Particularly troubling, I think, is this quote from her time there, and from the time when the torture was actually occurring. The quote from one of the interrogators says that Gina Haspel said, good job, I like the way you're drooling. This is about Zubaday who, as he was being waterboarded.
It adds to the realism. I'm almost buying it. You wouldn't think a grown man would do that. When you read that, sort of the joyful glee at someone who's being tortured, I find it just amazing that anyone would consider having this woman at the head of the CIA.
And so my opposition to her is over her direct participation and interrogation and her gleeful enjoyment at the suffering of someone being tortured. So, my announcement today is that I will oppose both Pompeo's nomination and Haskell's nomination.
