    But I respect his craft, his understanding of filmmaking, and in this blogpost, his logic.

    Whatever my personal opinion of his tactics in the public arena might be,  his progressive bona fides are above reproach.

    He has made a compelling rational argument. I have not seen ZDT. I don't believe in criticizing nor glorifying a film I have not myself seen. It seems time for me to go see it.

    Thanks for this diary. The more informed opinions that we hear about this important movie, the better.

      Stewart has apparently changed his stance on opposition to torture then it is likely that many normal people will as well?  If I were the commander of West Point I would be tempted to resign especially since the director will probably not be willing to come to West Point (like Kiefer Sutherland did) to lecture the cadets about how torture is ineffective and evil.

        hand opinion.  I saw the Stewart interview, and think Sullivan's crazy to think that.

        "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.
