After years of trumpeting "Bush Lied," including about supposed torture, when it turns out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lied about not knowing terrorist detainees were being waterboarded, press progressives at the New York Times hid the story on page 15. To its credit, the WaPo put it on the front page.
No wonder no one's buying the paper. Or buying Pelosi's unconvincing amnesia--as Insty says:
Another pro-torture Democrat. There used to be a lot of ‘em. Now it’s their logic that’s tortured.But both the Times and the Speaker prefer blaming Bush to growing up.
No wonder the New York Times Company corporate bonds have become junk.

FactCheck.org weighs in: "It is clear that Pelosi has contradicted herself, and that she knew as early as 2003 that waterboarding was in use, long before she raised any public or private objection."
