It seems that the more that lawmakers learn of Nancy Pelosi's CIA briefings, the less the public does. Members of the House and Senate intelligence committees spent the past week poring over the notes from Nancy Pelosi’s CIA briefing in 2002, but it hasn’t gotten them anywhere close to consensus as to what happened. Republicans who have seen the documents are, of course, saying that they precisely lay out that Pelosi knew about waterboarding, but Dems argue that the briefing memos are far from specific. Though accounts of the briefing differ, congressional officials say there may have been a don’t-ask-don’t-tell mentality when it came to discussing how the CIA was getting its information -- a strategy that may have resulted in vague notes from the meeting. And, maybe having learned from the release of some other memos, both Pelosi and top Republicans say they want to keep their briefing memo classified.
