On page 10 of Pelosi's 2006 campaign booklet, "A New Direction For America," we see,
"To Defeat Terrorists and Stop the Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction, we will:
Eliminate Osama Bin Laden, destroy terrorist networks like al Qaeda, finish the job in Afghanistan, and end the threat posed by the Taliban.
Double the size of our Special Forces, increase our human intelligence capabilities, and ensure our intelligence is free from political pressure."
After seizing power in 2007 and opposing Bush at every turn on Iraq, she said on January 29,
"Many of us have been convinced for some time that additional forces would benefit the forgotten war in Afghanistan. We are pleased our commanders will now have larger numbers of American troops to prepare for challenging operations in the spring."
She also said in December,
"Democrats might consider new war funding for Afghanistan before leaving Washington next week, but the majority remains opposed to appropriating any more money for the war in Iraq this year."
"There will probably be some level of addressing Afghanistan; some of the domestic concerns about – you've seen the list that the DOD has come up with – we can address those concerns and certainly, perhaps, if more is needed to do something about Afghanistan."
On December 16, 2009, now that much of what she was calling for may be coming to pass, she now says,
"rallying votes for troop surge in Afghanistan will be Obama’s job" adding, "she is finished asking her colleagues to back wars that they do not support."
Are you ready to throw these liars out?
