Brennan Promotes CIA Agent Who Helped Run Torture Programs

“John Brennan, the man Obama appointed to head the CIA, promoted an undercover agent to be director of the CIA’s clandestine service, despite the fact that she helped run the CIA’s illegal torture and detention program after 9/11 and ‘signed off on the 2005 decision to destroy videotapes of prisoners being subjected to treatment critics have called torture.’  ‘The woman, who remains undercover and cannot be named, was put in the top position on an acting basis when the previous chief retired last month,’ reports The Washington Post.”
