In a Thursday press briefing, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi denied that she was ever told waterboarding would be used. “My colleague, the chairman of the committee, has said ‘if they say that it’s legal you have to know they are going to use them.’ Well, his experience is that he was a member of the CIA, later went on to head the CIA and maybe his experience is that if they tell you one thing they may mean something else. My experience is that they did not tell us they were using that. Flat out. And any — any contention to the contrary is simply not true.”
