The fight is over when, not if, Pelosi knew about torture.
But, Pelosi admits she knew before she became speaker, and said and did little or nothing about it as speaker. No laws, no hearings, no bans and no funding cut offs.
As long as we're a nation that reads J.D. Salinger in middle school, hypocrites will never be excused. Pelosi is making Cheney's venal but honest approach look good. Say what you will about Cheney, but he's no hypocrite. When he opposes something, he fights it.
