CNN-Gingrich: 'Absolute obligation' to investigate Pelosi
The whole time Bush/Cheney was in office, Dennis Kucinich and others were trying to get Bush and Cheney impeached for war crimes, including torture. Nancy Pelosi kept repeating over and over that impeachment was off the table, and she did nothing to prosecute or attempt in any way to right these wrongs.
It has been suspected for a long time that the reason why she didn't do this is because she would implicate herself for having knowledge of these events.
It seems quite unusual that the Neo Cons are coming back to haunt Pelosi over this issue, especially since she has done so much to attempt to protect them. If she were to tell what she knew, then that would most likely implicate Bush and Cheney directly.
"I think that the House has an absolute obligation to open an inquiry, and I hope there will be a resolution to investigate her. And I think this is a big deal. I don't think the speaker of the House can lie to the country on national security matters," the Republican leader said in an interview with ABC Radio.
