    McCain is a war hero who just can't stomach his own GOP at times and it boils over.
    He is well beyond the time when he should have retired.
    Do you have any idea how many GOP Senators are just as old as McCain or older?
    Yet they are the consummate party of term limits .

    The massive Wiki you pointed to indicates that the majority of the people were released. That is exactly what I would expect. What did you expect?
    Don't you think things got really screwed up when the left decided these detainees at Gitmo that should have been dealt with by a military tribunal were then being tried in our court system as if they actually had the same rights as citizens to prove their innocence? You see after all this time there really shouldn't be any detainees left at Gitmo. They should have already faced a military tribunal and either released or be counted as dead. Now the Obama way is not capture them but hit them with drones and kill off a lot of innocent lives and our on the ground informants who are desperately needed in gathering intelligence in the process. WTH?

    And former allies will read it. Feinstein did enormous damage to the US. She needs to be held to account.

    Our enemies will read it and use it to recruit.

    The treasonous, but not yet charged Feinstein, release a report that likely identified the countries who helped us. They will not help us again. She identified the interrogation techniques. Future high value targets can be expected to be trained on how to resist. So she made gathering information much harder. She threw patriots who are not bedwetters under the bus undermining innovation and resourcefulness for at least two generations.

    The doddering old fool McCain, who is himself not a traitor, embraced the treasonous but not yet charged Feinstein and all but gave her sloppy kisses.

    Tell that to the U.S. and Cuban governments.

    From what I've seen, the CIA is disputing not the report itself but whether it was acceptable for the Senate to publicize the Torture report. Not once has CIA officials dispute any of the claims made in the report.



    And?
    You won't mind if I don't believe you will you? I could not read a 6,000 page report in two days and I am pretty fast.

    Yes, whatever is in the report the treason is in releasing it. She intentionally damaged the United States and the Central Intelligence Agency. The damage is enormous and long lasting. She must be held accountable.

    Feinstein did the GOP a favor releasing the report.
    As Committee chair, McCain would have also released the report, dividing the GOP.
    Now GOPs can play their usual Patriot card

    I do not trust government. If a politician tells me something or if a bureaucrat tells me something I would not believe it for a moment.

    But I do believe a process whose intent is to determine who is dangerous to us and who is not will work reasonably well given that it is our interest to make that determination. If it were not so we would have tens of thousands of prisoners and not just a few. Most were caught, documented, evaluated and released.

    Absolutely. Then, they claim that the reason they released it is so the nation can admit their wrongs, and take accountability for what they've done. If you ask me, the nation's not who should be admitting their wrongs. It's the CIA. Ironically enough, they're still minimizing what has happened.

    In this case it is. You are clearly siding with the traitorous, but not yet charge Feinstein, who as an enemy of the American people, released a report that will damage relations with our allies, will embolden our enemies, provide recruiting materials to our enemies and will delight anti-American liberals from sea to shining sea. That is supporting our enemy, Dianne Feinstein.
