Gina Reel: Designated CIA chief wants to stick to torture ban

Donald Trump has nominated Gina Reel as CIA boss. At the hearing in the Senate, she rejected torture methods, which she reportedly had previously applied.

Gina Reel: Designated CIA chief wants to stick to torture ban

The designated CIA boss, Gina Reel, spoke out against resumption of previous torture practices of US foreign intelligence. She wanted to retain ban on torture at CIA without restriction, said reel in a hearing by Senate Intelligence Committee. The activities of service would have to be consistent with American values.

Reel is CIA vice director. According to will of US president Donald Trump, it will be successor to former CIA chief Mike Pompeo, who was sworn in as U.S. Secretary of State in April. If U.S. Senate approves nomination, reel would be first woman at top of US Secret Service.

Reel is controversial because, according to media reports, in year 2002 a US secret prison in Thailand was headed in which detainees were to be tortured by so-called Waterboarding – simulated drowning. A suspect should be subjected to Waterboarding, among or things, 83 times and be locked in a coffin-like box. Later, reels would have been responsible for CIA's destruction of video footage of interrogation. According to time Reel was a leader in torture of terror suspects.

After attacks of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush had allowed an unofficial program that led to arrest of many suspects in secret prisons abroad. US intelligence agents attacked interrogation methods such as Waterboarding, sleep deprivation, incarceration in small crates, solitary confinement, and death threats. Barack Obama finished program after taking office at beginning of 2009.

The 61-year-old reel refused to condemn practices at that time in her hearing. You and your colleagues followed instructions and had "believed in our work". The program provided valuable information and helped prevent furr attacks.

Neverless, she affirmed: "I can assure you, without any restrictions, my personal determination that CIA will not resume such a detention and interrogation programme under my leadership." Even if Donald Trump asked her to do so, she would refuse to re-introduce se techniques to CIA, said reel. Trump had publicly considered in past to re-introduce Waterboarding as an interrogation method.

The CIA had learned some "hard lessons" from experiences of that time and America has now committed itself to a "higher moral standard", said Reeler. You support this standard. The controversial interrogation methods of time were now prohibited by law. "And I absolutely support sobehandelt of prisoners, as law requires."

"Torture must not be rewarded," chanted demonstrators

At end of past weeks, Reelers had reported ir withdrawal to avoid a particularly critical question in Senate and avert possible damage to CIA's reputation. Reel Istseit More than 30 years active for US intelligence service, most time of it as a covert agent.

The Senate's approval is uncertain, because majority is only at 51 to 49 and ill Senator John McCain is absent. The Republican Ryan Paul has already outspokenly spoken out against Reelers, or members of his party want to wait for hearing. No one has been signaling support from Democrats. A vote could be held in middle of next week.

Before start of Senate hearing, visitors protested against reels. "Torture must not be rewarded," chanted visitors, who were immediately led out of hall by security forces.
