Pelosi Intrudes Into Wayne’s World

By Wayne Simmons 09/18/2009 As I reflect back over the 27 years I spent hunting terrorists and those supporting them on virtually every continent in the world, I can’t help but wonder how my case officer would react today if he was alive to watch the Speaker of the House of the Congress of the United States attack and attempt to dismantle the CIA, the single most important intelligence agency in the world. In 1975, I watched the Church Committee decimate the CIA’s human intelligence -- “humint” -- capabilities. As a result, for over 25 years the U.S. was subjected to brutal, deadly attacks by Islamic terrorists at our bases and embassies around the world and on the high seas. This did not seem to alarm anyone other than those of us with the CIA and FBI until the Islamic terrorists drove jets into the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. Only then did Congress want to know why the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies did not or could not foresee the attack that killed almost 3,000 people. Nancy Pelosi, who I suggested was a “pathological liar” on the Fox News Channel 4 months ago, told reporters in May that she had not been informed that waterboarding was used against terrorism suspects (though she finally acknowledged she had been briefed in at least 2003). That was, of course, despite the fact that the CIA compiled, the DNI released, and HUMAN EVENTS broke the story of the memo that showed Pelosi had been briefed on September 4, 2002 which “enhanced interrogation techniques” -- which we know included waterboarding -- had been used on Abu Zubaydeh. It is exhausting just trying to keep up with Pelosi’s stories. Vice President Cheney confirmed in a speech at the American Enterprise Institute that she and other lawmakers were indeed briefed on CIA interrogation techniques on many separate occasions. Predictably, the Vice President was summarily attacked by the White House and the left. I found it incredibly gratifying coming to the Vice Presidents defense…as if he needed my help.
