Today’s Action: Stop “Bloody” Gina Haspel’s nomination — the vote is tomorrow!

Gina Haspel’s confirmation hearing for CIA director is expected tomorrow…and with that vote, a statement about whether or not our Congress condones torture. But outcry from progressives and anti-torture advocates is so loud that Haspel herself tried to withdraw her own nomination last week. Today is our last chance to flood the phone lines.

Haspel oversaw the brutal waterboarding of Abu Zubaydah (83 times in three weeks) and countless others during the Bush era — and then destroyed the evidence of the CIA’s inhumane interrogation techniques.

So what can we expect with a Haspel confirmation? Look no further than the man who nominated her. “I would bring back waterboarding, and I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding,” said Trump on the campaign trail.

Trump is sending a clear signal with Haspel’s nomination: bring on the torture. We cannot allow the CIA to be led by such inhumane and intentionally-violent leadership.

Call or email your Senators today and demand they reject the nomination of Gina Haspel for CIA director.

What’s more — CIA torture was not only inhumane, it was completely ineffectual, as determined by the Senate Intelligence Committee Report on Torture.

The GOP has sprung to Haspel’s defense, claiming she was simply following orders during an era that earned her the nickname “Bloody Gina” at the CIA. In doing so, they invoke the “Nuremberg defense” used by Nazi criminals who committed unspeakable acts of torture and mass murder.

We have a moral and legal obligation to ensure our country does not fall back in our march toward human decency. Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they block Gina Haspel’s nomination for CIA director. Abu Zubaydah lost an eye under CIA torture. Let us now keep ours open.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding Trump fire EPA chief Scott Pruitt, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
