Lie, world, truth, boots, and the big picture

Nancy Pelosi is getting the worst of public opinion in the CIA/torture-briefing imbroglio.

FactCheck “fact-checks” Nancy.

Marcy Wheeler fact-checks FactCheck. FTW.

And the media, once again distracted by shiny objects, wanders away from the big picture: We committed torture in violation of U.S. and international law and the people responsible aren’t being held accountable.



  1. It’s kinda SAD that the right has taken up the banner of torture.
    I saw Pat Robertson on TV yesterday and he was defending Dick Cheney’s torture stance.
    I have always respected Robertson as a religious leader, but he has lost his spiritual compass when he condones such treatment.
    What happened to family values?
    Who would Jesus torture?

  2. Nancy Pelosi is getting the worst of public opinion in the CIA/torture-briefing imbroglio.

    Of course she does, the public sees her for what she is, a damn liar. There are liars, damn liars and the scum of the Earth lying politicans. Look in the dictionary under “Lying Politicans” and you’ll see a group shot of Pelosi, Reid, Kennedy, and other similar Democrats. Eventually the people will not stand for the crap going on in Washington, they will stand up, and changes in Washington will be made, hopefully before Obama and his henchmen destroy the country.

  3. Sorry, Beau, but here in the reality-based community, all available evidence indicates it’s Nancy, not the CIA, who’s telling the truth at this point. Hell, Panetta’s memo said from the beginning that their information was not reliable.

    At any rate, I’m less interested in that than I am in investigating and indicting those responsible for torture and homicide. You can defend that if you like; just don’t expect a sympathetic hearing from me.
