Nancy Pelosi said she and the Democrats didn't know about waterboarding. However, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) reported that he saw a list of Republicans and Democrats that were briefed on waterboarding.
Pelosi's excuse? She says that members who receive classified briefings are powerless to act on them...so they skip them!
Now we know why they don't seem to know anything.
It's not just because they're dumb.
They're ignorant by choice.
