Over 6,000 Marines based in Europe and the Middle East are now on “high alert,” a Marine spokesman told Fox News, following the release of a Senate report on CIA interrogation practices

The troops are being put on alert in anticipation of possible backlash to the Senate report, which was released by Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Additionally, they are said to be ready to take “prudent measures” to protect American civilians and diplomats.
