Pelosi still taking CIA briefings
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at her weekly press conference yesterday continued dodging questions about her accusations that the CIA lied to Congress about waterboarding terrorist detainees.
Pelosi was pressed by reporters on whether she continued to receive briefings and admitted that she is still receiving the CIA presentations. She refused to answer when this humble correspondent asked whether or not she believes intelligence professionals are still lying to her.
About that vacation in Mexico
Things got a bit out of hand over the weekend in Acapulco, Mexico, in the heart of the hotel district.
A military official says 15 gunmen and a soldier were killed in a two-hour shootout in the heart of Acapulco’s hotel zone.
