USA: CIA chief nominee's Senate hearing interrupted by protesters

Two hecklers interrupted the questioning of acting Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Gina Haspel, accusing her of being a «torturer», in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. In two separate incidents, protesters could be heard shouting «bloody Gina» and «waterboarding», before being forcibly removed from the chamber by Capitol police. Haspel has been under fire for her role at a US... Еще intelligence «black site» in Thailand in late 2002, where interrogators used techniques widely regarded as torture. Gina Haspel became the Acting Director of the CIA after Mike Pompeo left the position to become the US Secretary of State. Haspel has already received US President Donald Trump's nomination, but she must first be confirmed by the Senate. If confirmed, she would become the first female director of the CIA.
