Gina Haspel was termed by CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou the “godmother of the torture program.”[1]


After Haspel was nominated to lead the CIA, Quartz magazine quoted a (paywalled) New York Times report that Haspel "played a leading role in running a US torture site abroad and later destroyed the evidence of it."[2] ProPublica reported in 2017 that Haspel personally signed "cables to CIA headquarters that detailed Zubayda’s interrogation."[3]
