Senators write Sony, criticize 'Zero Dark Thirty'
By DONNA CASSATA , Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Three senators have written to the head of Sony Pictures Entertainment criticizing the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" as "grossly inaccurate and misleading" in its suggestion that torture produced the tip that led to Osama bin Laden.

Bing: 'Zero Dark Thirty' Oscar buzz

The three members of the Senate Intelligence committee -- Dianne Feinstein, Carl Levin and John McCain -- told the president and CEO of Sony, Michael Lynton, that he has an obligation to say that torture in the hunt for bin Laden was fiction and not based on fact.

The lawmakers said the CIA detainee who provided significant information about bin Laden did so before any harsh interrogation.

The three described themselves as fans of Sony movies. But they warned that Americans will see the film and believe the events are factual.

Amendment VIII

Torture is illegal under the constitution.

John Mccain was chicken-winged/tortured while a POW during Vietnam.

That's where they pull your elbows behind your back and place a log through your elbows and tie the log to your arms, securing the log and you elbows behind your back. The prisoner is then HOISTED OFF THE GROUND BY HIS ELBOWS WHICH DESTROYS THE SHOULDERS AND THE POW'S BODY WEIGHT BEGANS TO SQUEEZE THE LUNGS. LEFT IN THAT POSITION, THE POW WOULD ASPHYXIATE.

Sen Mccain survived but is left with a lifetime disability stemming from that torture. Sen McCain CANNOT lift his arms above his shoulders. due to the torture method destroying his shoulder sockets.

Sen McCain and Congressman Ron Paul are about the only 2 Republicans that understand just how wrong torture is and HOW WRONG AMERICA WAS/IS to torture POW's.

The rest of the ENTIRE RETHUG party could have learned alot from McCain and Ron Paul, but they refuse to listen.

American torture IS AMERICAN FASCISM, pure and simple.

Those who committed torture, committed warcrimes.

and it's absolutely UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Amendment VIII
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
