VIDEO: Bond condemns Pelosi for 'massive attack' on CIA

The Senate Intelligence Committee's top Republican castigated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for committing a "massive attack" on the CIA yesterday.

Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) said that Pelosi's claims that the CIA misled members of Congress in intelligence briefings was "unbelievable."

"I think it's a tragedy that we are seeing this massive attack on an intelligence community that has kept us safe," Bond said during an appearance Friday morning on NBC's "Today Show."

Bond called claims that the CIA would mislead or lie to Congress "unbelievable," and asserted that the documents he'd seen from earlier in the decade indicated that Pelosi had been fully briefed on the practices used by U.S. interrogators.

Bond also argued that Pelosi could have done something to stop the policy if she wanted.

"We have been advised of things that were contemplated that we thought were wrong, and when we objected, they dropped them," Bond said. "There's a whole list of things, and she did none of them that I'm aware of."
