“Zero Dark Thirty”: Dramatized Fiction on CIA “Torture”

How accurate and realistic is the portrayal of CIA interrogation in the film? The movie, after all, opens with a statement saying “based on firsthand accounts of actual events”; then goes on to show the fictionalized brutal abuse and torture of a fictional high value terrorist, including waterboarding.

Panties in a Wad Over “Big Boy Pants”
