President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the CIA faced a tough grilling Wednesday morning during her confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Gina Haspel, 61, tried to assure senators she would not return to the tactics the agency used shortly after the 9/11 attacks. “I would not allow CIA to undertake activity that I thought was immoral, even if it was technically legal,” Haspel said. “I would absolutely not permit it.” Haspel, a 33-year veteran of the agency, ran a covert detention site in Thailand where terror suspects were waterboarded.
