BO is backing the release of this report. Since he came out and stated we tortured some folks. Then other countries Intel services stated this will cause more violence and death to take place. This was all reported back to BO. Yet he and the Democrats are all for it.

    The Republicans are disputing this report and will come out with their own report. Feinstein said she would go ahead with the release. Even after Kerry asked her to hold off with the timing.

    What say ye?
    Shouldn't have started torturing people in the first place. I mean, torture? How`frickin' third-world can you get?

    Wait, what? I think there are some countries around who could show what real torture is all about....not what our PC country's watered down version is.
    Loud music and water discomfort? No wonder other countries laugh at us.

    Would GOP excuse-makers want the report released if parties were reversed?

    The report will show what a liar Dick Cheney was about torture once and for all.
    There's a reason he can't leave this country .

    And you can be sure the GOP would have done this to the DEMs long ago if roles were reversed .

    With all due respect...there is no doubt that both the dems and the repubs have been guilty of torture.
    I would imagine any POW that had been sent to another country for enhanced interrogation had some sincere pain applied.....from either party.
    Not a left or right thing...but just a thing.

    To answer your questions. I don't care who had the majority back then, Who the POTUS was, etc. This type of report will do nothing but bring more resentment towards the US. I believe as many agencies and other govt has said it will only increase the risk for violence. Congress should be able and has enacted changes in the way the CIA and military operates.

    So no, the report should not be made public.

    I think this is by design from our community organizer/POTUS.
    He has been apologetic from day one of his tenure.

    Re: Should the Report on Torture Be Released Publicly?

    Loose lips sink ships. I can't imagine how releasing a report like this would advance the nation.

    I dunno. Transparancy. Damned if you don't. Damned if you do.

    But what purpose, besides political gain, does it serve? At what cost?

    Wanna throw Dick Cheney in jail? He's got one foot in the grave already. Leave him alone. Picking at scabs.
