As Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I understand you didn't gather information from any CIA sources. Rather, when the CIA refused to cooperate (gee, wonder why), you simply "cherry-picked" the information that supported your position: Torture is bad. Well, there's a revelation. As if anyone is thrilled with the concept.
"Releasing this report is important step to restoring our values and showing the world that we are a just society" you said. Yes, I remember now that the entire world was dismayed over our brutish behavior. I'm sure everyone feels vindicated now.
The New York Times indicates at 81, this is your "signal moment." Prior to its release, John Kerry had requested that you delay issuing your findings (I use that term loosely) to mitigate the possibility of retaliatory measures against our military personnel abroad. In your self-righteous arrogance, you declined. Well, of course. We are talking about your "signal moment."
Are you considering going after the drone program next? I mean, those things are lethal.
No doubt our enemies will get a good laugh out of what Americans consider "torture," because they do things like, you know, cut off limbs and behead people.
