    I agree with everything you said here.

    I think Obama will ignore it to the best of his ability. He didn't want it released (neither did Kerry, nor Brennan, and so on). If something bad comes out of it, he wants no part of it. There have been no attacks on this country since 2001. Obama isn't stupid. He doesn't want that to change while he's in the WH. He'll let Feinstein and company take ownership of this.

    .....about torture.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Bush euphemisms and propaganda may satisfy your mind and intellect, but not mine. Torture is torture, no matter what political euphemisms are used.

    Are you suggesting that rape is OK as long as it is not done as punishment?

    OMG, such simple minds....

    Gee, I wonder what the UN is going to do about member nations that put people of minority faith/sexuality to death, treat some as second class citizens and have prison situations that are straight up abusive...

    The UN is nothing more than a hypocritical international club.

    So you cannot discuss these UN officials then? Fair enough.

    We know the answer to that. They will continue their anti American, anti Democracy propaganda and those on the left, the Gruberites, will easily buy into it.

    The Road To Serfdom demonstrated how easily this sort of propaganda works.
