On Tuesday morning, the Senate intelligence committee released the 525-page executive summary of its 6,700-page report on CIA torture. The report laid bare the torture CIA interrogators used in (often futile) attempts to elicit information from detainees. Although tactics that included “rectal rehydration” and sensory deprivation offended some people, others chose to celebrate the CIA today:
Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh:

Conservative blogger RB Pundit:
It was about getting info out of sub-human filth. RT @GableSteven @RBPundit @AdamBaldwin so… this was about revenge?

Liz Cheney and her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), a potential candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016:
Those who served us in aftermath of 9/11 deserve our thanks not one sided partisan Senate report that now places American lives in danger.
