Is Torture Immoral or Not? What Say You, Ms. Haspel?

Green Beret and former UFC fighter Tim Kennedy waterboarded himself on Saturday in support of President Trump's nomination of Gina Haspel for CIA director and to prove the controversial interrogation method which he called

Underneath questioning Wednesday in entrance of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Haspel mentioned she wouldn't allow the CIA to restart the tough interrogation program it beforehand ran, including that she did not "imagine that torture works". Many Democrat senators were against Haspel's appointment as she failed to answer questions pertaining to the enhanced interrogation program during the Bush administration.

The CIA's interrogation program is in the spotlight again as Gina Haspel - who once ran a secret Thailand prison that used waterboarding - is poised to become CIA director, if she can get confirmed by the US Senate.

Cheney, who said he's "not one of those people that calls it torture", added: "I supported it wholeheartedly, I still do to this day". Joe Manchin (WV) and Joe Donnelly (IN).

While most Senate Democrats, including Intelligence Committee veterans like Dianne Feinstein, have announced their opposition to Haspel's nomination, their pretensions to oppose torture and demand a higher moral standard in the CIA leadership are belied by their own records.

Haspel's specific role in the program remains classified. "It goes, I think, deeper than that, and that is the foreign policy that we have seen from Mr. Trump".

Moments later, Haspel, however, rushed to clarify that the CIA's methods in general in the aftermath of 9/11 were effective.

Democratic voters can vote for up to four male candidates and up to four female candidates for the state Democratic Committee. The Republicans are Rick Saccone (who lost to Conor Lamb in the nationally watched special election) and Guy Reschenthaler.
