[Zero Dark Thirty] creates the strong impression that the enhanced interrogation techniques that were part of our former detention and interrogation program were the key to finding bin Laden. That impression is false.
CIA chief Michael Morell • From a statement released today, regarding Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s controversial new film, Zero Dark Thirty, about the lead-up to the raid that ultimately killed Osama bin Laden.The film contains depictions of torture being used in service of the bin Laden manhunt, and suggests those methods were effective — Senators John McCain, Dianne Feinstein and Carl Levin also sent a letter to the head of Sony Pictures, condemning that notion. We admit to not having seen the film yet, so any editorializing on our part would be critically ill-informed, but some who have seen it had incredibly strong reactions — this morning, MSNBC host Chris Hayes lambasted it as “objectively pro-torture,” and further suggested it “colludes with evil.” source

The new movie directed by Kathryn Bigelow, Academy Award-winning director of “The Hurt Locker”, portrays one version of the events that ultimately led to the death of Osama Bin Laden in his Abbottabad compound last year. While many eagerly await the film’s release, some have called it a propaganda film to boost President Obama’s image ahead of the election. To fight that notion, Sony has delayed the movie’s release from October to December, and a depiction of President Obama reportedly does not appear in the film. But, do you still think it was wrong for the White House to work with Bigelow and her team on production of the movie? source

If this facility is so secret that the name cannot even be seen by the public, then why in the world would the Obama administration allow filmmakers to tour it?
Representative Peter King • Expressing his dismay over news that director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal were given access to Seal Team Six and information about the death of Osama bin Laden for their upcoming movie Zero Dark Thirty. Information which the Obama Administration has steadfastly defended from Freedom of Information Act inquiries, Congressional committees, and anyone else not involved in making movies about war-zones. Oh, and they received a tour of the complex that Seal Team Six used to prepare for the operation. You know, nothing special. source (viafollow)
