      I get quite enough pro-torture propaganda from "free" sources to have to pay for it !

        I had heard all the left complaining about it, and I didn't know that I wanted to give money to it.

        But I saw it.  I think much of the left is wrong about it.  JMHO.

        I'd recommend you see it, too. Sorry you don't want to.

          comment about this being a 9.11 porn movie - what I was getting at was how it is a piece in the larger mosaic that builds up the narrative the OBL had any substantial to do with 9.11 in the first place, thus necessitating the whole decade (plus) long (heroic, ha ha) manhunt for him.

          The best account I've seen of how OBL * was * involved in 9.11 is given in this New Yorker article and the answer is not really any more than Jesus Christ was involved in George W Bush's Iraq war.  That is to say, they were both (i.e. OBL and JC) mythical figures that inspired the major actors involved but did little beyond that - for sure, they had no operational role.

          Nevertheless, I think I WOULD go see a movie where the CIA engages in a decade (2 millenia?) long manhunt to track down Jesus Christ torturing all the usual suspects (the pope, Rick Warren etc) along the way.  I think I'd enjoy that.  9.11 porn OTOH, not so much.   Maybe it's still just too soon.
