In addition, the U.S. embassies in Afghanistan and Thailand are warning of the potential for anti-American protests and violence in the aftermath of the release of the Senate report. The embassies said the release of the report "could prompt anti-U.S. protests and violence against U.S. interests, including private U.S. citizens."

Afghanistan and Thailand were host to two of the secret facilities where prisoners were interrogated with methods the report calls torture.

The notices urged Americans to be alert to their surrounding and take appropriate safety precautions, including avoiding demonstrations or confrontational situations.
