CIA Officials Testify About Torture For The First Time In History | Neon Nettle

Haspel, who was chosen by Trump as the CIA’s deputy director, is accused of running one of the CIA’s secret detention sites in Thailand and having a direct role in the torture of the defendants. According to a recent article by John Kiriakou, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, Haspel was responsible for allowing some of the most brutal torture methods despite a lack of new information provided by the detainees. Kiriakou also accuses Haspel of directly overseeing the staff in Thailand, including Mitchell and Jessen.

Kiriakou himself served 23 months in prison after pleading guilty to blowing the whistle about Bush administration waterboarding and torture of detainees.According to a recent article by John Kiriakou, a former CIA counterterrorism officer, Haspel was responsible for allowing some of the most brutal torture methods despite a lack of new information provided by the detainees.

As the ACLU notes, “Salim v. Mitchell, however, marks the first time the program’s victims have been able to litigate their claims.” The case hinges on the role of Mitchell and Jessen. Although the two men have not yet been forced to testify, two CIA officials recently gave a deposition that offers a first hand look at the callous disregard for human life that is exhibited by the people making these decisions.
