‘Gender parity in torture’: Twitter unimpressed as Maddow celebrates CIA’s all-female leadership
CIA Director Gina Haspel has appointed a fellow female comrade, Cynthia “Didi” Rapp, as deputy director for analysis, making her the highest-ranking analyst at the agency. Elizabeth Kimber was named the first female deputy director for operations in December, joining Dawn Meyerriecks, who has been the agency’s deputy director for science and technology for several years now. As a result, the main branches of the CIA – operations, analysis and science and technology – are now headed by women.
NBC News toasted the agency’s all-female leadership with an article detailing the new “sisterhood of spies”. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow – usually busy hallucinating about Vladimir Putin hiding under her bed – rushed to tweet the story, in an apparent endorsement of the new trifecta of unaccountable girl power.

Soon, dozens of Twitter users swooped in and rained on Maddow’s equality parade, rudely pointing out that the CIA is a cesspool of inhumanity regardless of who presses the clandestine drone strike button. Are these killjoys suggesting that Elizabeth Cady Stanton and other American suffragists weren’t dreaming of one day being able to murder and torture with impunity?
Now women can be recognized as war criminals too! Yay feminism? https://t.co/PN80ukIuoL

Really hope that oppressed women in Muslim nations appreciate that the drone above their heads was sent by empowered women. https://t.co/nurKeRge3c

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our main websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
