Gina Haspel's CIA appointment Will Delight Torturers Around the Globe

Sonya Sceats

Donald Trump’s nominee to become the next director of the CIA has ignited great moral anguish in the US, but from Bangkok to London and beyond we should all be alarmed.

From the article:

“…President Trump’s zealous support for torture and Haspel’s reputation for allegedly overseeing it may cause untold human damage, especially if terrorists strike again on US soil and pressure mounts for more torture, in the misplaced hope that this would keep Americans safe.”

History suggests that another “terrorist strike on US soil” is already being planned in some soundproof room in CIA headquarters at Langley to keep the endless war going.

So what can I say - that is really stupid from Trumps side. He takes us to potential war, but not to the great demand.

Just as he has given haters around the world a license to hate and hurt, Trump is giving torturers around the world a license torture.

“She has already promised to follow the law”, we know this is a lie. When told to protect evidence, she destroyed said evidence, a crime. Haspel’s credibility is ZERO.

Not exactly — he’s just renewing the license given to torturers during the first term of The Lying Son-of-a-Bush and, as noted by Sceats above, in effect renewed during the first term of Chicken-Shit O’Bummer.

But . . .  but . . .  everything she did was absolutely legal and thoroughly justified — just ask U.C. Berkeley law professor John Yoo!!
