Washington Laugh Riot


Nancy Pelosi has stuck her foot in her mouth again. Or so some say. Why? She said the CIA in essence lied about the use of waterboarding to Congress. Naturally, the media jumped all over it.

I have to laugh. CIA and other agencies in the intelligence game are, by design, liars. They have to be. It's a safety thing, so disguises and cover stories get used for increasing the chance of getting good information. What can be proven right.

Analysts are slightly different. They look at stuff to see what is truth and what is , you guessed it, lies.

So the problem IS?
