President Trump appointed the first woman as CIA director Tuesday following another shakeup in his Cabinet.

Gina Haspel, 61, will take the helm at the agency, replacing Mike Pompeo, who was named the new secretary of state after Rex Tillerson was ousted.

Haspel is a seasoned spymaster who ran a CIA prison in Thailand where terror suspects were subjected to harsh interrogation techniques that Trump has supported. She helped carry out an order to destroy waterboarding videos – which prompted a Department of Justice probe that ended without charges.

The prison housed accused terrorists Abu Zubayadah and Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri, who were waterboarded in 2002, sources told the Associated Press.

Haspel has also served as chief of station at agency outposts abroad.
