We Still Don’t Know What Gina Haspel Really Knew About the CIA’s Torture Program 

Adam Driver in THE REPORT
In The Report, Adam Driver plays Dan Jones, a dogged Senate investigator.

From VICE, which produced The Report, the new movie about the CIA’s torture program.

“I was not even read into the interrogation program until it had been up and running for a year,” Haspell told the Committee. But Haspel’s claims raised more than a few eyebrows. For one, the CIA began its torture program in the summer of 2002. By late 2002, Haspel was overseeing waterboarding at a black site detention center in Thailand, one of a number of countries exposed in a 2005 Washington Post report as territories being used for torture by the US to dodge judicial oversight.

Later reporting would reveal that Haspel also played a role in the CIA’s destruction of 92 tapes related to the CIA’s torture program. As such, the idea that the 34-year CIA vet wasn’t fully versed in—if not directly involved in—the program has long strained credulity.

  1. That [EXPLETIVE DELETED should be in prison for creating terrorists.
    Terrorism is similar to pearl production …. you get a grain of irritation and use it to create layer after layer of support, which soon feeds itself. Remove the grain of irritation (ISRAEL) and the pearl of terrorism would quit growing and melt away. How do you remove the irritation? Quit giving Israel weapons and money. Within 5 minutes Israel would “learn” to live in harmony with it’s “semitic brothers” ….
    The big lie about killing a ISIS leader like Al-Baghdadi is that you have accomplished anything in fighting a war against ‘terrorism’. You can’t fight a war on terrorism because leadership keeps changing and adapting.
    Short on conducting genocide, the blood and treasure of any empire is dissipated in fake wars like this. Afghanistan is a case in point, the British Empire was the first example, and the USSR followed with failure and we learned nothing. Hubris and idiocy.
    Bin Laden allegedly quoted the following passage: “If I were president, I could stop terrorist attacks against the United States in a few days. Permanently. I would first apologize – very publicly and sincerely – to all the widows and orphans, the impoverished and the tortured, and the many millions of other victims of American imperialism. Then I would announce to every corner of the world that America’s global military interventions have come to an end.” The quote is from Blum’s 2004 book Freeing the World to Death: Essays on the American Empire,
    In 2001 there were a few hundred terrorists, mostly just barefoot illiterates with small bases in Afghanistan and Somalia with NO presence in Iraq. Now, thanks to the superior war fighting skills and knowledge of the Military Geniuses in the Pentagon there are tens of thousands with strongholds in Libya, Nigeria, Yemen, Somalia, Syria/Iraq, Afghanistan,Pakistan, etc.
    Thanks to Abu Graihb,Guantanamo, Secret Dungeons out of the Feudal Dark Ages ……… Thanks to OUR misconduct and stupidity.
    Terrorism is CRIMINAL not “warfare” and must be handled as criminal in order or it will matastise. This is proven by the complete and total failure of America’s “war on terror”
    The entire purpose of terrorism is to provoke an OVER reaction by the target …..in order to create sympathy and allies for your cause. As we have seen since 9/11 ….. they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. We have created terrorist recruits everywhere thanks to Abu Graihb, Guantanamo,torture.
