Trump CIA nominee Gina Haspel being grilled by Democrats for being too tough on terrorist such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
President Trump’s nominee for CIA chief Gina Haspel is facing a grilling from Democrats for being too tough on Terrorist. The pacifist Democrats are angry that under Haspel’s direction Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was waterboarded.
For those of you who do not remember or are not old enough to have been around then Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the chief architect of the 9/11 attacks on America.
Mohammed was captured on March 1, 2003 in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi by a combined operation of the CIA. He is being held at Guantanamo Bay detention center awaiting trial. Haspel is under fire for being aware of this scumbag being waterboarded. This is what is wrong with letting Democrats have power over the country and agencies such as the CIA.
“CIA has learned some tough lessons, especially when asked to tackle missions that fall outside our expertise,” acting CIA director Gina Haspel told the Senate intelligence committee. “For me, there is no better example of implementing lessons learned than what the agency took away from the detention and interrogation program.”
“It is important to recall the context of those challenging times immediately following 9/11,” she said. “Having served in that tumultuous time, I can offer you my personal commitment, clearly and without reservation, that under my leadership, CIA will not restart such a detention and interrogation program.”
This may put Haspel at odds with President Trump. When asked during the campaign what he would do with terrorist Trump said he would do waterboarding and maybe “a hell of a lot worse.
