“The Joint Staff has warned all combatant commands to be on alert for possible violence following the upcoming release of a Senate intelligence committee report on CIA interrogation methods during President George W. Bush’s administration, according to Stars & Stripes .  

“The report is an unclassified summary of a longer 6,200 page classified document. Democrats on the committee and their staffs spent six years reviewing CIA documents about the agency’s interrogation programs, which included controversial tactics like waterboarding. Those practices were prohibited after President Barack Obama came into office.”  

“U.S. officials have expressed concern that the revelations could provoke attacks against Americans and U.S. facilities overseas.”
