May 11, 2018 - Professor Deborah Pearlstein says on the ACSblog that during Gina Haspel's hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee considering her nomination to be CIA director, she "declined repeatedly to condemn torture; to make clear she would refuse a presidential order to torture; to take responsibility for her own part in the program’s past or her own role in the destruction of video evidence of the program (videos she testified she never herself watched); to indicate that she thought, by 2007 or even now, that the program should have come to an end; or in any other way to acknowledge that the torture program was not the right thing for America to do."
