9/11 Terrorist Wants to Testify Against CIA Chief Nominee

What the hell?

The self-proclaimed mastermind of the 9/11 attacks has asked for permission to share information about Gina Haspel, nominee for CIA director, at her confirmation hearing.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who is held at Guantanamo Bay, has asked a judge if he can share six paragraphs of information, the New York Times says.

Mr Mohammed was tortured by the CIA following his capture in 2003.

Ms Haspel is facing a grilling from senators at the hearing.

Her nomination has faced opposition over her role at a secret CIA prison in Thailand where detainees were waterboarded in 2002.

From a political perspective, the Republicans should allow his testimony. The campaign ads in October about Democratic Senators agreeing with a 9/11 terrorist’s opinion about a nominee would be gold.

    I’m all for Ms. Haspel being confirmed for the position.

    Let him testify!   Can’t wait for Democrats being all sympathetic toward the worst evil America has in prison right now!

    Would show liberals have no stomach to defend the innocent from Islamic evil.
