Licence to torture: Will report on interrogation methods put US on defensive? (part 2)

The secret's out. At least, in part. A Senate panel has partially published its report on the CIA's use of torture after the September 11 attacks of 2001. The conclusions are damning, detailing how intelligence services conducted interrogations that were more brutal than stated, and how methods like waterboarding in fact yielded precious little information. Anticipating a hostile reaction, the US has stepped up security at embassies abroad. What will be the fallout from this report?
