So Who Is CIA Dir. Nominee Gina Haspel?

As Ming alerted us in the comments:

“A fascism two-fer. Pompeo for secretary of state and Haspel for Director of the CIA. In case she’s not on your radar screen, Haspel was one of the central figures that ran a secret torture prison in Thailand and carried out an order to cover up torture crimes by destroying videotapes.”

Oh, sweet Jeebus, no. And it is even worse than that (emphasis mine):

“While running a CIA prison in Thailand, dubbed a “black site,” Haspel oversaw the torture of two terrorism suspects and her name was on a cable giving instructions to destroy video evidence documenting their interrogations, according to the Times. One of the suspects was reportedly waterboarded 83 times in one month.”

She shouldn’t be the CIA Director, she should be behind bars for war crimes.

    One of the things that totally radicalized me as an immigration lawyer, back when all this shit was going down, was the realization in handling some of my asylum cases in immigration court that some of the t hings I was claiming were foreign government torture of my clients were less painful that what we were doing to our “worst of the worst” detainees. We bred war criminals during that era, and now they are being rewarded,

    I “waterboarded” myself. It was just a test. I know, I know, retirement gets boring at times. Anyroad, in the shower, I put a wet washcloth over my nose & mouth, tightly. Stood under the spray. It was a most scary, horrifying experience. Now imagine, the prisoners can’t just remove the cloth, and walk away.
