Ken Roth, the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch, has proven himself to be rather sloppy with the facts when it comes to Israel. And as a recent tweet of his shows, he is rather sloppy when it comes to other facts as well.

Roth tweeted this about 4 hours ago as of the time of this post.

Of all the people Trump could have picked as deputy CIA director, he chose woman who ran CIA black site for torture. https://t.co/anzgWNFWrW pic.twitter.com/94LTmUpIcI

The article Roth links to in his tweet reports that the woman is unnamed “because she was a covert agent at the time.”

Which begs the question: How can Roth have a photo of her?

Simple answer: it is not a photo of her at all. It’s a photo of BBC journalist and newsreader Emily Maitlis, who was quite mortified by Roth’s tweet

The twitter exchange is rather comical

Being a Prog means never having to say, "I was wrong."
