Dianne Feinstein wants to get to the bottom of torture depictions in “Zero Dark Thirty”
SF Examiner ^ | 1/03/13 | Katy St. Clair

**SNIP**

“Investigators will examine whether the spy agency gave the filmmakers ‘inappropriate’ access to secret material,” a person “familiar with the matter” told Huffpo.

Senate Dems say that the use of torture in this case is factually incorrect.

Juan McCain made similar claims.

I wonder how much Boffo this film will get overseas.

When she was a San Fran City Supervisor she openly courted the Reverand Jim Jones who did THIS in Guyana:

No one ever called her on it. They killed 383 with cyanide.

Dianne Frankenstein (an appropriate name for her) may be working up an effort to ratify the Geveva Conventions, Protocol II drawn up in 1977 which have never been ratified. Protocol II, by the way, would forbid waterboarding. As it stands now, we are not held to that prohibition, contrary to what most zero-information Americans think.

Once again the White House blames the intelligence community for their shortcomings and security breaches made possible by the President and Vice President themselves.

If a couple minutes of a You-Tube video that few actually saw provokes the murder of an American ambassador, what will a major Hollywood production with a huge box-office provoke?

Dare we hope for a clean slate in Washington?

Juan and Dianne are really upset that the acting CIA director made a public statement that “enhanced methods” HELPED in locating UBL.

I understand their concern is this may legitimize torture against us.

It would help if they didn’t get all worked up about waterboarding.

No physical damage, no foul.

For crying out loud, we use it in training our own forces!
IT IS NOT “TORTURE”!

They were going to make the prisoners listen to recordings of her speeches but decided water boarding was more humane?

Who is they? The head of the cult? I doubt that they forced it down everyones throat. I feel the same as those Wacko people in Texas. They allowed that guy to burn the dang place down with all those people in it. Yes the people thought Koresh was God but he isn’t.

Imagine; if Repubs were as 'dogged' with the TRUTH of the matter; as these people are; when it comes to the 'lie'; so necessary for the Left to achieve their goals.

There is simply NO truth; too small or inconvenient to tackle; no truth sacred enough; honorable enough; personal enough; to be left untouched - if it does NOT serve their Leftist cause.

(This film does not 'serve' the Left. Nor does this film hold to the Left's propaganda in 'defining' water boarding as torture vs it's reality as 'Enhanced Interrogation'. As well; another, Out Damn Truth, to the import this Interrogation MO provided in facilitating the capture/death of Bin Laden.)

This film stands as a direct challenge to the Left's Obama Lore. A 'lore' - albeit, hastily made and 'sold' - and one they did not imagine they would have to redefine; and defend on behalf of Obama - much less, thanks to 'Hollywood'.

The Lefties KNOW the lie that buries the truth here; just as they know the 'lie' that fills Obama's entire Presidency. They have aided, abetted; created; along with Obama; the 'Liar-in-Chief'; literally and unequivocally. . .

I really did think the multiposts were trying to make a point about torturing us by rerunning her press conferences!

Freudian slip via typo, maybe? ;-)

What happened to the investigation of NSC leaks about the Stuxnet virus attacks on Iran and disclosure of other state secrets to boost Obama’s ratings? While Feinstein’s delving into “Zero Dark Thirty” she may also want to check out “Bourne Legacy” and “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.”
