ROSE…

When PRESIDENT OBAMA reversed his decision not to oppose the release of incendiary photos, he acknowledged the validity of warnings from his generals in Iraq and in Afghanistan that such a move would endanger U.S. troops deployed there.

THORN…

After denying it for months, House Speaker NANCY PELOSI now admits that she had been fully briefed on the use of harsh interrogation techniques in the fall of 2002, acknowledging publicly that she knew alleged terrorist detainees were subjected to waterboarding. Now she claims that the CIA misled her. Trouble is, former CIA director and House Intelligence Committee chairman Porter Goss attended the same briefings and describes Pelosi’s claim as part of a “disturbing epidemic of amnesia.” Could the San Francisco congresswoman have been misunderstood? Yeah, and Bernie Madoff is a misunderstood philanthropist.
