Senator: Tough decision to release report given risk of retaliation

With the release of the CIA torture report, many Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee say that report itself is flawed - that the Democrat's biases make it impossible to produce an objective report.

Senator Marco Rubio, along with others, question the timing, saying the release causes danger to American men and women serving abroad, as well as our alliances. Many critics also say this is just about embarrassing the Bush administration.

Democratic Senator Angus King speaks to Jake Tapper on the release of the report.
