    I have seen the report that has been released and I think the Democrats releasing this serves no purpose except to cause Americans abroad and our embassies and the american people to be in more danger than ever before. This type of interrogation is no longer being done so what purpose does releasing it to the public or the world serve? I think we should ask the families of those that died on 911 and those that survived that are medically disabled if this type of interrogation was warranted. Ask the families of the men that have been beheaded if this type of interrogation is and was warranted? The terrorists have only one agenda and that is too kill all americans no matter what. Believe it if they could get their hands on nukes they would shoot straight for America. It was not necessary to release this report. This type of interrogation is no longer used. I think it borders on treason for the Democrats to have released this.

    BTW, This President,his administration, and the democratic congress has done nothing transparent since they have been in office! This President and his administration have made promises and told lies to the american people. Now, suddenly they want transparency. I hope the american people see releasing this report for what it is purely political. I hope to God that more americans aren't killed because The President and Democrats choose politics over american lives. I will hold them entirely responsible for the lives of the americans killed!

    The actions that took place during the interrogations were rough, no doubt, but we now judge those actions from the vantage point of over 10 years of no attacks. The CIA and others were charged with the responsibility of protecting us and preventing more attacks after 3,000 innocent people were murdered. If another attack had occurred, then a furor would have resulted over how they could have let another attack take place. I'm sure they had many sleepless nights worrying about the possibilities of what could take place and how to prevent it. What would any of us have done if we were faced with the responsibility of saving thousands of lives? Would you just keep asking the same questions over and over? Would you try to make friends with them? Do you really think that would work? I think the timing of this release is unfortunate given the fact that ISIS and other groups can use this against us, and besides, less detailed information was released years ago.

    Can I basically say exactly what a relief to get somebody who actually knows what theyre referring to on the net. You surely learn how to bring an issue to light and make it crucial. Far more and much more men and women ought to check out this and see why side inside the story. I cant believe youre less popular because you definitely hold the gift.
