Madame Speaker, check your phone, hypocrisy is calling...

As you may have read, the CIA briefed four Congressional leaders, including Nancy Pelosi, on the controversial practice of waterboarding over five years ago. Pelosi did not object. Pelosi also knew about the CIA dentention centers, the "black sites" used to interrogate terrorists.

So, Madame Speaker, for four years you failed to mention the fact that you knew and had been briefed on waterboarding and our "secret prisons."
What could she have done you ask? Maybe what Jane Harman did. Harman replaced Pelosi as the committee's top Democrat in Jan. 2003. She filed a classified letter in Feb. 2003 in official protest of the program. But when Pelosi became Speaker of the House in 2006, Harman was quickly kicked out by Pelosi.

I wonder why?
