Not defending her by any means, But keep in this was all the way back in the Bush administration when the CIA routinely used torture on suspects around the World. It was Not considered illegal back then. It IS Now. This won't hamper her confirmation at all, BOTH sides are saying the same thing about her this morning. She has Never been the one GIVING the orders to do this Only the one Following her orders. I Hate Trump as much as anyone, but this story is pretty much a nothing burger and irrelevant today.
I know a lot of people will try to rationalize torture, even against the evidence, facts of it being inefficient in getting to the truth. But, one thing most never consider. Someone has to be doing the "enhanced interrogations" and that is how you create a monster. Someone that become devout of empathy and human feelings. A cog in the machine, soulless and uncaring. It's bad enough the results are questionable and often false, it's another that we let human beings become shells of themselves, devoid of humanity.
I duuno, they should probably stick to filming the detainees being beheaded and then show it online for the families to see... oh wait, that's al-Quaeda
I’m a liberal, and I’m just not too concerned with why this is a problem, ultimately these tactics led to positive results being that OBL is dead. The only way you can fight a psychosis is to be more psychotic.
So funny to watch you all blast people who were here before Trump, and then act like everything these people did was for or because of Trump. Next time stand in a mirror and talk to your self.
Does Trump just literally troll people by picking the worst people for any situation? I feel like once he gets arrested, he'll say, "Haha! Got you all!"
Trump couldn't be happier to have a black ops site director as CIA chief. So much so, he will overlook the fact that she is a woman. And the fact that she will join this administration tells us all we need to know about her.
Gina Haspel is a spy veteran who once ran a torture prison in Thailand and destroyed evidence related to the tortures. The prison tortures didn't produce any important Intel (as to be expected since experts have determined torture doesn't work, in addition to being inhumane), but did result in injuries sustained from prisoners sleeping in coffins, water boardings, beatings, and one prisoner lost an eye.
she is a nazi for sure. no one at the CIA can stand her and then she is now running it. trumptard wants her to stop all the investigations on him. which is the reason for this change. they must of found a lot of shit on trumptard
Isn't the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights trying to get the German Federal Public Prosecutor to get an arrest warrant for her? Interesting times.
