President Obama Does The Right Thing, Deserves Credit

In an unprecedented move, President Barack Obama reversed himself, deciding to fight the release of photos purportedly showing humiliating treatment of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mr. Obama also announced he would have some detainees at the U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, tried by military commissions, putting him at odds with much of his liberal political base, but winning striking praise from "rational thinking people" who contrasted his sober decisions against the accusations of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that the CIA has lied to her and Congress continually.

In other news, a Washington Times Poll showed that only 6% of those polled believe Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) while 91% believe the CIA.

However... I understand that Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must stick to her "anti-torture shtick" but the fact she didn't blow a whistle or say a word or object in any way to waterboarding etc. way back at the time when she first learned about it is remarkable, her silence provided the CIA time to perform the enhanced interrogation, her silence allowed the CIA to obtain critical information and her silence helped stop a terrorist attack on Los Angeles CA. perhaps saving thousands of lives.

As Rush Limbaugh pointed out... perhaps "San Fran Nan" deserves a hero's medal.

lol... don't worry the "love-fest" didn't last long.

But I gotta give Pelosi bigtime props... had she blown the whistle when she first found out about waterboarding etc. they probably would not have prevented the LA attack and who knows how many other attacks since that is still classified.

I don't give her any kind of props.

If she is doing anything "right" she is just playing politics now (IMHO).

Agreed. Dick Morris wrote something recently about her and the fact that he thinks that she will be forced to resign. I hope he is right because I cannot stand that woman.

C'mon Otter... she kept her big fat botox'd tofu trap shut and saved lives... now all she has to do is convince everyone that she knew nothing about it... heroism and modesty ahhh what a leader.
