Fmr CIA Torture Head: Nancy Pelosi, Top Dems ‘Knew Exactly What We Were Doing’ (National Review Online)

The CIA official who ran the agency’s enhanced interrogation program in the years immediately following the 9/11 attacks said that congressional leaders up in arms over harsh interrogation tactics once criticized him for not being tough enough on terrorist detainees.

Jose Rodriguez, the CIA’s point man for counter-terrorism between 2002 and 2004, told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday that Democratic lawmakers now accusing the CIA of keeping Congress in the dark on some interrogation methods “knew exactly what we were doing.”

“I remember very clearly briefing [California Democrat] Nancy Pelosi in September of 2002,” he said, claiming he “briefed her specifically on the enhanced interrogation techniques of Abu Zubayda. So she knew, back in September of 2002, every one of our enhanced interrogation techniques.”
