I bet liberals will be ecstatic that the first woman ever has been chosen to be the head of the CIA, oh wait- never mind, they only care about that when it’s airheaded liberally progressive women.
I am happy how Trump once again gives socialists the middle finger once again by placing another female in charge of a very important cabinet position. It shows he chooses the best person for the job no matter their gender. I am still wrapping my head around the ouster of Rex Tillerson.
From what I am listening to on television today, Haspel is a career employee who knows the ropes and has been battle tested so this is a great choice.
Gina Haspel was sworn in as the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency on February 7, 2017. In this position, she assists the D/CIA in managing intelligence collection, analysis, covert action, counterintelligence, and liaison relationships with foreign services.
Ms. Haspel is a career intelligence officer, having joined the CIA in 1985. She has extensive overseas experience and served as Chief of Station in several of her assignments. In Washington, she has held numerous senior leadership positions, including as Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service, Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service for Foreign Intelligence and Covert Action, and Chief of Staff for the Director of the National Clandestine Service.
Ms. Haspel is the recipient of numerous awards including the George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism; the Donovan Award; the Intelligence Medal of Merit; and the Presidential Rank Award, the most prestigious award in the federal civil service.
When Haspel was selected as deputy director of the agency in February 2017, it was pointed out by a number of folks that she oversaw a CIA program known to use brutal interrogation tactics on terrorism suspects, including putting people in coffins and depriving them of sleep, according to The New Yorker.
I don’t know if that is true or not but I am also one who believes in the torture of an enemy combatant who has killed Americans, leave no stone unturned. If you are big enough to kill Americans, you should be eligible for whatever is thrown at you at without prejudice.
Only socialists/progressives want to save individuals who want to harm Americans, which I have never gotten over.
SOUND OFF in the comment section how you feel about this switch in the State and CIA departments.
