What’s wrong with Haines?
Haines, Deputy Director of the CIA under Obama, signed off on drone murders and co-wrote the guidelines that blurred the difference between enemy combatants and civilians. She redacted the Senate report on torture from 6,000 pages to a 500-page summary, covering up CIA’s waterboarding. In addition, she overruled the CIA Inspector General in failing to discipline CIA agents who hacked into the computers of Senate investigators. See the script below:
