    You are right.
    Sadly, he may even be one of the characters depicted in the movie: Slate.com speculates that he is the basis for the character played by Stephen Dillane, which if so is really a shame since Dillane can't seem to help but endow each character he plays with an aura of intelligence and sensitivity.

    Thank you for suggesting that people demand that the Senate reject Brennan's confirmation. There are many worthy organizations which have long been protesting torture and those responsible for it, and one such is the women's peace group CODEPINK, which has an online petition against Brennan's selection that will go to the Senate Intelligence Committee. You can sign it here:

      and the link to the Code Pink petition.

      Very true that many worthy organizations have been fighting torture for a long time. I am hopeful, if we all work together, we can get stopping torture as the law, policy and practice of the United States, and pushing to ensure that those responsible at the highest levels for the torture inflicted by the US since 9/11 back on the American agenda. I will, among other things, be going to DC soon for the fourth time to lobby.

                            Thanks for your hard work,
                          Standing for justice and accountability,
                                      For Dan,
                                      Heather

      Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is inflicting it on whom.
