Don't confirm Gina Haspel

In the news - Gina Haspel, nominee to head CIA, sought to withdraw over questions about her role in agency interrogation program

I hope my elected representative do not vote to confirm Haspel as head of the CIA. Why? Because of the torture program she oversaw. As a reporter in one news clip mentioned ... Haspel was very heavily involved in torture .... in one month, for instance, the example is the waterboarding eighty-three times of one individual, kept in a box, and losing one of his eyes. Her excuse for this is was the Nazi/Nuremberg meme that she was just following orders.

Apparently WH press secretary Sarah Sanders thinks Democrats would be hypocrites to oppose her nomination because she's a woman and Dems are for women's rights. This is just another example of the stupidity of Sanders in particular and the Republicans in general. Feminism isn't about supporting any and every woman, now matter who they are and what they have done. It's about men and women being treated equally. If anyone is a hypocrite, it's oh-so-Christian Sanders, the member of a religion whose founder was tortured to death.

Definitely they shouldn't confirm "Cruella DeVille"!
Huckabee-Sanders is trying to play the feminist card without apparently even knowing what it means.

Yeah. It's hard to believe there can't be other agents that would be as qualified for that job as she is, but without that torture problem.

PS - Cruella DeVille - so apt.

It's shocking what people get away with by just calling themselves a Christian - very troubling. 2 Timothy 3:5 "having a form of godliness but denying it's power. Turn away from such as these!"
Same with Feminism, does she really think we're that stupid?

A recent poll showed that something like 70 to 80% of Republicans still support Trump - I think it's those people Sanders is talking to. I'm not sure if they really are that dumb or if they are just cynical.

Ahh, I hadn't thought of that - makes more sense. I just have to remember that when I watch the gong show ;)
