ISIS and Syrians unsurprised by ‘light torture’ described in CIA report – but will use it as propaganda

ISIS prefers ‘tougher’ methods, like crucifixion and threats to carry it out.

In the sinister propaganda videos produced by the jihadis of Islamic State, their western captives have regularly been dressed in the orange jumpsuits familiar from scenes of the US detention camp at Guantánamo Bay – before being beheaded.

The point is an obvious one: what Americans inflicted on Muslim fighters will be inflicted on Americans and Britons who fall into their hands.

The latest revelations of torture and abuse by the CIA in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks are not news to Isis, al-Qaida or other extremist Islamist groups. But they have been instantly incorporated into the narrative of “Crusader” cruelty – and may be used to justify similar methods as well as to promote recruitment.

“Read [the Senate report] my brother and stick your shoe in the mouth of those who say that the Islamic State distorts Islam,” one Isis supporter tweeted. Another, a Syrian, wrote: “Getting beheaded is 100 times more humane, more dignified than what these filthy scumbags do to Muslims”…

Releasing that report now was insane.

    This report just gives the terrorist groups more ammunition and they must be laughing at “stupid Americans”.

    Twitter user Rami AlLolah posted a picture of a smiling Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, with the caption: “Assad after reading the #CIATorture report: You guys know shit about torture!”

    Dianne Feinstein is some kind of evil all on her own. Thank you CA for your endless supply of Democorrupts.

      Feinstein is not a Jew, she’s a leftist sow who hates the God of Israel and would cheerfully see the Jews in Poland. Nobody who took her Jewish faith seriously would ever have been elected mayor of San Francisco.

      If she still pretends to be Jewish it’s because she still thinks she and her bank husband can flee to Israel by private jet and beg asylum when Americans have finally had enough of traitors and arselifters.

      By then you can be sure the Israelis won’t be interested in giving shelter to traitors to the Jewish people.

        The funny thing is that at one time back in the 70s, she used to have a concealed carry license but more recently was really pushing for more gun control with Obama after the Sandy Hook school shooting a couple of years ago.
