Senate Confirms "Bloody Gina" to Head the CIA

This is the person the Senate approved.

 From The Intercept:
AN AMERICAN DOCTOR and Naval reserve officer who has done extensive medical evaluation of a high-profile prisoner who was tortured under the supervision of Gina Haspel privately urged Sen. Mark Warner, the vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to oppose Haspel’s confirmation as CIA director, according to an email obtained by The Intercept. 
“I have evaluated Mr. Abdal Rahim al-Nashiri, as well as close to 20 other men who were tortured as part of the CIA’s RDI [Rendition, Detention, and Interrogation] program. I am one of the only health professionals he has ever talked to about his torture, its effects, and his ongoing suffering,” Dr. Sondra Crosby, a professor of public health at Boston University, wrote to Warner’s legislative director on Monday. “He is irreversibly damaged by torture that was unusually cruel and designed to break him. In my over 20 years of experience treating torture victims from around the world, including Syria, Iraq, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mr. al-Nashiri presents as one of the most severely traumatized individuals I have ever seen."

Senators voted 54-44 on the Senate floor to confirm the bloody one. 


  1. But they hate us for our freedoms...

  2. Wikipedia notes that "Haspel is unmarried and has no children."

    1. So she's a bitter, dangerous curmudgeon.

    2. Not so much but is she the new face of ongoing US terrorism ... absolutely!

    3. Paul Hansen: No, her ph is too acidic.
