    "Haspel joined the CIA in 1985 and has held several top positions in the agency including deputy director of the National Clandestine Service.[5] Haspel ran a "black site" CIA prison located in Thailand in 2002.[6][7] The site was codenamed "Cat’s Eye" and held suspected al Qaeda members Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Abu Zubaydah for a time. The Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture specifies that during their detention at the site they were waterboarded and interrogated using no-longer-authorized methods.[5][8] Declassified CIA cables specify that Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times in a month, was sleep deprived, kept in a "large box", had his head slammed against a wall, and he lost his left eye. Zubaydah was deemed, by the CIA interrogators, to not be in possession of any useful intelligence (Interrogation of Abu Zubaydah).[9]"

    Gina Haspel - wiki

    I would expect the Senate confirmation hearings to be contentious.
    Nah, even Obama's CIA heads support her. It wasn't classified as torture when she ran the program.

    And not a single JPP liberal wants to applaud Trump for this. Had this been under Obama, this thread would be 300 posts long with liberals gushing over how great Obama is.

    She should be jailed for crimes against humanity for taking part in torture. This is a good reason for the death penalty, if Obama would've put all people involved in the torture program to death they wouldn't be able to claw their way back in to power.

    Didn't Obama stop torture in 2009?

    Hiring this woman was another Trump mistake.

    Why would we applaud a black site operator who engaged in torture ? She destroyed interrogation tapes when their actions were discovered. She is definitely a righty. She is not who leftys would back. We can actually evaluate people for what they do. Can you imagine that?" What makes you think you can speak for liberals? You are information free, propaganda filled and always wrong.

    We don't support a woman who was overseer of a secret prison where detainees were tortured.

    Not to mention, she destroyed evidence of waterboarding.

    What a winner.

    Did she promise loyalty to the orange clown?
    We have the intellect to imagine the finality of our own demise but do not have the sophistication to overcome our survival instinct and accept it.
    Solution? Magical thinking and childish promises of everlasting life.

    She helped lead the CIA's torture program. Then was involved in destroying tapes of the evidence.

    Hello Yaya,

    Thanks for the reply. CIA heads do not sit in the US Senate which must confirm Haspel. “She was up to her eyeballs in torture: both in running a secret torture prison in Thailand, and carrying out an order to cover up torture crimes by destroying videotapes,” ? USA Today

    Destroying evidence is illegal.

    The confirmation hearings will be contentious.
