Muslim leaders in the United States – including the head of a chapter of an organization named a co-conspirator in a terror-funding plot – are condemning President Trump for his nomination of Gina Haspel as CIA director, contending she’s unqualified because of her participation in “enhanced interrogation techniques” against al-Qaida suspects after the 9/11 attacks.
Haspel was the overseer of a so-called CIA “black site” in 2002 in Thailand, where investigators successfully obtained intelligence from terrorist suspects to prevent further attacks.
The executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations described Haspel as a “torturer,” reported the website Middle East Eye.
Dawud Walid said Haspel’s appointment only benefits recruiters of militant groups to “stir up more anti-Americanism.”post was originally published on this site
