CIA director nominee Gina Haspel is quizzed on interrogation program, shuts down false report

Glenn Beck

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) questioned CIA director nominee Gina Haspel in a Senate hearing Wednesday on a report that has since been corrected.

Feinstein asked Haspel about claims from the author John Rizzo, a former CIA lawyer who wrote the book "Company Men." Rizzo said in his book that Haspel ran an interrogation program at a CIA site.

"Senator, I am so pleased you asked me that question," Haspel said, noting that she did not run the program and that fact has already been checked. "If you have your staff check, Mr. Rizzo has issued a correction."

On today's show, Glenn pointed out the irony of Haspel being under fire for supposedly being involved in an interrogation program.

"She is being questioned by the people who were, let's be honest, fine about all of this right after 9/11," Glenn said.
