The libs on the Senate Intelligence Committee spent the better part of the Haspel hearing arguing as if they’re defense attorneys for Guantanamo Bay prison detainees so frankly I’d be surprised if some of them didn’t seriously entertain making this happen:
President Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the C.I.A. has revived debate over the agency’s post-Sept. 11 interrogation program and still-murky questions about her involvement. Now, on the eve of her Senate confirmation hearing, a striking voice is trying to join that fray: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
Mr. Mohammed, the principal architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, was captured in March 2003 and tortured by the C.I.A. This week, he asked a military judge at Guantánamo Bay for permission to share six paragraphs of information about Ms. Haspel with the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Ms. Haspel ran a black-site prison in Thailand where another high-level detainee was tortured in late 2002. But it is not known whether she was involved, directly or indirectly, in Mr. Mohammed’s torture. Mr. Mohammed was held in secret C.I.A. prisons in Afghanistan and Poland.
Frankly I’m a little surprised that Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein and other Dems on the panel hyperventilating over Haspel’s nomination haven’t invited Mohammed up from Club Gitmo to share his emotions with the Senate and possibly give him a chance to join the call for Trump’s impeachment.
