WATCH Fox Host Lose It Over Senate Torture Report: ‘We Are Awesome!’

After the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on the torture techniques used by the CIA, the hosts of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” lashed out at Senate Democrats’ for publicizing CIA interrogation methods.

Co-host Andrea Tantaros accused Democrats of resurfacing torture techniques that the CIA has already stopped using for political reasons.

“The Bush administration did what the American public wanted, and that was do whatever it takes to keep us safe. These terror tactics have been stopped because as a country we decided we are better than this,” she said. “It’s not about democracy now. No, no. It’s about politics.”

Tantaros then exploded and asserted several times that the U.S. is simply “awesome.”

“The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome,” she said. “We’ve closed the book on it, and we’ve stopped doing it. And the reason they want to have this discussion is not to show how awesome we are. This administration wants to have this discussion to show us how we’re not awesome.”

“They apologized for this country, they don’t like this country, they want us to look bad. And all this does is have our enemies laughing at us, that we are having this debate again,” Tantaros continued.

She later added that the Obama administration believes “naively that if we can just shame ourself and convince the world how horrible we are, and put us on a moral equivalency with all these other countries then maybe they will stop beheading Americans and putting our heads on sticks.”

“They’re fools,” she said.

Tantaros’ remarks begin at 3:01. Watch the video via Raw Story:
