Day Pitney Author(s) Steven A. Cash

Steven Cash authored an op-ed, “Gina Haspel Should be Confirmed,” for The Hill. The opinion article supports Haspel as the next Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and refutes certain concerns that have been raised surrounding her nomination. Cash, a former CIA Operations Officer, now Counsel in Day Pitney’s Washington, D.C. and New York offices, writes, “Intelligence agencies such as the CIA are a necessary yet dangerous tool for our democracy. These agencies should be led by career intelligence professionals who will follow the direction and guidance of our democratically elected leaders and not substitute their views and preferred policies. They can persuade, argue, complain and even resign in protest. But they cannot serve as our conscience. Ms. Haspel should be confirmed.”
