legal opinions that say that they are okay.  We are not using waterboarding,'" she continued.  "That is the only mention that they were not using it." 

Pelosi is taking heat from Republicans for wanting to investigate the Bush administration's use of waterboarding-- a practice they say she knew was going on.
