Because that’s the only thing going in the world today, John McCain and some other Senators wrote a letter to the producer of “Oh Dark Thirty” in regards to their portrayal of the torturing of al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Apparently, they think the poplar opinion that bin Laden’s location was tortured out of KSM, or at least, a way to locate him. But McCain, because there’s nothing else to do in Washington today wrote to Sony;
In their letter to Sony, the lawmakers said the “use of torture in the fight against terrorism did severe damage to America’s values and standing that cannot be justified or expunged. It remains a stain on our national conscience. We cannot afford to go back to these dark times, and with the release of `Zero Dark Thirty,’ the filmmakers and your production studio are perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. You have a social and moral obligation to get the facts right.”
Ho-hum. Waterboarding is not torture, I don’t care how you look at it. So get over it, Johnny. My conscience isn’t stained. The issue I might have with the film is that if they show the killing of bin Laden like they did in that POS National Geographic thing, the inaccuracy is glaring. In that movie, the SEAL was shown deliberately double-tapping bin Laden, but according to the eye witness account of Matt Bissonnette in his book, “No Easy Day“, bin Laden peeked around the corner of the door to his room and got drilled without anyone even knowing it was him and it took several minutes for them to report that bin Laden was dead because they couldn’t ID the body because his face was disfigured.
I mean if McCain has nothing else to do in Washington, what with the impending Obama Tax Hikes and gun control legislation being jammed through to Congress, then he should at least complain about something important in the movies. Didn’t McCain once say that Washington is Hollywood for ugly people – he doesn’t have to live up that.
