Must Read

More than 100 retired military officers sent a letter to the Senate Monday saying they are “deeply concerned” by the nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA.

Their letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee calls for an examination of Haspel and any ties she may have had during her CIA career to harsh 9/11-era interrogation techniques that many consider torture. The committee has scheduled a May 9 hearing on her nomination.

“We urge you to examine closely the full extent of Ms. Haspel’s involvement in the rendition, detention, and interrogation program and, should you find that she played any role in carrying out, supervising, or directing the torture or abuse of people in U.S. custody, or the destruction of evidence relating to these activities, we urge you to reject her nomination,” the 108 retired offers wrote in the letter.
