    Really? Nobody at the CIA was even interviewed for the report.

    Ah, the left. Politics above all.


    Left?

    How is a JOINT report of Democrats AND Republicans, who are right leftist?

    That is so much vacuous bull**** and spin the reason the inept dolts in the Republican party cannot get the best of the worst president in modern history.

    Abuse and torture is neither left nor right, it's simply barbarian

    The report, from the Senate intelligence committee, claimed the interrogation techniques used were "brutal and far worse" than the CIA represented to lawmakers. Further, the report claimed the tactics were not effective and the spy agency gave "inaccurate" information about it to Congress and the White House. The report called CIA management of the program "deeply flawed" -- though agency officials have staunchly defended the program and credited it with helping track down Usama bin Laden and other terror leaders.
    Yeah, go ahead ignore all that. But realize you have been at war for nearly 15 years and the situation is worse than when you decided to "kill them if they run". 15 years and a few hundred thousand American lives lost with no end to the body bags anytime in my lifetime and likely yours and your kids and it's spreading and becoming more grotesque.

    And how many Mahar Arars have there been? An innocent man systematically sodomized and tortured on a daily basis by America's "friends" in Syria after having been "renditioned" by the CIA. They had the wrong man.

    But, it's OK, he isn't American, merely passing through JFK airport, and he was wasn't tortured by Americans, technically, so the CIA skates. But how many others never get rescued by the Canadian government? How many others have been scooped from their lives and beaten and raped for years for having a name Americans can't understand....and who become martyrs for the cause? How many like them formed ISIS?

    It's OK though, just dismiss any and all criticism as "left".

    People will die because of this.

    Good God, why do Democrats hate this country, the military, and the CIA so much?

    Like I said, let the excuses begin, but the claims are known. What we have is the results. Bottom line, no results to show.

    Greetings, ocean515.

    If the ICC is interested in investigating anything, I'd suggest they begin with Boku Haram and ISIS - or maybe burning people to death that have been locked in their homes, or beheading those they don't like isn't considered a crime? I'll let our legal system handle our problems. We don't need ICC or the UN to define what we do - 3,000 people died on 9-11 right here in our country, and if it takes brutal interrogation to get to the bottom of it, so be it! Let the Dems explain to their families why it's wrong! Sheesh!

    Whine about left and right all you want, the point is still the point.
    The CIA seems to have deceived the administration on a number of points and to have knowingly broken the law in a number of cases.
    I will reserve my opinion till I have sighted the report.

    False. What was released today was the declassified Democratic Majority Executive summary of the 6000 page report, an entirely partisan digest of the full report.

    The minority summary of the 6000 page report has not been released.
