Trump names #GinaHaspel as new Director of the CIA.

From 2003 to 2005, Gina Haspel led a top-secret #CIA program that subjected suspects to savage interrogation tactics incl. sleep deprivation, squeezing them into coffins, and waterboarding.

Gina Haspel oversaw the torture of terrorism suspects and took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations at a secret prison in Thailand. nytimes.com/2017/02/02/us/…
Civil rights groups in Germany once pushed their government to arrest Gina Haspel for human right violations. This is our country's new CIA Director. voanews.com/a/group-asks-g…
Article 5 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights clearly states that “no one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment.”

The elevation of Gina Haspel sends the wrong message to the world regarding our position on torture.
