View host Whoopi Goldberg used the hearings on Trump CIA nominee Gina Haspel to criticize the CIA last week. She used the word torture to describe enhanced interrogation and suggested Trump should be waterboarded. One former CIA interrogator fired back on FOX and Friends.

‘Fox & Friends’ Guest: Maybe Whoopi Can Go ‘Interrogate The Terrorists’
Former CIA interrogator and psychologist Dr. James Mitchell returned fire at “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg for suggesting that President Donald Trump ought to face torture, saying, “She needs to be careful.”
Goldberg suggested, during Thursday’s “The View,” that the president only supported Gina Haspel to lead the CIA because he had never experienced torture himself. “I think people who have actually been tortured who are saying that this is not a good thing you should listen to them because you have never been tortured and neither has Dick Cheney.”
Here’s what Mitchell said:
I’m tempted to completely dismiss it, but on second thought, maybe she knows how it’s done. The next time there’s credible intelligence of another catastrophic attack with the potential to kill thousands of people in the United States, maybe she could go to some unsafe place in the world and interrogate the terrorists and I’ll stay back home. I’ll stay safe with my family and I’ll criticize her like she criticized us.

Whoopi has no idea what she’s talking about on this subject. She might want to read up on it before opening her mouth again.
