She already has the cake. Why not eat it?

And since I'm ragging on liberal "women", let's bring everyone's favorite Speaker of the House into focus.

With all this talk of "torturing" our enemies and prosecuting Bush Admin staff, lets turn back the clock on Mrs. Pelosi and what she knew and when.

From Glenn Thrush

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing back on GOP charges that she knew about waterboarding for years and did nothing.

Pelosi says she was briefed by Bush administration officials on the legal justification for using waterboarding — but that they never followed through on promises to inform her when they actually began using "enhanced" interrogation techniques

"In that or any other briefing…we were not, and I repeat, were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation techniques were used. What they did tell us is that they had some legislative counsel ... opinions that they could be used," she told reporters today.

But let's look to this Washington Post Article

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA’s overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.

Methinks Nancy is incapable of truth telling. What do you think?
