On Wednesday, three senior U.S. senators sent Michael Lynton, the CEO of Sony Pictures, a letter about “Zero Dark Thirty,” the much-discussed new movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, which described the film as “grossly inaccurate and misleading.”

In the letter, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-California, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Michigan, and Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, expressed their “deep disappointment” in the movie’s depiction of CIA officers torturing prisoners, which “credits these detainees with providing critical lead information” about the courier who led the CIA to bin Laden’s hiding place in northern Pakistan.

    They should also slap Pakistan in the nuts for harbouring BinLaden….like they didn’t know he was living in their country. Durka! Durka!

    Funny considered it’s a .gov sponsored movie. Like “E” says run the country not watch movies. Fix the issues taking money from us while we pay you to watch the movies on .gov time

    I think these senators should worry about doing their job (keeping our U.S. citizens safe)instead of making comments about a movie! It’s a movie, unless it strikes a chord as just maybe it’s close to the truth which our government is not good at revealing (the truth)!!
