    To me, this is more like trying to justify compassion to the torturer, and 'understanding' why they 'had to torture' for the sake of the greater good.

    I am sure those torturers of the Inquisitions, or those in the death camps of nazi Germany, or those of Saharto, or Mao Zetung...and on and on, sat at the dinner table in thier various homes and places, and told thier wives and children what they had to do for the greater good to 'those people'.

    This is what the movie is like to me.  I saw the movie, and in the audience I was with, it didnt go as well as to deserve recognition as a good film.  Something like giving a medal to the people who drove the plane over Hiroshima to drop the atomic device.

    Of course...they had to do it.
