USA: Protesters denounce CIA nominee Haspel over torture allegations

Scores of protesters gathered outside the Hart Senate office in Washington DC on Wednesday to protest against US President Donald Trump's CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel, during her confirmation hearing by the Senate Intelligence Committee. Protesters held signs and banners reading: 'Prosecution not Promotion' and chanted slogans such as: 'Gina should be doing time, waterboarding is a crime... Еще.' «To confirm her is to say that we are not a nation of laws or our stated values that even in the United States you can get away with torture with no consequence,» a protester said. Gina Haspel, acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), had to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee before being sworn in as director. Before receiving the green light by the committee, Haspel has to answer to questions regarding her 'classified' role in the CIA and her alleged ties with enhanced interrogation techniques and torture in the past. Haspel is accused of condoning the use of waterboarding on detainees in Thailand back in 2002.
