Who said it? And when did they say it? The fun new party game that’s sweeping Washington, DC.

Gitmo. Scene of untold horrors and told unhorrors.

Gitmo. Scene of untold horrors and told unhorrors.

See if you can guess who said the following in regarding Guantanamo inmates:

“One of the things we clearly want to do with these prisoners is to have an ability to interrogate them and find out what their future plans might be, where other cells are located. Under the Geneva Convention, you are really limited in the amount of information that you can elicit from people…[They] are not, in fact, people entitled to the protection of the Geneva Convention. They are not prisoners of war…Those in Europe and other places who are concerned about the treatment of al-Qaida members should come to Camp X-ray and see how the people are, in fact, being treated.”

Was it said by:

A. George Bush in June 2007
B. Dick Cheney in October 2008
C. John Ashcroft in 2003
D. Condoleezza Rice in 2009

The answer is None of the Above.

The quote comes from Eric Holder, our current attorney general, back in 2002. Now Holder is supposed to decide whether or not to depose or indict Bush’s legal advisors. Not that you’ll ever hear him questioned about his pre-Obama views on the evening news.

Do amnesiac Democrats (abetted by their liberal media cheerleaders) really want to keep digging themselves into a “torture” hole over the use of enhanced interrogation techniques that they approved of at the time? Maybe Holder will end up indicting himself along with House Screecher Pelosi.

As columnist Victor Davis Hanson ends a recent column, “If I were the Democratic leadership, I’d move on, so to speak.”

Since Nancy Pelosi alleged that the CIA misled her and misleads the Congress of the United States “all the time”, shouldn’t the Attorney General have his Justice Department investigate Pelosi’s allegations, as they would be criminal acts? Wouldn’t it also be a crime, and an impeachable act to make such allegations, if they were false? I don’t think that Madam Speaker, can just put this behind her and move on with the socialization of America. Will Pelosi only tell the truth if she is waterboarded?

Politicians need to be waterboarded every time they open their mouths, maybe then we could get some slight hint of what they are really thinking.
