Islamists Exploit The U.S. Penal System
That seems to be the message from House Democrats:
House Democrats on Thursday defeated a Republican push to investigate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that the CIA misled her in 2002 about whether waterboarding had been used against terrorism suspects.
Republicans Ron Paul of Texas and Walter Jones of North Carolina joined Democrats in voting 252-172 to block the measure, which would have created a bipartisan congressional panel. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, sponsored the resolution.
So, let me get this straight… we can indict, prosecute, and convict one man on the basis of one mis-remembered conversation (Scooter Libby), but it’s beyond the pale to set up a bipartisan panel to look into whether or not Pelosi is speaking the truth when she says the CIA always lies?
This is a double-standard on stilts. Welcome to America under the control of Democrats. Whatever Republicans do is wrong, whatever Democrats do is right.
Why Not Water Board?
