Gina Haspel, Trump’s pick for CIA director, tied to use of brutal interrogation measures

 By Greg Miller and Shane Harris March 13 at 11:01 AM Email the author

President Trump on Tuesday nominated CIA veteran Gina Haspel to be the spy agency’s next director, tapping a woman who spent multiple tours overseas and is respected by the workforce but is deeply tied to the agency’s use of brutal interrogation measures on terrorism suspects.

Haspel, 61, would become the first woman to lead the CIA if she is confirmed to succeed outgoing director Mike Pompeo, who has been nominated to serve as secretary of state. Haspel’s selection faced immediate opposition from some lawmakers and human rights groups because of her prominent role in one of the agency’s darkest chapters.

She's mostly known for the EITs used in the Thailand black site on this winner....

Until the attacks on New York and Washington, Abu Zubaida was a committed jihadist who regarded the United States as an enemy principally because of its support of Israel. He helped move people in and out of military training camps in Afghanistan, including some men who were or became members of al-Qaeda, according to interviews with multiple sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. He was widely known as a kind of travel agent for those seeking such training.

I won't lose any sleep over it, but I'm sure Graham is already swooning.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

This move proves beyond a doubt that Trump really, really hates women.  ^-^

Kidding aside, looks like a good pick.

Another good thing about this is how he continues to disarm his detractors arguments that he’s a sexist, racist, homophobe blah blah blah.

So she's guaranteed to have a smooth confirmation process ;).

Wait until McCain hears about it.  He'll have Dr. Feelgood pump him up with everything so he can return and grandstand.

So much for any media cheers of the First Woman As Head of the CIA.

Oh that's right - it's only a 'first' and only counts when Marxist Democrats in office put people into positions of power because of their skin color and what is between their legs, or lack thereof.
Fart for freedom, fart for liberty and fart proudly.  - Benjamin Franklin

...Obsta principiis—Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers and destroyers press upon them so fast that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon [the] American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour." - John Adams, February 6, 1775

Well, you never know with firsts. The left was not thrilled with Sandra Day O'Connor, until they were.

Quote from: WaPo
Haspel’s selection faced immediate opposition from some lawmakers and human rights groups because of her prominent role in one of the agency’s darkest chapters.

Haspel was in charge of one of the CIA’s “black site” prisons where detainees were subjected to waterboarding and other harrowing interrogation measures widely condemned as torture.

The WaPo makes this claim in the third and fourth sentences of its article.  Yet in the 40+ sentences that follow, there is absolutely NOTHING that substantiates this claim.  Furthermore, they link to an earlier WaPo article where they openly admit as to not knowing where these "black sites" are.

More fake news.

Correctamundo!  It's just like when Bill Clinton nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the first woman on the US Supreme Court.  Or when Carol Mosely Braun became the first African American US Senator in 1993.

Neither will I.  I've got the TV on Fox and Shemp is in full swoon over that fact.

They will attack her in the same manner they attack any pick by a Republican that is female or of color.

If you don't think they will I've got some beach property in W. Texas I'd like to sell you.

All Democrats are concerned about is the fact she is NOT a Liberal like they are.  And because she's not and because she is working for THIS president (I can hear their shrill bleating already) they will rip her to shreds.

Liberals have been doing their best to destroy the CIA since back in the days of the Church Commission.  They would look at her as just another scalp collected.
