Gina Haspel, the CIA’s current deputy director, goes before the Senate intelligence committee on Wendesday for confirmation as the CIA’s director. Shane Harris of the Washington Post recently produced a lengthy and detailed profile of Haspel, who was deeply involved in the CIA’s coercive interrogation program in the years that followed 9/11. Harris joins Benjamin Wittes to discuss the nomination, the cases for and against Haspel, and what we can expect when she faces the committee tomorrow.
