If you hit the link..you will see the entire story..why post this now?

Gina Haspel, new pick for CIA Director, was part of overseeing this totally illegal program.. Torture is illegal. !! If she was partially in charge, then this needs to be discussed. How much control did she have? What were the orders?..Who gave them? How did she fit into the program..etc, etc, etc,

On Tuesday morning, the Senate intelligence committee released an executive summary of its years-long investigation into the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. President George W. Bush authorized the so-called “enhanced interrogation” program after the 9/11 attacks. The United States government this week has warned personnel in facilities abroad, including US embassies, to be ready in case protests erupt in response.

The full report includes over 6,000 pages and 35,000 footnotes. You can read the executive summary here. Here are some of the lowlights:

2. What Trump has done is to reopen this whole ugly part of the Iraq War.

Yes, there will be someone else after this person, but worse than this?..Did she oversee this program?. How much control or participation was she involved in?.....right now, there is a discussion about this in the General Discussion forum..that discussion be found at link below...The ACLU is demanding that all of this be exposed if Gena Haspel, is to be appointed as head of CIA. What was her role in torture?
