  •  I saw it-- because of its 'supposed' depiction... (9+ / 0-)

    of events as a 'realistic' or 'actual' chronology leading to the assassination/capture of UBL.

    its assertion that torture by the US was successful in procuring information- which was widely debunked.

    and even if it had been successful, the flagrant display of such means is shameful regarding our moral high ground as perceived by other nations.

    depictions of injustice in other movies regards either a reenactment of known or believed historical events, or an accepted aberration of events that are recognized by the many as fictional. this movie made no assertion that torture was fictional- the way the movie unfolded- it strongly intimated the contrary.

    although i boycott everything from restaurants to tv stations- i did see the movie last night and felt that the extended torture scenes were morally repugnant. it bothered me.

    i don't expect agreement from all parties- this is just my personal take on it.
