May 9th Press Conference Opposing Haspel's Confirmation

On May 9th 2018, TASSC International joined Sen. Tina Smith (MN), Rep. Barbara Lee (CA), Rep. Hank Johnson (GA), the Center for Victims of Torture (CVT), and other human rights organizations, to oppose the confirmation of Gina Haspel as the Director of CIA. Her involvement in torture programs makes her unfit for this position. TASSC believes that torture is immoral and cannot be justifies by any means. We condemn all acts of torture and the attempts to destroy evidence in which Gina Haspel was involved in. By confirming her as the Director of CIA, it will send a message to the World that torture is acceptable.
