    You don't see why it should be pointed out, that there will be two separate reports?

    What about not one Demo talking to anyone in the program? Do you think that is irrelevant to?

    I never said that. They seem to come forth out of nothingness.

    Do you think American kidnappings will go up?

    House Intelligence chief: Report will spur attacks.....

    Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican, is regularly briefed on intelligence assessments. He told CNN's "State of the Union" that U.S. intelligence agencies and foreign governments have said privately that the release of the report on CIA interrogations a decade ago will be used by extremists to incite violence that is likely to cost lives. The 480-page report, a summary of a still-classified 6,000 page study, is expected to be made public next week.

    A U.S. intelligence official, who was not authorized to be quoted discussing classified intelligence assessments, said Congress had been warned "of the heightened potential that the release could stimulate a violent response."

    On Friday, Secretary of State John Kerry urged the senator in charge of the report to consider the timing of the release, though Obama administration officials say they still support making it public. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat and chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has not responded to reports of the Kerry call, though she told the Los Angeles Times in a story published Sunday that "We have to get this report out.".....snip~

    Well, what I'm wondering is, why they call it "the torture report" in the open press. Seems an intent to inflame it.

    I think the full torture report should be published.

    I've been waterboarded and a few other interrogation techniques, as were all guys that would be potentially put in that position to understand what it felt like and how to not let it break you. Now... it was not fun, but it was not torcher either.

    This is nothing but a political attack on the GOP and BW Bush. Nothing more than that.

    And by doing so, the Democrats in the Senate are putting our military, our civilians overseas, and even civilians here at home in grave danger.

    This is as close to treason as I have seen in my lifetime done by any politician in any political party. If they think this will garner them power or prestige, they are mistaken. If they think this will garner support from the military, they are grossly mistaken. If they think that this will help them politically at home, they are mentally unbalanced. And, if they think this will help us overseas in our war against terrorism and provide protection from further attacks... well...

    IF this report is released, charges should be brought against those that do. Just like they are wanting to do to Edward Snowden. Because this is worse. These Senators took an oath to protect and defend, not attack and endanger.

    I'm sick and tired of this "torture" talk. The information has been out there for years and the scope of what was done was piddling. This report is nothing more than the act of a desperate woman to create some kind of relevance for her party that just got thrashed in the elections.
    That's pretty much it.

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?
    I smell Obama's direct involvement in this, and if so. it is just about the only "achievement" that he can be proud of that he set out to do when he was elected. This is one of his key issues that I have always mentioned. He has been ralling against the CIA ever since he was a senator.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Waterboarding and sleep deprivation is not torcher. I have endured it - it is not torcher. There are no long lasting effects, just short term discomfort to break down resistance to questioning.

    Maybe you will change your mind when an attack happens that effects your own family and friends. I would hope you would.

    The announcement to release the report has nothing to do with the mid-terms, and everything to do with 2016 and attacking the GOP. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Republicans and American security personnel have been tarred by Democrats for years as it relates to "torture" - it is condemnation by insinuation. Let the Democrats release their report, provided no individual, either American or friendly international is specifically named, and let the Republicans also release their report and their problems with the Democrat's findings. Nothing in such reports will be overly surprising and all the hand wringing about potential for harm is just ass covering defense of those who love to live in the dark.

    America's enemies will be little affected and America's friends even less so. There might be some political posturing, but what's new about that? Get it out, get it discussed, and then get back to the important issues of the day.
    Also.... this.
