On the “Cheney Didn’t Tell Us” Lie
I’m on record that this story is a distraction designed to take the heat off Nancy Pelosi lying about and smearing the CIA. It is also a distraction for conservatives who tend to focus on national security issues instead of things like socialized healthcare. Nonetheless, while Democrats are screaming that evil Dick Cheney did not tell them about a CIA program, the former Director of | Read More »
Democrats: Place politics above national security
Do you think the current slates of Congressional leaders are out of control? If you think so, then look no further than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusations that the CIA has been lying to Congress.

Democrats Tape CIA Note on Refrigerator
Have you read this letter? It’s absolutely comical, not even written on real letterhead or even deemed valid by those who signed it. Slipped up under the door of staffers two weeks after the fact it might as well have been left taped to the congressional refrigerator… a note, not an official communication.

Who Is Misleading Who?

There’s something wrong here.
On May 14th, 2009, Nancy Pelosi accused the CIA of lying to her and “misleading the Congress of the United States” on the issue of whether or not waterboarding was used, and when.

Be grateful the RNC didn’t call her ‘Miss Moneyspendy.’
Nothing much happened yesterday, huh? Aside from a lot of people yelling over this rather innocuous ad, apparently: Allahpundit and Legal Insurrection I’ll forgive: they’re merely offering tactical advice, not taking seriously Lefty faux-outrage currently being cataloged (along with other reactions) by The Other McCain, Little Miss Attila, Protein Wisdom, & The Sundries Shack. Personally, I’ll start taking said Left-outrage more seriously when they start | Read More »
