DT - It is a tumultuous Tuesday at the White House as President Trump has fired Rex Tillerson, moved CIA Director Mike Pompeo over to Foggy Bottom and in a move that is guaranteed to set off a cavalcade of exploding liberal heads, tabbed a woman as the nation’s top spook. It won’t impress the vengeful feminist fanatics of the #MeToo movement nor appease the Hillary Clinton dead-enders, but veteran intelligence professional Gina Haspel has shattered the glass ceiling at Langley. The historic nature of Haspel’s ascension has not been met kindly by a media – especially CNN – that has become intoxicated from sniffing faded porn star Stormy Daniels’ panties.
Haspel is expected to bring a no-nonsense approach to the CIA after she ran one of the agency’s facilities where suspected terrorists were interrogated in the aftermath of 9/11 and where the practice that has become widely known as “waterboarding” took place. That will allow Democrats and their Never Trumper allies like John McCain and his ilk to contest her appointment on grounds other than sour grapes.
from the CIA website:
"Ms. Haspel is a career intelligence officer, having joined the CIA in 1985. She has extensive overseas experience and served as Chief of Station in several of her assignments. In Washington, she has held numerous senior leadership positions, including as Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service, Deputy Director of the National Clandestine Service for Foreign Intelligence and Covert Action, and Chief of Staff for the Director of the National Clandestine Service. Ms. Haspel is the recipient of numerous awards including the George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism; the Donovan Award; the Intelligence Medal of Merit; and the Presidential Rank Award, the most prestigious award in the federal civil service...."For a woman who has served her country honorably, it didn’t take long for the winged monkeys to launch their smear campaign:
Richard Painter - She’s into torture? Is she bringing her waterboard to the confirmation hearing? Our senators need to make it clear today that this is not happening. No go. What to Know About Gina Haspel, the New Director of the CIA http://for.tn/2FLWGpc via @FortuneMagazine
ProPublica - Trump has just named Gina Haspel as CIA chief. Last year, we reported that Haspel oversaw the waterboarding and other torture of Abu Zubaydah. http://propub.li/2Dpl0Yx

The attack on Haspel once again show that there is nothing that the left hates more than a strong woman who kicks ass and takes names to defend America.
