Democracy has been hacked. It has been captured and distorted and no longer operates as it was intended by our founders.
Can we agree that if the Senate, the group that can’t seem to get a single thing accomplished EVER, has a problem with ZERO DARK THIRTY, then it’s probably a movie worth seeing.

Three prominent United States senators on Wednesday joined critics of the film “Zero Dark Thirty” over its depiction of C.I.A. interrogations in the ultimately successful hunt for Osama bin Laden, Scott Shane writes. In a letter to Michael Lynton, chairman and chief executive of Sony Pictures Entertainment, which is releasing the film, the senators called the film “grossly inaccurate and misleading in its suggestion that torture resulted in information that led to the location” of Bin Laden. The three — Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California; Carl Levin, Democrat of Michigan; and John McCain, Republican of Arizona — called on Sony to “consider correcting the impression that the C.I.A.’s use of coercive interrogation techniques led to the operation” against Bin Laden, but they do not explain exactly how that could be done.
