In this May 9, 2018 photo, CIA nominee Gina Haspel testifies during a confirmation hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The Intelligence Committee voted 10-5 to forward her nomination to lead the USA spy agency to the entire Senate, virtually assuring final approval of her nomination.

The confirmation vote by the full Senate could occur before the end of the week.

"Haspel has street cred - she is a 30-year agent who has been part of risky operations all over the world". She requested a transfer to the CIA's Counterterrorism Center in 2001 where she started September 11 of that year, according to the Trump administration. In 2002, she ran a black site in Thailand where waterboarding and other brutal interrogation techniques were used.

The report also detailed how the CIA's medical staff approved of the techniques, like "rectal feeding" or "rectal hydration", which a Central Intelligence Agency official said was a way to have "total control over the detainee". The United States must be an example to the rest of the world, and I support that.

Ms. Haspel has been accused, not by one or two individuals, but by more than 100 military generals and admirals, of directly overseeing torture, and subsequently covering it up and destroying evidence. "It does not matter who is in power, no one is getting the job done and nothing changes". According to him, during his 30-year career she comply with moral, ethical and legal standards. "I think [Haspel] is a great candidate. She has support from field agents and from both political parties".

However, all eight Republicans and two of the seven Democrats earlier expressed support for Haspel. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., and Sen.

Indiana Republican Todd Young tweeted last week that Haspel is "incredibly experienced and qualified", and said he looks forward to supporting her nomination. Rand Paul of Kentucky said he opposes the nomination. McCain is not expected to be in Washington for Haspel's confirmation vote.

Yates wins Stage 11 to extend Giro lead
The stage was raced on a hilly route over 156 kilometres from the central city of Assisi across to Osimo near the Adriatic coast. The stage crossed through the hometown of Italian cyclist Michele Scarponi who was killed in a road accident a year ago.

A handful of senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee voted against President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA Wednesday.

Notice that she makes no mention of her role nor makes any apology for it.

"I don't approve of torture, but it is necessary for national security and to protect our citizens", he added.

U.S. Rep. John Faso, R-19, approves Haspel's nomination, he said Tuesday. "The objections to her nomination amount to 20/20 hindsight".

"I believe that she will be a strong advocate for the agency's workforce, and an independent voice who can and will stand up on behalf of our nation's intelligence community", he said.

It will make Haspel, a 61-year-old Russian Federation specialist, the first-ever woman to lead the CIA, and the first director who spent an entire career in the agency's clandestine services.

"We had been charged with making sure the country wasn't attacked again", she said.
