No chance this film gets an Oscar. Not that I care what Hollywood thinks about anything.
They’re just upset because it doesn’t portray Obama going to Afghanistan and killing Obama himself.
But, that “torture” allowed us to gain the intelligence necessary so Obama could get all tacticaled-up and fly to Poky-ston to personally kill Osama Bin Laden! Or at least that’s the fantasy that the left masturbates to every night.
After what they’ve done to America in the last five years, how can they claim to be opposed to torture?
The libtards are just upset that this movie doesn’t portray Obama to be the one that killed Bin Laden with his little hands..libs hate torture, trust me, seeing these liberal loons patting each other on the back is TRUE torture
I wonder what they think Django advocates.
This should help ticket sales.
...and for being pretty darn hot...
I would be gald to see the ending brought to life when he is given a 21 gun salute, (firing squad) for all the military deaths that could be attached to this blabber mouth's disclosure!

If somebody is against torture because of moral principles, shouldn’t they still be against it even if the torture works?
I’m against extreme torture (such as body mutilation) even if it does work. I suspect most freepers have a line somewhere that they draw using moral principles.
I would only be okay with something that causes extreme pain (such as shocks) in the most dire of circumstances, such as someone knew the location of a nuclear bomb that’s about to explode. Other than that, that’s out too.
Waterboarding was used three times by the Bush administration on the worst of the worst. I can live with that. I wouldn’t want to use it often, however.
Anything that’s no worse than what recruits face in boot camp (sleep deprivation, getting yelled at in the face, etc.) is just fine by me for nonuniformed enemy combatants.
I draw these lines based primarily on morality, not effectiveness. Some people want the universe to line up perfectly so that anything they find morally unacceptable is therefore also ineffective. It’s an absurd childlike way of thinking.
Now I definitely will see it.
See the movie and watch it closely. I don’t want to give anything away, so I won’t spell it out, but this is not a baby movie that coddles you along—you have to pay attention.
They use the correct military language when appropriate too. No Hollywood translation. That is why a lot of people miss a lot.
Little people desperately seeking relevence....
and surely there was no politics among the other voting movie directors that the director of Zero Dark was NOT nominated for best director, while the movie itself was nominated for best picture (ha ha) - a difference that is rare even in uber political Hollyweird
I saw the movie, and it didn’t seem like “torture” to me.
