Seante Approves Torturer Gina Haspel As New CIA Director

Gina Haspel (Kevin Lamarque/Reuters)

On May 17, the US Senate confirmed in 54 for and 45 against votes the nomination of Gina Haspel as a Director of the Central Intelligence Agency of the US.

Haspel is the first woman to head the CIA. She was picked up to be the next CIA director by US President Donald Trump, who announced his decision on May 13.

However, Haspel is a controversial figure. During the administration of US President George Bush, Haspel was involved in a wide CIA program that included the torture of dozens of suspects.

Haspel worked in the CIA’s first overseas secret prison or so-called “black sites” in Thailand. According to The New Yorker report, based on released internal CIA documents, in 2002 Haspel reportedly oversaw the interrogation of two terrorism suspects. One of them “appeared to be dead” after the tortures. Haspel was also involved in the destruction of about 100 videotapes documenting these tortures. In 2009, US President Barack Obama ordered to close “black sites”. However, current US President expressed support for such techniques of CIA.

While Democrats and Republicans were expressing concerns about Haspel’s nomination, the White House and Trump were defending Haspel and accusing Democrats of trying to block her nomination:

During the confirmation hearing, Haspel stressed that she vows against tortures, saying “under my leadership, CIA will not restart such a detention and interrogation program.”

    What a fitting statement to show the rest of the world who we really are and choose to be.
    As if they didn’t know.

      A perfect replacement in the Allen Dulles tradition. The knuckle-dragging psychopaths will continue to run the Empire until America is destroyed.

      If the Founders of the country could’ve seen what we would become, they wouldn’t have bothered with independence from Britain in the first place. “Meet the new boss…. same as the old boss”.

    She is not controversial, she is just what they say she is, a torturer!If you call her controversial, you could call Manson or Bundy controversial too!

    It would seem that the main credential for upper positions in F.uk.us. and Co. is solid proof of being a Psychopath. They are either increasing desperate to secure their grip on humanity or certain of winning the whole enchilada without any regard to the reality of Evil as the guiding force for their NWO.

      Well they are devoid of souls after all… (warning: some racist comments ahead in the article below).

    Torturer and TRANSSEXUAL as well. Add the two together. A term like RAPIST comes to mind. This is one of America’s heroes and leaders. Heh!

    “My highly respected nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel” Clearly the man has confused respected and feared. Can you imagine the Head of the CIA not being a known torturer and destroyer of incriminating documentation? I’m sure she other skills that will ensure the security of the ‘free’ world.

  • hamster

    I don’t particularly like US foreign policy, but I have to say, if anyone anywhere in the world wanted to hire a world class expert on torture, they should hire me.

    You would not believe the kind of pain and depravity I am capable of.

    The kind of shit I am capable of concocting would make John Bolton and Gina Haspel look like saints by comparison.

    I can make the Inquisition and Abu Ghraib look like a cakewalk by comparison.
