U.S. on alert for Islamist ire to Zero Dark Thirty
Film depicts harsh interrogation methods

Yet fears of a violent backlash against Zero Dark Thirty, which goes into wide release in the U.S. on Jan. 11, are swirling in some corners of Washington and appear to be accentuated by a public perception of a U.S. government consultative role in pre-production research for the film.
Radical corners of the Muslim world have been known to fan the flames around perceived official U.S. involvement with material considered blasphemous, as happened this autumn in Egypt. Protesters infuriated by the Innocence of Muslims stormed the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, then tore down the American flag and briefly replaced it with an Islamic banner.
The demonstrations coincided with the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S., where the Innocence of Muslims was made but practically unnoticed. However, a television network in Egypt prone to hard-line Salafist programming drew attention to the video and drummed up anger by broadcasting portions of it.
Claims that the Obama administration provided the Zero Dark Thirty filmmakers special access to high-level national security officials and shared sensitive information about the bin Laden raid have led to an internal Pentagon investigation of suspected security leaks.

I’m waiting for them to perp walk the director of ZDT.
It's not about approval, or a pat on the back from another mere mortal: it's about getting a pat on the back from their God.(Allah)-Tom
I’m waiting for them to perpwalk the perp in chief and all his little perp friends.
Now maybe I should recalculate the ammount of ammo I might need in the near future...and is THIS why he wants us disarmed so badly? ‘cause the muslims certainly have weapons caches that rival any military installation.
It’ll be fine, the movie is not on YouTube.
Anybody else wonder where we’d be as a country if we behaved along the lines of “We’re proud of who and what we are and screw you if you hate us because of it”?
Do you suppose they’ll jail the director?
You have to wonder how much the producer gave to the DNC?
Well, now we have the reason for the vacation to the Hawaii.
The AG Holder still hasn’t done anything about their training camps here in the US.
