Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is at the forefront of Democrats who want to prosecute and persecute former Bush Administration officials for the "enhanced interrogation methods" used on al Qaeda prisoners in the wake of 9/11. You know, those methods that likely enabled us to prevent a second-wave attack on Los Angeles. Whereas the Obama White House and Senate Majority Leader Reid want to limit the farce to congressional hearings, La Nancita wants a full-bore truth commission, as if the United States were a nation recovering from a brutal dictatorship, like Argentina or South Africa.Then again, in Nancy's Leftist fantasyland, maybe that's just what she believes.But she should be careful, since the flames she seeks to fan against those eeeevvviiillll BushChimpHitler officials might burn her, too. Pelosi herself was ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee during the time in question and, as former CIA Director and former Chair of that same committee Porter Goss, pointed out, the chairs and ranking members of both the House and Senate committees were briefed several times by the CIA on terrorist interrogations and fully supported them.Yet now Nancy is shocked, shocked to discover that wars are nasty -- she wants her witch hunt, blast it. She can just smell the political hay to be made from bashing Bush and the Republicans some more, but they are not going to let her get away with this case of convenient amnesia.You want a truth commission, Mrs. Pelosi? Fine. Bring it on. Let's have that full-throated discussion of "harsh" interrogation of terrorists who believe they're doing Allah's work when they carve off heads or fly planes into buildings and who'd dearly love to set off a nuclear weapon in the US. Let's clear away the cobwebs of convenient amnesia to let the world know just how much you and your party members supported those same techniques, funding them year after year and even wondering why we weren't doing more. Let's bring out all the details of how those techniques saved Americans from horrible deaths and find out what the American people support: a government that recognizes that its highest, first duty is to protect and defend its citizens, or one willing to gut its intelligence service and put the people at risk, all in the name of a preening sanctimony that's nothing more than a cover for a partisan hack job.So, let's have that truth commission, Speaker Pelosi. Just remember, truth hurts.RELATED: Noemie Emery has an excellent article with the same message: Let the hearings begin!
