Nardolillo highlighted Ms. Haspel's three decade career on the front lines of national intelligence as her most critical qualification to properly run the Central Intelligence Agency. "The new Director has had a close up view of her agency from every level of its hierarchy." He noted. "Her testimony in response to repeated hearing questions on enhanced interrogation shows me an important evolution in her policy position." Nardolillo added. He cited her supervisory authority over the Post 9-11 scramble to prevent further attacks on America. "In that time and in that place Ms. Haspel stepped up and did her job. Subsequent postings to ever higher levels of administrative responsibility in the Agency have since shown her that more humane methods of questioning are actually more effective." He concluded. To Nardolillo this makes Haspel's present stance far more sincere than it might have been had she taken it merely as a political expedient.
"I will say that Ms. Haspel's confirmation was tarnished, however, by the opposition to her appointment by both of Rhode Island's Senators." Nardolillo added. "My view is that the President's choice should only be opposed under Senate authority for Advice and Consent when clear legal or ethical failings are present in a nominee." The candidate is fully behind this appointment and vows to use that same yardstick for future nominees, even those which might come from a president of another party.
