Trump Should Withdraw Nomination of Gina Haspel

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

Two dozen former U.S. intelligence officers urge President Trump to rescind Gina Haspel’s nomination to lead the CIA, citing torture that she oversaw while supervising a black site prison, as well as her role in destroying evidence.

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

SUBJECT: Request to Withdraw Nomination of Gina Haspel

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


#2

He should, but you know he won’t.


#3

Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity has consistently shown both integrity and judgment in choosing which issues to pursue. I have come to value them as a body of wise counsel for our nation and thank them for their principled contributions to the public narrative.


#4

Lets hope the day he received this letter that it was a “big boy” day for Trump. If not PonyBoy’s comment above will be right on target.


#5

Trump, Haspel, and nearly all of Trump’s voters who have not abandoned him are kindred spirits on the torture issue. They consider any questioning of torture to be fake news at best and treasonous at worst.

Trump will stop eating cheeseburgers before he stops promoting Haspel.


#6

Exactly. VIPS would be better off describing exactly how the National Security State operates in detail and suggest ways to organize to weaken it.


#7

The good news is that he’ll probably choke on one pretty soon.


#8

I think this is the heart of the matter.

It is why the destabilization of the Middle East and other countries on different continents continues.

Endless war - endless profits.
