CIA whistleblower 'sickened' by Trump's new CIA pick Gina Haspel

As It Happens

John Kiriakou says there's a "sick irony" to the fact that he went to prison for exposing the CIA's use of waterboarding, while the woman in charge gets a promotion. (Correction: In this this interview, guest John Kiriakou states that Gina Haspel oversaw a black site CIA prison while suspected al-Qaeda extremist Abu Zubaydah was waterboarded. It has since come to light that she did not take charge of the prison until after the interrogation of Zubaydah ended. However, waterboarding did continue at that site while she was in charge.)
