For the first time in U.S. history, CIA Director should be a woman

The U.S. Senate approved the candidacy of the new Director of the Central intelligence Agency. This structure for the first time in the history of America can lead the woman — Gina Haspel, devoted to work in the CIA for 33 years.

After the appointment of Mike Pompeo head of the U.S. Department of state acting Director of the CIA was precisely Haspel, which at that time held the position of Deputy. Today, may 17, the Committee on intelligence of the Senate supported her candidacy by a majority of votes (10 vs 5). While Gina Haspel appointed acting Director of the CIA. If the decision support and other members of the Senate, the first woman Director of the intelligence Directorate will be established in the position permanently.

It would seem, who does not like people with many years of experience best suited to this post? But in the biography of veteran us intelligence has a clause that outraged many human rights defenders. Haspel allegedly operated secret prisons in which practised torture. Some believe these methods are inhumane, but no one knows exactly what happened in the secret detention centres, as Haspel personally gave the order to destroy the video evidence.

But there are people who defend her. For example, the green beret of the US army Tim Kennedy decided to demonstrate one of the so-called torture, laying on his page in the social network movie, which it for 45 minutes with breaks pour a stream of water. The military thus decided to show that in such methods of questioning there is nothing wrong.
