John Kiriakou: Haspel is the worst pick for the CIA director

Gina Haspel’s nomination to head CIA has been controversial from the start because of her role in the CIA’s abuse of terrorist suspects, which won her nicknames such as ‘Bloody Gina’ and the ‘torture queen.’ With days until Haspel’s Senate confirmation hearing for the directorship of the CIA, the Trump administration is doing everything to push her through.

How the CIA Renditioned a Radical Cleric (Excerpt from ‘The Italian Job’)

Watch Full Length – http://bit.ly/1Pttu3c

Sabrina De Sousa is one of nearly two-dozen CIA officers who was prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced by Italian courts in absentia in 2009 for the role she allegedly played in the rendition of a radical cleric named Abu Omar. It was the first and only criminal prosecution that has ever taken place related to the CIA’s rendition program, which involved more than 100 suspected terrorists and the assistance of dozens of European countries.

But De Sousa, a dual US and Portuguese citizen, said she had nothing to do with the cleric’s abduction and has been wrongly accused. For the past decade, she has been on a global quest to clear her name. VICE News met up with De Sousa in Lisbon, Portugal — and other key figures connected to the case — for an exclusive interview about the steps she’s now taking in an effort to hold the CIA accountable for one of the most notorious counterterrorism operations in the history of the agency.

In this excerpt, De Sousa explains why she’s continued to fight this battle to clear her name for almost a decade, and tells VICE News why she thinks the charges against her are groundless.

An Apology to Every Single American (Excerpt from VICE News’ Interview with Michael Morell)

When al Qaeda terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, Michael Morell was with President George W. Bush at an elementary school in Florida as the CIA’s daily briefer. The events that unfolded on that fateful day are just some of the many national security disasters that Morell, the former acting director of the CIA, has been at the center of since 9/11. The veteran intelligence official has spent much of his 30-year career out of the public eye, but he’s stepping out of the shadows to talk about his new book The Great War of Our Time: The CIA’s Fight Against Terrorism — From al Qa’ida to ISIS.

VICE News met with Morell at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California, and spoke with him about the Iraq war, the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation” program, and what he refers to as “the new era of terrorism.”

In this excerpt, Morell admits that the intelligence the CIA produced about Saddam Hussein’s nuclear intentions, which paved the way to war, was flawed. Morell is one of the first CIA officials to come clean about this fact, and to apologize for getting the intelligence wrong.

How the CIA Waged War in Afghanistan

Robert Grenier is a former CIA station chief for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the man who was tapped by the CIA and White House to direct the first America-Afghan war following the attacks of 9/11. In his new book, 88 Days to Kandahar, Grenier discusses how he forged alliances with warlords and Pakistani intelligence operatives to execute a campaign that defeated the Taliban in Afghanistan’s southern region.

Following his work in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Grenier returned to Washington, DC, and was tasked with overseeing the CIA’s intelligence operations and analysis in Iraq prior to the 2003 US invasion.

VICE News visited Grenier at his home in Virginia to talk about America’s longest war, the CIA’s use of “enhanced interrogation techniques,” and the rise of the Islamic State.

Ex-CIA Officer John Kiriakou: “The Government Turned Me Into a Dissident”

In 2007, John Kiriakou became the first Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) official to publicly confirm that agency interrogators waterboarded a high-value detainee, terrorism suspect Abu Zubaydah — a revelation that had previously been a closely guarded secret.

Five years after this unauthorized disclosure to ABC News, the veteran CIA officer pleaded guilty to leaking to journalists the identity of certain individuals who were involved with the CIA’s rendition, detention, and interrogation program. He was sentenced to two and a half years in federal prison.

VICE News caught up with Kiriakou for a wide-ranging interview just a few days after he was released from prison. He detailed how his CIA training became a technique for survival behind bars, and how the government turned him into a “dissident.”
