Democrats block investigation

According to the Associated Press,
House Democrats on Thursday defeated a Republican push to investigate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's claims that the CIA misled her in 2002 about whether waterboarding had been used against terrorism suspects.

The House voted 252-172 to block the measure that would have created a bipartisan congressional panel. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, sponsored the resolution.

On the one hand, we have the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, charging the CIA with lying to Congress, and on the other hand, we have the CIA and others charging the third highest government official in the nation--Nancy Pelosi--of lying to the American people in her efforts to coverup her knowledge of waterboarding.

Wouldn't you think "the most ethical Congress in history" would want to know the truth, one way or the other?

The fact that Democrats defeated this resolution can only mean one thing: Democrats can't handle the truth, which appears to be that while Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats were threatening to end people's careers and threatening to throw people in prison for their involvement in waterboarding, the Democrats knew about it all along and, by their silence, gave their approval!

The next Congressional election is coming up in about 18 months. If ever there was a time to throw the bums (Democrats) out of office, this is it!
