Kudos to Senator Dianne Feinstein, chairperson of the U.S. Senate Select Committee of Intelligence, which has released 525 heavily redacted pages [pdf] of the original CIA torture report. I suppose that Feinstein has not read all 6200 pages. I have instantly stopped browsing through the document, in disgust, when I got the impression that executives in the Bush administration, including defiant Bush Jr. himself, need to be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague (of which the United States is at least a signatory).
There have been warnings that the release of the report may indeed increase the risk for terrorist attacks and thousands of marines are put on high alert around the world. After latent racism in a paranoid society had recently been brutally exposed once more. After NSA’s and Obama’s serious attempts to establish the ultimate surveillance state and his relentless war against whistle-blowers. After declaration of endless war (against terrorism) and a new cold war (against Russia), the risk for losing any faith in self-regulating factors of the single superpower is disproportionately greater. Despite releasing the CIA torture report.
