Why is the White House trying to squash Dianne Feinstein’s CIA report?

Not that I particularly object to the Democrats holding off on publishing what was essentially a political hack job against the last President, but

Secretary of State John Kerry personally phoned Dianne Feinstein, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Friday morning to ask her to delay the imminent release of her committee’s report on CIA torture and rendition during the George W. Bush administration, according to administration and Congressional officials.

Kerry was not going rogue — his call came after an interagency process that decided the release of the report early next week, asFeinstein had been planning,  could complicate relationships with foreign countries at a sensitive time and posed an unacceptable risk to U.S. personnel and facilities abroad.  Kerry told Feinstein he still supports releasing the report, just not right now.

…if this report doesn’t get issued now, when did Secretary Kerry expect it to be released?  I mean, Sen Feinstein is not going to be Intelligence Chair for very much longer.  I mean, like, she won’t be, a month from now. And since the administration is now saying what the GOP was saying all along…  weird, this is.

PS: Oh, yes, the usual suspects are throwing a tantrum on the subject.  They always do that, though.  You learn to tune it out.
