Pelosi's Prevarigate - Nancy Lies Again

"we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used." - Nancy Pelosi, in Version1.0 of her waterboarding story

Pelosi's Prevarigate scandal now has Obama-appointed CIA Director Panetta contradicting Speaker Pelosi

“CIA officers briefed truthfully on the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, describing ‘the enhanced techniques that had been employed,’” according to CIA records.
The old saw is it's the cover-up not the crime that kills you. Pelosi has told 3 versions of the story of "What did she know about waterboarding and when did she know it?" All three stories turned out to be false. Quit digging, Nancy.

Her lies have now gotten to the dangerous escalation of calling CIA operatives liars and requiring release of more sensitive memos to prove the truth. Pelosi Lied. Intelligence-gathering died.

UPDATE: The round-up
Steyn: Fun with Dick and Nancy
WSJ: Pelosi's reputation can't handle the truth
NYPost -
NY Dail News - Pelosi is twisting the facts on waterboarding
Pruden: Ants in her pants
Former officer: Pelosi 'should be thrown out of her job': "This is not the first time Congress has developed a version of Alzheimer's disease in failing to remember what it was told about certain covert operations throughout history."

And the New York Times? This top news story is on page A-18. I kid you not.

Dear Travis;

Read the rest of the letter that you took the "Providence" quote from. John Jay was an extraordinarily tolerant person. He believed that a persons faith was between them and their creator and no one else. I that same letter he says that real Christian would never infringe on the rights of another person. The entire letter is about the morality of war, and how Christian leaders would by definition, be disinclined to engage in war.
