SAVING OUR DEMOCRATIC VALUES-Like millions of my fellow countrymen and women, I have a deep concern about the long-term sustainability of our union and the basic constitutional structures that have preserved it in other times of social upheaval.
MORALITY POLITICS-According to the New York Times, in late 2002, Gina Haspel was dispatched to oversee a secret CIA prison in Thailand code-named Cat's Eye. While she was there, CIA contractors waterboarded al-Qaeda suspects including Abd al-Rahim al-Nashir, the man accused of orchestrating the bombing of the American destroyer U.S.S. Cole off the coast of Yemen in 2000

Let’s review the matter with some objectivity.
