Changing The Subject
I guess the issue has become what was Nancy Pelosi told by the CIA, and when. The issue no longer is whether water-boarding is torture, is effective, is counter-productive, who did it, who authorized it, etc. Has water-boarding become a propaganda boon and a recruiting tool for Al Quaida, costing American lives instead of saving them? All these questions have now been swept under the rug. The only person we hear about today is Nancy Pelosi. How much water-boarding did Nancy actually do? What about those who did the water-boarding? That's become irrelevant. The Right-Wing Smokescreen Brigade is back in its element now, out in full force, and they sure are managing to change the subject.
