Why Act Surprised? Pelosi and Reid Are Accomplices In Bush’s War Crimes

On the revelation that Nancy Pelosi was possibly consulted about torture techniques, namely waterboarding, by the Central Intelligence Agency as early as 2002, one thing has confounded me: Would you be so surprised if she had and do you really feel baffled that she has no desire to pursue serious investigations into torture allowed under the Bush administration?

Pelosi and Harry Reid spent 2000 to 2006 cheering on the ‘War on Terror’ and giving a blank check to Bush’s wars. They then spent the election campaign of 2006 promising to end the Iraq war, halt the Bush tax cuts, and investigate torture and other Bush administration practices. So, it’s 2009, and what exactly have they exactly accomplished with 3 years of a Democrat majority? We’re still in Iraq, we’re still in Afghanistan, AIPAC still controls America’s destiny on Iran, Joe Lieberman is still a Democrat, the Patriot Act is not repealed, and Obama embraces the executive power to spy on citizens.

There’s a reason there will never be a serious and thorough investigation of Bush era war crimes: Pelosi, Reid, and a majority of the Democrats spent 8 years being de facto accomplices of some of Bush’s worst crimes. They supported the Iraq War, they supported the Patriot Act, and they supported the warrantless wiretaps. The Congressional Democrats had the power to say something and do something, and they did neither for 8 years of the worst Presidency in American history. And that’s a legacy they have no desire to bring up in the future.

    Alex Jones has connections with the CIA/Jesuits. He is a fear-monger trying to stir up the public to the point of rioting. He has good information as well, but there are other places to get it.

    Congratulations, an employee of yours just ousted who paid for this story to be posted on reddit. Prepare.

  7. Calling Pelosi & Reid “accomplices” is a bit much and it’s a diversion from who really deserves our wrath: The Bush Admin.

  8. Kit says:

    The Bush administration has no power anymore, what’s the point of being mad at them? Who actually has the power to prosecute the Bush administration right now? Who is actively not prosecuting the Bush administration? They are the people who need to be pressured into doing the right thing.

    Wasn’t that more like 2 years? After the Republinazis controlled everything until 2006. And Pelosi was just a spot on the floor until she became speaker – which didn’t happen until the Democranazis took the House. History, and facts, dear boy. Like words, they matter.

    Wasn’t that more like 2 years of Democranazi collaboration? After all the Republinazis controlled everything until 2006, the truth is the Democranazis didn’t have much choice except to say yes sir to their Republinazi lords until the 2006 election. Afterwards, they showed that they had learned their lessons and stations in life well, and continued the practice. And Pelosi… Who knew Pelosi from a pelota until she became the speaker in 2006? Before that she was just a spot on the floor. Commendable propaganda effort old boy, but to paraphrase your party’s patron saint of self indulgence, history, and facts, dear boy. Like words, they matter.

    Alex Jones and HourOfTheTime: kooks. Conspiracy nuts. Total fruits. Sure, a tiny bit of good information but a boatload of CRAP as well. Rather entertaining fiction, but reliable? NO. Truth? NO. Perhaps worth reading/watching when totally toast on inebriating substances but it certainly isn’t NEWS or even slightly reliable. Unfortunately, CNN or FOX and half of what you read on the ‘net are just as inaccurate and based on the same idiotic conspiracies. Read widely, think, but don’t believe half of it!
