In a tweet from Randy Kennedy, then shared on Facebook by Girl du Jour (and then others) it is claimed that President Trump's pick to head the CIA - Gina Haspel - is wanted in Europe for "war crimes". The posts don't specifically say, but presumably these war crimes are water boarding and other "enhanced interrogation techniques" used in the CIA prison she once headed.

Searching the web, I've found nothing to back this claim up. Is it true there is/are a warrant(s) for the arrest of Ms. Haspel on charges of war crimes?

    You're going to need a notable source in order for this to stay. Just saying "recent postings on social media" is not enough for us to talk about this claim. – DenisS Mar 19 '18 at 20:13
  • I'm not proposing to close this question yet, as there may be a notable source, but you're going to need to find one. – DenisS Mar 19 '18 at 20:37
  • These two (1) sources (2) provided on her Wikipedia page will be helpful for anyone who cares to edit or answer the question. – Dispenser Mar 19 '18 at 21:26

    Neither of the sources @Dispenser cites, nor any I could find with a quick search claimed that she is wanted for war crimes. There is plenty of claims that she committed war crimes and opinions that she should be arrested, but I can't find anyone actually saying she IS wanted. Please edit in a link and quote of someone making the claim. – Oddthinking Mar 20 '18 at 3:17
