CQ Homeland Security

One thing you can say about Nancy Pelosi: She’s slow to anger.

Put aside the Speaker’s stumbling over what the CIA told her and when about “harsh interrogation techniques.”

Let’s say she read about the CIA’s simulated drowning of al Qaeda suspects — two of them 266 times alone — in The Washington Post.

What did she do then? Did she call up George Tenet, CIA director until Porter Goss replaced him in 2004, and howl? Did she ream out Goss?

Did she call either up and say, “Listen, you SOB, you lied to me”?

As far as I can tell, she did nothing.
