Deputy Director of the CIA with “extensive role” in torturing
Trump No. 13: CIA Director Mike Pompeo has announced that Gina Haspel was selected by Trump to be Deputy Director of the CIA. Mrs. Haspel was “directly involved in its controversial interrogation program” and had an “extensive role” in torturing detainees. Even more troubling, she “had run a secret prison in Thailand” – part of the CIA’s network of “black sites” – “where two detainees were subjected to waterboarding and other harsh techniques.”
After all that, she played a vital role in the destruction of interrogation videotapes that showed the torture of detainees both at the black site she ran and other secret agency locations. The concealment of those interrogation tapes, which violated both multiple court orders as well the demands of the 9/11 Commission and the advice of White House lawyers, was condemned as “obstruction” by Commission Chairs Lee Hamilton and Thomas Keane.
This should not come as much of a surprise given that Pompeo himself has said he is open to resurrecting Bush-era torture techniques. In 2008 Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, was forced to withdraw from the running because of his support for some of those tactics only to be confirmed in 2013.
