Disturbing & Disqualifying

I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country and has devoted her professional life to its service and defense.  However, Ms. Haspel's role in overseeing the use of torture by Americans is disturbing.  Her refusal to acknowledge torture's immorality is disqualifying.  I believe the Senate should exercise its duty of advice and consent and reject this nomination.
