    No conservative in his right mind would believe this.

    Much of that report is liberally biased. Enough so that apparently no one was even willing to put their name(s) on it. And no evidence whatsoever was apparently offered for the report's allegations. At least none was mentioned in the article. And without evidence, it's little more than political rhetoric and leaves no reason to put much credence to it.

    The practices of the CIA back then were mild compared to what many other intelligence agencies around the world practice during times of war. And from reports I read at the time (over a decade ago), there actually was significant life-saving information extracted using those interrogation techniques.

    Since none of those techniques are used today and all the allegations are from over a decade ago, Hillary's famous phrase becomes appropriate... What difference does it now make?

    This report appears to be little more than an attempt at diverting attention from current ongoing political issues that are proving to be embarrassing to the White House. The administration has been establishing a pattern of attempting to divert media attention whenever too many other reports are not going their way. Must be an election year.

    "No American is proud of CIA tactics". Listen, if they saved lives, both civilian and military, and stopped future attacks, then I'm proud of the CIA. These terrorists are as ruthless and cruel and uncaring about human beings as a hungry great white shark. They probably laugh at what the civilized world calls torture. If you read about the stuff they do, you'd be greatful if all you had to endure was some water, cold, and loss of sleep.
