  •  What a bunch of baloney (7+ / 0-)

    I saw the movie last night and makes no link between torture and getting bin Laden. The big break came from a little person who found something in a five year old file and an obsessive agent who did the years of grunt work to nail down bin Laden's location.

    I began watching this movie with huge reservations and in fact was furious when I saw the first couple of torture scenes. But then I watched the movie and saw I was wrong.

    It's a very good movie.

      Even when he seems to be right, I hold my fire.

        and to like the movie. A lot. Reading about the real woman they based the lead part on is also interesting. She and some others were about to get awards and promotions, but she complained that the others not only didn't do anything but in fact stood in her way and only she deserved the recognition and reward. Much to the surprise of those who worked with her, she got nothing.

          but then send out an email telling them that only she deserved it.  She was passed over for promotion, though.
