Following the release of the CIA torture report, several militant-affiliated social media accounts have been trying to shift attention towards Islamic State (Isis) news.

While US embassies and military staff were cautioned against aggressive retaliation that was expected to follow after the release of the torture report, reactions so far appear to be otherwise.

Islam is feared. It's why the kuffar are harsh towards Islam/Muslims #TortureReport

They don't know they're gonna have to answer to Allah

Since the release of the report, several social media users have been posting videos and photos to depict the progress of the IS militants' war against the West.

They #YPG never thought of leaving the #Kobane & resisted on their own soil to death, still fighting invaders #ISIS

Some users, however, condemned both the US and the countries supporting the US-led coalition against IS.

It would be wrong to assume that IS militants have forgotten the Guantanamo Bay abuse despite their attempts to play down the release of the torture report. The militant group's practice of dressing its Western hostages in orange jumpsuits similar to the ones worn at the Guantanamo Bay prison highlights the damage done by the brutal interrogation techniques used by the CIA.

ISIS doesn't recruit by citing passages from the Koran. They recruit by showing videos of U.S. military atrocities. #TortureReport

Meanwhile, Muslim scholars and critics criticised the US as hypocritical following the release of the report.

There will be people who say the CIA aren't representative of America but still claim that ISIS are representative of Islam #TortureReport

A nation that doesn't live by it's own set of purported values has no right to police the world. #TortureReport...
