QueenNancy Loves "Torture"

HT Ace, and the wayback machine...

In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA's overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk

...Individual lawmakers' recollections of the early briefings varied dramatically, but officials present during the meetings described the reaction as mostly quiet acquiescence, if not outright support. "Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing," said Goss, who chaired the House intelligence committee from 1997 to 2004 and then served as CIA director from 2004 to 2006. "And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement." --WaPo, 2007

Frankly, it's likely that QueenNancy would approve 'torture' for Napolitano's CURRENT list of "terrorist" suspects (pro-lifers, believing Christians, Constitutionalists, returning war vets...), if they don't like her program for Fascist America.
