Gingrich: Pelosi Dishonest, Vicious, Trivial and a Liar

“I don’t think the Speaker of the House can lie to the country on national security. This isn’t politics, this is national security.”

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich unloads on current Speaker Nancy Pelosi. His outrage is well placed and his articulation is crystal clear. Newt should appear on as many cable news outlets as he can and repeat this 4+ minute political confrontation. He should be on each Sunday news program this weekend.

On the other hand…

A year from now will any of this matter? We’re a country of sheep, led by an empty suit with a messianic complex. The majority of Americans can’t even identify Nancy Pelosi, and they definitely don’t understand the importance of this issue.

But this is a very big deal. I fear that U.S. service men and women will lose their lives because of the derelict Nancy Pelosi and her extreme lapse of judgement. Her self centered power grab is obscene. Pelosi and her leftist special interest groups are willing to throw anyone under the bus for political gain.

One year from now we may not be talking about Pelosi and whether or not she was briefed on waterboarding. But a year from now Americans will have suffered because of her, and our national security will be even further weakened. Our enemies are waiting.

Nancy Pelosi Lies

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi today accused the CIA of lying to her regarding the use of waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques employed by the Bush administration after 9/11.

The CIA isn’t the liar in this case. Nancy Pelosi is.

Pelosi gives conflicting reports almost hourly.

  1. She claimed she was never briefed on the use of enhanced interrogation techniques.
  2. She stated she had not been briefed about the use of water boarding.
  3. She confessed she did attend a briefing but there was no talk of any enhanced interrogation techniques.
  4. She confessed she was briefed but she wasn’t made clear on the definition of the techniques used.
  5. Today, she confessed she was briefed but was never told about the fact that waterboarding had been used on a terrorist suspect, even though terrorist suspect Abu Zubaydah had been waterboarded a month before she was briefed on the subject in Sept. 2002.

And it goes on and on…

Question: Does it matter that one of the left’s most revered leaders is a blatant liar?

Yes, it does. And Pelosi is a liar. She was fully aware of the use of enhanced interrogation techniques and is now only trying to cloud the fact that she knew from the beginning that the Bush Administration was actively employing the practice. It wasn’t very important to her to fret about “torture” back then, but now it’s in her best interest to use it as a political sledge hammer. That hammer is about to fall squarely on her own head.

The politicizing of our national security must end.
