  •  Having not seen the movie... (0+ / 0-)

    since it hasn't been released to a full audience yet, I will just say that movies about historical events are always inaccurate.

    I expect this trend to continue.

    •  From what I have read this is a 180 inaccurate. (0+ / 0-)

      Torture is good intelligence.

        Is this not fact?

        Should the movie remove uncomfortable facts?

        Should I now reach 2 conclusions based on someone else's version of seeing or not seeing the movie?

        1. The movie depicts torture that wasn't used.

        2. That the movie suggests or otherwise intones that the torture lead to usable intelligence.

        The One review I read said that the movie depicts things differently. That the intelligence was received through non- torture interrogation.

        I will see the movie and make up my own mind.

        •  That's what I've been thinking. (4+ / 0-)

          Torture was used, and just because the movie depicts it does not mean Bigelow et al. are saying it was key (or even instrumental) to finding OBL.
