Thousands of Marines are reportedly on heightened alert in advance of the Tuesday release of a report on alleged torture at the hands of CIA agents.
About 2,000 troops based in the Middle East have been warned to be ready to respond to attacks in retaliation for the findings made by the Senate Intelligence Committee, NBC News is reporting.
Amphibious ships manned by the U.S. Navy and Marines have also been deployed around the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden, a body of water between Yemen and Somalia that sits south of the Red Sea.
Several Marines and Ospreys are also in at least one land base in the Mediterranean, according to the report.
The report, in the works for months, is expected to detail various known and possibly unknown torture of terror suspects across CIA outposts referred to as "black sites."
The alleged torture in the years after the 9/11 terror attacks, which including waterboarding, was referred to by the Bush administration as "advanced interrogation techniques."
Current U.S. President Barack Obama infamously said, regarding the tactics: "We may have tortured some folks."
Marines and other U.S. military personnel are permanently stationed throughout Europe and the Middle East and are often used to provide security to U.S. Embassies.
The official who spoke to NBC News declined to provide exact numbers or locations.
