Why I Won't Pay To See 'Zero Dark Thirty'

And neither should you.  I'm sure it's an entertaining film and I'm interested to watch it, but I'm not going to pay to watch propaganda.  Torture expert Ali Soufan:

"Portraying torture as effective risks misleading the next generation of Americans that one of our government's greatest successes came about because of the efficacy of torture. It's a disservice both to our history and our national security.
While filmmakers have the right to say what they want, government officials don't have the right to covertly provide filmmakers with false information to promote their own interests. Providing selective information about a classified program means there is no free market of ideas, but a controlled market subject to manipulation. That's an abuse of power."

So long, "GREG SEMINARA". You'll have to go smear your feces on someone else's wall.
