Oscar-Nominated ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Picketed By People Who Say Movie Advocates Torture: What do you do when you can’t protest wars, civil liberties abuses, the possibility of indefinite detentions for American citizens (under the NDAA), kill lists and killer drones because Barack Obama is the President? You protest a movie instead.

Yeah they dont want to have a terrorist harmed to save our families but will allow a born baby to be left for dead. How do they get it both ways?

I saw the movie earlier tonight. It does not advocate torture but it does show how enhanced interrogations worked. Were the detainees made to suffer in the film? One was. Was it historically accurate? Not according to Jose Rodriguez who ran the interrogations for the CIA. Still a good movie. Thank goodness it isn’t on YouTube or it might spark violence in Benghazi.

Next week the torture protestors will be marching in celebration of the 40th anniversary of legal abortion throughout the United States.

I always wondered what became of the Occupy Movement and Cindy Sheehan.
