Pelosi: CIA Misled Me

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been taking her lumps since reports started circulating that she had been briefed about waterboarding in 2002. Today, Pelosi accused the CIA and Bush administration about misleading her over waterboarding and disputed accusations that she was complicit in the treatment. “To the contrary ... we were told explicitly that waterboarding was not being used," she said at a press conference. “I wasn't briefed, I was informed that somebody else had been briefed about it.”
