Senators Object To Bin Laden Film

12.20.12 12:59 PM

WASHINGTON,* (UPI) –* Three U.S. senators said they are sending a letter to Sony Pictures to object to the use of fictitious interrogations in the film “Zero Dark Thirty.”

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, along with Sen. John McCain and Sen. Carl Levin, said the film, which depicts the killing of Osama bin Laden, incorrectly links the use of torture with the mission.

The Hill said the letter asks Sony to state that the “role of torture was not based on facts.”

Feinstein, Levin and McCain said the CIA did not use tortuous interrogation techniques during the mission.

Feinstein told The Hill the movie’s connection of waterboarding and the discovery of bin Laden’s compound was “dangerous.”

But The Hill reported that some Republicans, including former Vice President Dick Cheney, argue techniques such as waterboarding and depriving prisoners of sleep were used in gathering information.

The Hill said debate over the film comes after the Senate intelligence committee’s completion of a report on interrogation tactics during the George W. Bush administration.

The senators said the report proves the ineffectiveness of waterboarding and other similar techniques.
