ABSTRACT
The article looks at the denial by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the claim that she had been informed by the Central Intelligence Authority (CIA) in September 2002 on the alleged use of waterboarding on terrorist detainees. CIA director Leon Panetta stressed in his statement that the agency's records from September 2002 revealed the briefing by CIA officers on the questioning of detainee Abu Zubaydah. The author asserts that Pelosi was aware that such interrogation method was being used and that she failed to stop it.
