Releasing torture report

WHY President Obama, did you feel it was necessary to release the torture report at this time. There is NOTHING good that can come out of it. YOU and your fellow DEMOCRATS will be responsible for the HARM that WILL come to our military and other Americans around the world.
It TRULY seems that you care MORE about illegal immigrants and the terrorists in Gitmo than about the average American citizen.
I am a 53 grandma that has never felt it necessary to contact my President, Rep. Or Dem., but I feel deep in my SOUL that you are consistently doing things that are RIPPING this country apart. There is MORE DIVISION between REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS, BLACKS and WHITES, ILLEGALS and AMERICAN CITIZENS. Our country is horribly DIVIDED, and YOU and YOUR actions are the reason why.
The ONLY reason you released this report is to PUNISH President Bush and other GOOD AMERICANS that did whatever they did to KEEP this country SAFE. Mistakes were made. . But we were in unchartered waters. President Bush did what he thought was BEST for our country. WHY don't u try that!?!
