Wrong Answer!

Sorry boys and NonPerKin, but this is just the wrong answer:
House Democrats today rebuffed the latest bid by Republicans to pummel Speaker Nancy Pelosi over what she knew about waterboarding and her accusations that the CIA misled her.

The House voted 252-172 to block a GOP measure that would have created a bipartisan congressional panel to investigate Pelosi's claims, which current CIA director Leon Panetta has denied.
This is partisan politics and an attempt by the Republicans to distract from the real issue of creating jobs and making progress on health care, energy and education," Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami told the Associated Press.

While I agree that the whining by the alleged republicans is about distracting the nation in a time of ongoing economic problems.

I need to go on record that there IS a need to establish what actually did occur with regards to Americans Engaged In War Crimes!

Clearly if we are willing to convict the enlisted personnel who carried out the policy, we need to understand who in the chain of command were involved in making that atmosphere acceptable. Given the ongoing confusion that dearOldDick has about whether or not Torture is Torture, we may need to hold some of these hearings as a part of the broader nattional agenda to provide universal health care, so that people like dearOldDick will be able to get the sort of psychiatric help that he is clearly crying out for.
