That is why the words of someone who is a former Democrat House Member of the Intelligence Committee and a former UN Ambassador Bill Richardson so revealing when he states: “And I think a lot of this is personal” between the CIA, Democrats and Senator Feinstein.

“I remember very clearly briefing Nancy Pelosi in September of 2002. The Congress had been on break. . . . We briefed her specifically on the use of the enhanced interrogation techniques on Abu Zubaydah. So, she knew back in September of 2002 every one of our enhanced interrogation --
WALLACE: Let me ask you specifically, did you tell her about waterboarding? Did you tell her about --
RODRIGUEZ: Yes. . . . I briefed her on all of the techniques. These people were fully aware of all the techniques that were given to us and approved by the Office of Legal Counsel at Justice.
WALLACE: And did -- just to take the example you gave us, Nancy Pelosi, did she ever object to the techniques you mentioned?
RODRIGUEZ: She never objected to the techniques at all.
