No proof that speaker lied

The Spokesman-Review

Nancy Pelosi may have lied. But no one outside of a few high-placed individuals in the CIA know whether or not that is true.

Therefore, let me say this to Tom Hayes (Letters, May 20) and to the many political cartoonists who have made that allegation in your paper of late: To say that you know Pelosi lied is a lie.

I know many would rather distract us from the much bigger question of whether Dick Cheney urged the CIA to use torture to extract false confessions supporting a connection between Iraq and al-Qaida. But in either case we should wait for more evidence before putting Cheney in jail or removing Pelosi from office.
