Will the Senate confirm career CIA officer Gina Haspel to be the Agency’s next director? Sens. McCain and Paul, who don’t often agree, have both vowed to oppose Haspel due to her past involvement in torture and cover-up of torture. They have a good point. But is there a bigger issue in play here? If we are going to have the kind of government agency that the CIA has become – fomenting coups, arming jihadists, paramilitary activities, etc. – maybe, and sadly, she’s just the right person for the job!
