In the soap opera of American politics, we’ve seen countless stories about torture and who knew what, when. It’s almost incestuous. Let’s see if I get this right… it’s a little twisted: Democrats charge that Republicans, specifically the Bush Administration, was behind the the approval of torture methods, such as waterboarding. Republicans counter that it was the CIA who misinformed them, or didn’t inform them at all, about what was really going on. CIA disputes this and claims that Republicans and Democrats alike knew about and approved of what was going on.
Enter Nancy Pelosi, who is quoted as saying, “We were not — I repeat — were not told that waterboarding or any of these other enhanced interrogation methods were used” and Karl Rove, who just wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal, a News Corp. publication, which is now linked to on The Fox Nation web site. He claims, “Nancy Pelosi was an accomplice to ‘torture’” and “she not only agreed with what was being done, she apparently pressed the CIA to do more.” Accomplice is defined as “A cooperator; An associate in the commission of a crime.” In other words, Mr. Rove seems to imply that others should be charged for ordering torture, such as those in the Bush Administration, including himself. What a tangled web…
