    Tillerson recently publically contradicted Trump on the greatesness of Trump's agreement to meet with Kim Jong Un. Probably what sparked it.

    Pompeo? Another MIC/neocon advocate.

    Kushner is likely Trump's handler. He has no experience whatsoever and he's overseeing foreign policy agreements?

    Trump has named Gina Haspel as the new director of the CIA. Haspel was Pompeo’s deputy and will become the first woman to serve as CIA director.

    From 2003 to 2005, Gina Haspel was a senior official overseeing the top-secret CIA torture program RDI (Rendition, Detention, and Interrogation) that included waterboarding, sleep deprivation, and squeezing into coffins of terror suspects. RDI also kidnapped suspects and delivered them to third-party countries to do the dirty work.

    In 2002, Haspel was present at a CIA black site in Thailand when Abu Zubaydah and al-Nashiri were tortured. The torture of Zubaydah was especially horrible and included waterboarding 83 times. At one time he appeared to be dead and doctors “revived” him. Because of the brutal abuse, Zubaydah lost sight in his left eye.
    In 2005, Haspel and her superior Jose Rodriguez decided to destroy the videotapes of the interrogations of Zubaydah and al-Nashiri to prevent Congress from seeing them.

    In 2009, President Obama ordered the closure of the black sites, where torture (in violation with the Geneva convention) was common: https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-...lack-site-past
    And just think: this chick's got a drone fleet now. She'll have no qualms bombing weddings and killing Americans... what's "collateral" when you're MAGA?

    It appears she has strong leadership qualities that impress Trump. Quite historic milestone too.

    Trump CIA pick Gina Haspel helped lead U.S. torture program

    Dylan Stableford
    March 13, 2018

    In a statement, Trump called Haspel’s appointment of the CIA’s first-ever female director “a historic milestone.

    ”Last year, the New York Times noted that she oversaw the torture of the terrorism suspects and “later took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations.”
    Haspel, the Times said, played a “direct role” in the CIA’s “extraordinary rendition program,” in which “captured militants were handed to foreign governments and held at secret facilities, where they were tortured by agency personnel.”

    Come on guys. If trump didn't put the CIA in charge of the military, he wouldn't be able to get any of his liberty agenda done. Just give him some time. I mean, isn't it better to get more neocon fp now so we can have less later? Michael Scheuer will be Secretary of State within a year.

    trump has eliminated the individual mandate, lowered taxes and probably averted nuclear war with Russia. Give him some credit. I swear it's like some people would rather Hillary was president.
















    Partisan politics, misleading or emotional bill titles, and 4D chess theories are manifestations of the same lie—that the text of the Constitution, the text of legislation, and plain facts do not matter; what matters is what you want to believe. From this comes hypocrisy. And where hypocrisy thrives, virtue recedes. Without virtue, liberty dies. - Justin Amash, March 2018

    This is the dumbest thing I've read in years. The threat of war with Russia (nuclear or not) has never been higher since the missile crisis of 1962, but then we had JFK. Trump is no JFK. I'm not even sure Trump better than Dumbya at this point. Other news isn't going well either. John McCain is still alive.

    Supposedly the new CIA director Gina Haspel is pro torture just like Trump promised when he was running for president.

    Quoting CIA documents, the Senate added: "At times Abu Zubaydah was described as 'hysterical' and 'distressed to the level that he was unable to effectively communicate.'" Waterboarding sessions "resulted in immediate fluid intake and involuntary leg, chest and arm spasms" and "hysterical pleas." In at least one waterboarding session, Abu Zubaydah "became completely unresponsive, with bubbles rising through his open, full mouth," it added.
    The ECCHR alleged that Haspel had direct knowledge of the prisoner's treatment, and a cable dated July 15 that year confirmed that as chief of base, only Haspel had the authority to interrupt or stop Zubaydah's interrogation."

    He will probably say something about "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" and since we can't read Trump's mind we won't be able to disprove it any better than he will be able to prove it.
