Jose Rodriguez for CIA Chief?
Rodriguez directed the National Clandestine Service and "helped develop the CIA black sites, secret prisons operated in foreign countries where interrogators used a range of torture tactics, including the use of 'waterboarding'," The Intercept writes...
Rodriguez is also infamous for destroying 92 tapes of CIA personnel torturing detainees. "I was just getting rid of some ugly visuals that could put the lives of my people at risk," the torture architect said in defense of the decision, according to his book published in 2012.
Other Bush officials that may snag positions in the new Trump administration include Stephen Hadley as Secretary of Defense, and Chris Christie as Attorney General.
Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton sponsors the return of waterboarding, claiming that the technique "isn't torture."
