He’s in full rant about Speaker of the House Pelosi with his new mantra about what she knew about torture and when she knew it. He’s advertising that he’ll have a timeline on his show tonight. I wonder if it will look anything like this.
Earlier he read from Karl Rove’s WSJ op-ed today.
If Mrs. Pelosi considers the enhanced interrogation techniques to be torture, didn’t she have a responsibility to complain at the time, introduce legislation to end the practices, or attempt to deny funding for the CIA’s use of them? If she knew what was going on and did nothing, does that make her an accessory to a crime of torture, as many Democrats are calling enhanced interrogation?
For the past hour, Hannity has been playing fast and loose with time. He keeps implying that Pelosi had a lot more power than she did at the time this all happened. He’s calling for a special prosecutor and for Pelosi to testify under oath (something Hannity never demanded of Bush or Cheney, surprise surprise.) And gees, now he’s talking to Dick Morris.
Every Republican/Conservative has wanted Pelosi out since she took office. they are getting ahead of themselves here, I think.
From the comments at Ballon Juice, there might be a an underlying, alternative outcome of this whole thing. I read about it right when Obama released the memos: that the torture was not done to protect the country, but rather to justify the invasion of Iraq.
Yes, let’s have a true commission, or a special counsel as Hannity wants.
Now Dick Morris is lying about how the FBI found out about Jose Padilla. Now who are you going to believe, Dick Morris, or the guy who got the information?
Have you ever noticed that it’s always a special edition of the Sean Hannity Show?
Update Update: Hannity is going to far. He thinks Pelosi is shaking because she is lying. He says Pelosi is politicizing it. Irony? Dead.
My God. Father Coughlin was . . . My God. This is more than shameful.
Update Update Update: She’s third in line. Hannity et al WANT her to be shaking.
In the end, this will work out.
