Trump has once again championed women’s rights by nominating Gina Haspel to be our next CIA Director. She was just confirmed by the Senate as the first ever female director of the CIA.

This is yet another example of the high number of female nominees the Trump Administration has made. Despite the false narrative to the contrary, Trump has always been willing to put strong women in leadership positions.

Gina Haspel is an outstandingly qualified individual and was confirmed with bi-partisan support. My hope is she will clean up the mess in the intelligence community left by the last administration.


Gina Haspel was confirmed Thursday as CIA director, becoming the first woman to lead the agency and overcoming initial Democratic opposition regarding her role in post-9/11 interrogation and detention practices.

The Senate voted 54-45 to confirm President Trump's nominee, with six Democrats supporting and two Republicans defecting. Haspel, whose nomination was endorsed by the Senate Intelligence Committee a day earlier, previously was deputy director and has spent her career with the agency.

Haspel earned emphatic support from GOP lawmakers as well as intelligence community members from both Democratic and Republican administrations.

Awesome. Add the first black female Marine General and it is a great week for women of all races!!!

www.cnn.com...




Marine Corps Col. Lorna Mahlock has been nominated to serve as the first black female brigadier general, the Marine Corps media office said. Mahlock was nominated by President Donald Trump, and Defense Secretary James Mattis announced the nomination on Tuesday. According to his announcement, Mahlock is currently the deputy director of the Operations, Plans, Policies, and Operations Directorate at the Marine Corps headquarters in Washington. Her nomination was one of several by the President that Mattis announced Tuesday.


These are the women the MSM should champion not porn stars.

Women have a way of making terrorists talk. Haspel was instrumental in gaining the intelligence required for killing Osama Bin Laden. (At least I think he was killed. Any photos of the corpse?)

I heard nagging is now against the Geneva Convention. But I'm not sure, I'm too afraid to ask my wife.

Hillary is traveling and telling the world that women need to be given fair consideration, when it comes to promotions. But Not a peep out of this evil woman about Gina Haspel as the first female CIA Director.

Veteran of marriage for 40 years here (yes , to the same woman)

(Once upon a time he was in a hospital with kidney failure. Then the USAF had a good idea of where he was and collapsed an entire mountain . Hard to walk away from either one of those)

I wonder if she is merely next in an endless line of warmongering, psychopathic lunatics that have held the position since the CIAs inception in 1947?...
That terrorist organization is a blight on Mother Earth.

Germany: CIA deputy Gina Haspel must face arrest on travelling to Europe

Gina Haspel Risks Arrest in Europe Because of Her Involvement in Bush Era Torture Program

Gina Haspel should be arrested – not put in charge of the CIA

Please send her to Europe!
Giess we have some CIA torture blacksites left in Romania and Poland, she could live there for free, waterboarding inclusive. Till the end of her ugly days.

But at least she fit´s exactly to what the "U"SA became to, in the last decades!

This will be interesting to watch. Haspel was the CIA's London Station Chief in 2016 when the Brits were helping the Deep State set up Papadopoulos and the "muh Russia" narrative.

First order of business: Rollover on John Brennan.

Sorry...you have something against torturing those that want to kill others via terrorist attacks?

Personally I have no issue with it if it saves lives of innocents.

Similar view on criminals in general. If you dont want to be incarcerated or tortured then maybe...just maybe dont commit a crime or be a terrorist....

No one in Europe is not going to be arresting the director of the CIA.

If you think that is going to happen your naive.

Those types of questions were directly asked by Rand Paul also during confirmation.

USA TODAY - Brennan 2013 versus Haspel 2018

The war on women is alive and well - tow the leftist line or suffer the (sometimes subtle) consequences.....

I don't give a flying flip what race, sex or sexual preference the head of the CIA is, but if they can't give a clear answer to the question of if torture is immoral, they deserve to be thrown in the Potomac with weights around their ankles.
She condones torture, so she's unfit to be there.
I await the usual slings and arrows from idiots who think that torture somehow 'works'.

This shouldn't come as a surprise. I thought it was common knowledge that Trump loves women...

I'm glad she fought through the sexist Dems and their blue glass ceiling!

Finally a woman in the office!

I'd guarantee we have saved more lives by torturing known terrorists and killers than giving them hugs!

MSM having all kinds of Konniption fits over this.
