It's getting clear as the nose on your face that Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and her staff knew about torture, including waterboarding, and didn't object until it became a political hot potato. These days she needs to carry around a flour canister to powder her nose which grows longer by the minute. But who could be surprised? Nancy already threw out the fifth commandment, Thou shalt not kill, and the eighth commandment only forbids lying. Besides, she's the Speaker and rules are for others, especially the opposition.
But who can blame poor Nancy? When the laws of God conflict with the laws of politics, what's a gal (even a devout Catholic gal like Nancy who knows more about the faith than the pope) to do? It was such an opportunity to bash the opposition!
There's plenty to criticize on the torture issue on both sides of the political spectrum, but the charade that Nancy et al occupy the moral high ground is rapidly disintegrating. Nancy on her high horse is plunging down the mudslide into the swamp with the people she's been criticizing. She concurred in the techniques by her silence and now she's lying about it.
