The Black-Site Past of Gina Haspel, the New C.I.A. Deputy Chief

09 Feb

From 2003 to 2005, Gina Haspel was a senior official overseeing a top-secret C.I.A. program that subjected dozens of suspected terrorists to savage interrogations, which included depriving them of sleep, squeezing them into coffins, and forcing water down their throats. In 2002, Haspel was among the C.I.A. officers present at the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, an Al Qaeda suspect who was tortured so brutally that at one point he appeared to be dead.On Thursday, the Trump Administration announced that Haspel would become the C.I.A.’s new deputy director.
