Say No To Waterboarder Gina Haspel And Trump

by SNS Wednesday, May. 09, 2018 at 2:01 PM

Reasons to ask senators to vote against waterboarding torturer Gina Haspel

The women's movement

has never said the

world needs more women

serial killers.

Nor does it need waterboarding

torturers to head the CIA

If Gina Haspel were a waterboarding Japanese

officer after WW2, she would have beeen one

of several thousand illegally tried and murdered

by Douglas MacArthur for that or similar actions.

Senator John McCain has said that those who torture combatants of other countries endanger every American soldier

through blowback.

Gina Haspel, waterboarder torturer, was nominated by Trump,

torture advocate, to head the CIA. MSNBC reported on the 8th of May that Khalid Sheik Mohammed was

waterboarded 183 times. He was denied sleep for a week,

as he was chained to the ceiling with his hands above

his head . He was given forced enemas,

beaten, threatened with power drills

and guns. He was probably kept naked.

Others were immersed in cold water, made to thirst.

Abu Ghraib types of torture such as rapes, insults,

beatings were visited upon them by the agency

which actually planned the 9 11 2001 bombing

of the WTC in concert with

the government of Israel.

Please call your senators and tell

them to vote against the confirmation

of Gina Haspel.

When Gina Haspel was asked to send the tapes of the torture to Congress, she, scofflaw, denied the request and destroyed the

evidence. She knew all along that

torture was illegal.

Other advocates of torture: Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo,

Alan Dershowitz, Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote

briefs supporting torture in a lower court, John Bolton (former

meat lobbyist), and former CIA heads Leon Panetta, John Brennan, McLoughlin. These people are opposed

by all the civiilized world.
