The Pelosi Scandal
In her arrogance to abuse power coupled with a venomous desire to deal out punishment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fell into her own web of deceit. In the midst of attacking the Bush Administration anti-terrorism policies, she stumbled into an area where her own lack of credibility is on display.
Caught up in arrogance and stupidity, Pelosi somehow decided it was a good idea to attack the CIA. Asked whether she was accusing the CIA of lying, she replied, “Yes, of misleading the Congress of the United States.” As a result, the sharks are circling and her position as Speaker of the House is in jeopardy.
Nancy Pelosi is losing power, credibility and support by the minute as Democrats lurk in the shadows. With so many documents floating around, it is stunning to think she believes it possible to roll back the truth.
There is no denying that the people in the CIA have had a huge hand in keeping the country safe. To slander them just to protect her hide is unforgivable. Instead of thanking the CIA for their service, Pelosi calls them out on the carpet and accuses them of repeatedly lying.
The House Speaker must face the truth. If she thought the CIA was lying then she should have said so a long time ago. Her jaded defense of attacking the CIA years later is laughable and that squealing you hear is from someone who suspects her days as House Speaker is numbered.
Pelosi is actively undermining the security of the nation for no other reason than to protect her own political career. As it stands now, we must wait to see if the Democrats will oppose Pelosi or support her despicable behavior. Since many of their seats are at risk in 2010 it should be interesting to see which sword they choose.
UPDATE: Pelosi’s office has responded with a gentle statement supporting the work of the intelligence community, saying she was criticizing the Bush administration, not the bureaucrats at the CIA.
So now Pelosi’s defense of lying is it’s George Bush’s fault? Looks like the Pelosi pattern of covering the last lie with another lie continues. Stay tuned… I predict the next words out of her mouth will be another lie.
