CIA changes orientation ... methods of work
So, we have already seen the black president, the state secretary-women is already a routine, a little bit have not seen the woman president of the United States. Did not work out. But for the first time, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, suggested appointing a woman to the post of director of the CIA, a world-famous intelligence agency whose image is always strongly connected with the courageous image of the “knight of the cloak and dagger”.
It is said that this is again / again / as always nothing good threatens us, because it is the so-called “hawk”. However, there is in her biography and something interesting that may hint at the official course of the CIA in the methods of work ...
Gina Cherie Haspel (Gina Cheri Haspel) was born on October 1, 1956. At the age of 29 she went to work in intelligence.
During the first years of service, Haspel saw many sights of many parts of the world, as they say, was engaged in “operational tourism”. In addition to numerous short-term business trips, the track record includes 8 years of work in the overseas CIA residences in Ethiopia (1987–1989), Turkey (1990–1992, 2000–2002), Azerbaijan (1996–1998).
After the second long business trip to Turkey, Gina Haspel "lit up" in 2002 in a region that tourists from all over the world associate with Thai massage and other Oriental entertainment for all tastes ... But she didn’t have fun herself, but arranged for "leisure" others, predominantly men, forcibly placed in a secret CIA prison in Thailand, which Haspel led. Among the “entertainment” offered by Gina to his charges, suspected of having links with Al-Qaeda, is “an expanded interrogation technique,” or more simply, torture, the entire list of which was made public through independent media in the mid-2000s.
By the way, it was in the electronic media in November 2016 that the name of Gina Haspel was “spotted” for the first time as an employee of the CIA connected with secret operations, unlawful arrest and torture. As a result of the leak from Langley, a list of almost 50 names that distinguished themselves in the Inquisition was published - from the leadership of the CIA to ordinary executors, drivers and pilots. Where is the whole story now? Most interestingly, I think that she was not just "hushed up", but everyone continued to do what they were doing. It’s like Obama’s promise to close the Guantanamo prison - it’s still there today.Nobody cares.
The diligence and performance of Haspel in the Thai dungeon were seen, and she continues to take the next career tops. In 2003, she headed the José Rodriguez Director of the CIA Counter-Terrorism Center. They worked well together with the new chief, because when he was promoted to the head of the National Agent Intelligence Service, Haspel followed him.
In 2013, the then CIA director John Brennan nominated Haspel for the post of head of the National Intelligence Intelligence Service, and from the end of February to the beginning of May she served as head of this structure. However, the appointment did not follow because of the scandal with the destruction in 2005 of video materials testifying to the use of torture by intelligence officers in Thailand (the CIA officers carried out a "cleansing" of evidence confirming the violation of human rights by Americans!). Francis Archibald was appointed to the post of the head of the National Agent Intelligence Service, and Haspel was content with the post of his deputy. After a year of work in this position, she again decreases to the UK, as head of the residency (2014-2016).
February 2, 2017 Gina Haspel becomes Deputy Director of the CIA.By the way, in the same 2017, the European Center for Constitutional Rights and Human Rights appealed to the German Prosecutor's Office with a request to issue a warrant for the arrest of Gina Haspel in the case of torture of terrorist suspects. The reason for this demand was the report of the notorious human rights organization Amnesty International, in which it was stated that Haspel was involved in torture in the secret CIA prison in Thailand and the destruction of evidence about them. Since then, nothing more has been heard about it ... apparently the Europeans were sent by the Americans ... far away and for a long time.
Today she is a candidate for the post of director of the CIA. A thrilling career from an ordinary employee to the head of the most powerful intelligence in the world. So, you see, she may also be threatened at the Oval Office in the White House
In addition, experts expect further deterioration in relations between Russia and the United States after the appointment of the current CIA director Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. According to their forecasts, the situation in Syria and in the Donbass can become tense. When he was director of the CIA, he repeatedly accused the Russian Federation of “interfering in the American electoral process” and “of attacking” Ukraine.
“It doesn’t matter whether it’s Russian or Soviet, but we still face the threat posed by the Russians ... We have to push back, beat it, work in order to make the situation more painful for them,” he said in an interview with Washington Free Beacon in July 2017.
Before Donald Trump appointed him director of the CIA on January 23, 2017, Mike Pompeo was three times elected to the US House of Representatives from the 4th Kansas constituency. During his time in Congress, he was on the House Committee on Intelligence and on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. In 1998, he founded Thayer Aerospace and Private Security, which produced components for the defense industry.
In 2006, Pompeo became president of Sentry International, a company producing equipment for the oil industry. Both companies worked closely with Koch Industries, a conglomerate of companies from the Koch Brothers, one of the main sponsors of the extreme right wing of the Republican Party.
