Soros's ProPublica makes a major, embarrassing correction: The high-and-mighty leftwing investigative reporting outfit erroneously reported that CIA nominee Gina Haspel tortured some terrorist in a Thai prison. https://t.co/1xIu2KVBDt b— American Thinker (@amthinker) March 16, 2018
ProPublica, the high-and-mighty investigative-reporting foundation financed by George Soros, Herbert and Marion Sandler, the Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation and other leftwing elitist moneybags, has been forced to issue an embarassing correction to one of its vaunted investigative reports.... Meanwhile, it's nice to see the haughty Soros-financed outfit, with its big Pulitzer prize and Olympian mien, cut down a peg, just as stupid as the average lefty led around by the nose by his prejudices, by what he really wanted the story to be.
“Correction: Trump’s pick to head CIA did NOT oversee waterboarding of Abu Zubaydah.”— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) March 15, 2018
Oops. That’s jussst a bit of a fuck-up.https://t.co/AFIc56YnHu
On Feb. 22, 2017, ProPublica published a story that inaccurately described Gina Haspel’s role in the treatment of Abu Zubaydah, a suspected al-Qaida leader who was imprisoned by the CIA at a secret “black site” in Thailand in 2002.
The story said that Haspel, a career CIA officer who President Trump has nominated to be the next director of central intelligence, oversaw the clandestine base where Zubaydah was subjected to waterboarding and other coercive interrogation methods that are widely seen as torture. The story also said she mocked the prisoner’s suffering in a private conversation. Neither of these assertions is correct and we retract them. It is now clear that Haspel did not take charge of the base until after the interrogation of Zubaydah ended....
