Pompeo is already known to have met with Russian spies and the new head of the CIA was the architect of the torture program and the lead on destroying evidence of illegal acts at black box sites, but sure, they're wonderful people.


Don't these people have to be confirmed by congress? I know it is probably fait accompli, but I would love to get some of trumps cronies under oath.

edit:
Never mind. I found it. I thought this was immediate, but it looks like Tillerson's last day is March 31

How bad have things sunk over there that you are now giving war criminals, charged with torture, pats on the back and promotion after promotion?

Although I'm sure she will be granted diplomatic immunity, technically she will be arrested if she sets foot in the EU. Rightly so.

The first pdf found in the link below spells out what a POS she is. No problem watching prisoners, illegally held in a secret CIA prison in Thailand, never charged with any crime, being repeatedly waterboarded....

“On July 15,2002, a cable providing details on the proposed interrogation phase stated that only the DETENTION SITE GREEN chief of Base(Gina Haspel) would be allowed to interrupt or stop an
interrogation in process, and that the chief of Base would be the final decisionmaking authority as to whether the CIA's interrogation techniques applied to AbuZubaydah would be discontinued.”). Gina Haspel failed to make use of this power.Instead she watched as “Zubaydah vomited, passed out and urinated on himself while shackled … lost consciousness and bubbles began gurgling from his mouth[during a waterboarding session],”


http://www.ecchr.eu/en/our_work/interna ... rmany.html

Zubaydah? After 83 waterboardings ie.drownings, he is held in guantanamo. 16 years in total. Never charged.

Haspel holds one of the most powerful positions in the world.

Yet she tortured some folks....

Unrelated, but kinda.

This too...reports out of Russia

Are you even familiar with the actual truth? I agree when it comes to Haspel as a horrible choice, but then you have to parlay that into some conspiracy-laden fake flag bullshit about the US and Syria according to more Russian drivel. Why? I just shows how drymounting gullible you are when the music appeals to your ear regardless of the truth.

Everytime I post something, you pop up, put me down and swear at me.

Instead of constantly being so concerned about me, howzabout you take a good look at You?

Your latest gripe is I parlayed( your term, I referred to them as unrelated...) two stories together??!!

Part II

BEWARE

THE REUTERS LINK MAY CONTAIN CONSPIRACY-LADEN FAKE FLAG BULLSHIT ABOUT THE US AND SYRIA.

If ultimately true, the ramifications are very scary indeed. America needs to drymount off out of the ME and take all its military bases with it. Seriously.

(normally called a false flag but gopher-mountain likes to make up his own cute names for things...lets let it slide, shall we?

Hey (as I pop up) you're nothing but a drymounting Russian shill who's more than happy to support a despot like Assad (as I put you down) so why don't just drymount off with the pro-Putin bullshit and crawl back into your cave. You're rants do nothing but feed you're drymounting deranged Anti-American ego (as I swear at you...)

Now drymount off :pint:

Hey look KomradX has some witty criticism for us Hillary voters. So you can't grasp the concept that you're pointing fingers at people that didn't vote for Trump and by proxy, don't like the fact that Trump is elevating this woman.

Did you think Mistersmith's post was in some way an endorsement and we are congratulating ourselves and patting ourselves on the back that this person, who tortured people, is now being rewarded with the CIA?

You're the idiot who kept saying that Trump isn't that bad and that you couldn't understand why we would for Hillary (evil incarnate right?) over him. If she had been elected, neither one of these people would be in the cabinet or in high levels of government. So what's your point here? We should not have voted for Trump? :roll:

Most of us actually agree with your assessment on this, so quit criticizing. We didn't vote for him; Know your audience or quit being a Troll (the most likely option here) or both, MORON!
