Mohammed, according to The New York Times, asked a military judge at Guantanamo Bay, where he has been held since 2006, for permission to share six paragraphs of information on Haspel with the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee.

Prior to being sent to Gitmo, Mohammed was housed as a series of CIA black sites since his capture in 2003.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said via Twitter on Tuesday he has no interest in hearing what Mohammed has to say unless and until “every 9/11 widow, widower, [and] child testifies about what they think of him”:

On Wednesday, Haspel faced a lot of questions about her past enforcement of “enhanced interrogation techniques,” like waterboarding. Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) asked the nominee if she thinks it’s “immoral” for the U.S. to waterboard terrorists.

Haspel, in response, noted the fact that terrorists often hold to no moral compass.
