Democrat leaders including Nancy Pelosi knew all about waterboarding over five years ago when it was actually being used, and only began making an issue of it in 2005 after the CIA had already abandoned its use.
In other words, the whole waterboarding protest by Democrats had nothing to do with principles, only with cynical political grandstanding.
Once again Democrats fake having principles, and Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), and Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) and John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), have no problem going before the American people to lie and demagogue issues of national security.
As long as Americans are such willing dupes, Democrats might as well continue their lies.
