Nancy is back to her old tricks. This time she falls back on the old lefty tactic, blame it all on Bushitler:
“We all share great respect for the dedicated men and women of the intelligence community who are deeply committed to the safety and security of the American people,” she said in a statement issued by her office. “My criticism of the manner in which the Bush Administration did not appropriately inform Congress is separate from my respect for those in the intelligence community who work to keep our country safe.
“What is important now is to be united in our commitment to ensuring the security of our country; that, and how Congress exercises its oversight responsibilities, will continue to be my focus as we move forward.”
So is it the CIA that lied to her or the Bush administration? Or does she now believe the Bush administration ordered the CIA and George Tenet to lie to congress and they complied? You really can’t make this stuff up.
There are plenty of reasons to call this latest excuse completely bonkers but Allah has the best:
according to Pelosi’s logic here, if this is all just another of the Bushitler’s conspiracies, then her failure to mention it until now means she’s been essentially covering for George Bush.
Either way, this is her attempt at damage control because she knows full well that the CIA will win this fight. So bring up Bushitler’s name and the left become mesmerized once again into complete idiocy.
