German NGO seeks arrest warrant for Donald Trump’s deputy CIA director

The Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) has called on German federal prosecutors to issue an arrest warrant against Gina Haspel, the deputy director of the CIA, who was appointed on February 2.

The ECCHR first pressed charges against unknown CIA operatives in December 2014, after the US Senate Select Committee published its report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program. Though she was a clandestine agent at the time, Haspel’s appointment as deputy director meant that she could be identified.

According to the ECCHR writ sent to the prosecutors and published on the group’s website on Wednesday, “some of the already known events can now be attributed to her.” A spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor confirmed to DW that it had received the writ and said it would be evaluating it carefully.

    I’m beginning to think that if Trump Nuked Germany instead of North Korea the world would be a better place.

    Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times between August 4 and 23, 2002. The Senate report recorded that he “vomited, passed out and urinated on himself while shackled … lost consciousness and bubbles began gurgling from his mouth.” Quoting CIA documents, the Senate added: “At times Abu Zubaydah was described as ‘hysterical’ and ‘distressed to the level that he was unable to effectively communicate.'”

    I love it!
    In seriousness, we need a legal procedure that allows us to administratively execute (as in put to death ‘administratively execute’) these high-value terrorists so that the experiences that have cannot be reviled to other terrorists.
    Abu Zubaydah is never going to be an upstanding citizen and can never be let out, so when people like him have been interrogated, they should be quietly executed, with their execution never officially acknowledged.
    I know, it sounds horrible, but so is expecting that Muslims whom are trying to usher in the next dark age benefit from ideas out of the enlightenment.
    We need to be comfortable in thinking of such people as not-quite-human.
