Mark Boal Addresses Torture Issue in The Wrap

Let’s start with the truth:

“We write to express our deep disappointment with the movie Zero Dark Thirty. We believe the film is grossly inaccurate and misleading in its suggestion that torture resulted in information that led to the location of Usama bin Laden…

Regardless of what message the filmmakers intended to convey, the movie clearly implies that the CIA’s coercive interrogation techniques were effective in eliciting important information related to a courier for Usama bin Laden.  We have reviewed the CIA records and know that this is incorrect…

No detainee reported on the courier’s full name or specific whereabouts, and no detainee identified the compound where Usama bin Laden was hidden…
–Senators Feinstein, Levin & McCain (letter to Sony Pictures)
