I'm still haven't stopped speaking about the eight -- during the commercial break but.
We're gonna go -- to another topic anyway the new bin Laden -- -- zero dark thirty premiered last night in Los Angeles.
-- the dramas based on the story of a real life CIA agent -- successfully tracked down the world's most wanted terrorist.
And there appears to be drama about the same -- off screen as well.
According to the Washington Post the and I identified operative -- passed over for a big promotion after the -- And has allegedly argued with her colleagues over credit.
For the mission so day know that movie premieres next week but this woman is supposedly the central figure.
And she's yelled at the central figure because she's the one that pushed over and over for years saying that it's the courier it's gonna lead -- For bin Laden and she's causing a bit of a -- because.
If she didn't get this promotion and that she hit reply all to an email announcement of the awards.
That everyone was getting she got one saying.
You guys tried to obstruct me you fought me only I deserve the award.
Maybe not good to shoot inside the tent on this -- I thought the -- -- was -- George Bush intelligence isn't this operation.
As your name Dana.
Okay that's okay.
-- a visit that that when I read about this today with the first time I had heard about her.
-- think it is it's hard for me to understand -- to know I don't know the facts.
The the blurring the lines between Hollywood and fiction and making -- a good story and reality next I suppose that because of the attention to the movie that we're going to find out a lot more.
And also it's it's but it's fascinating to think that.
It was -- if it was if it's true -- -- her efforts to be everything.
No we got that it this way go this way go this way and she's determined it's a little bit like one of our favorite programs that we watch on here and the heroin and homeland.
It sounds like having it done it could be a fictional character or actually.
Could be -- -- adjusted to find out more what do you think it is.
I think it's very interesting that everyone was especially the left to say oh here's a Kathryn Bigelow movie for -- she's she's got great information is -- -- from the FBI and inside yet but.
But -- at building and then.
When she makes an accurate portrayal of the movie where waterboarding actually takes place where the information gleaned from water or from an enhanced interrogation.
Leads to the courier which leads -- Osama bin Laden all the so -- wait a minute.
Don't don't glorify waterboarding don't glorify torture they wanted something different -- liberals and in Hollywood and outside Hollywood.
What is different part depiction of how that the info was she's come under team.
Fire because I guess she's worked very -- she's accused of working very closely with Hollywood she becomes the star.
Of the -- than coincidence but Greg I got to ask you about -- -- New York magazine critic.
David Edelstein -- zero dark thirty as morally.
Reprehensible because I guess there's a scene -- waterboarding so shocker just like BM the video the last -- but yeah video they're trying to censor.
Another movie that they get they don't agree with it.
Like I always say waterboarding more like awesome boarding but despicable truth here is.
Everybody wants that we'll never say this but everybody wants torture on the table if you ask one up a person one question.
Say your child or your spouse was abducted and at a person in custody who had the information in time was running out.
Would you mind would you mind if we used every means available to extract information.
If you would deny that your line.
Maybe even if you're liberal -- -- -- that's a lot of senator Feinstein says that there was no torture involved -- Obama's that there is no torture involved this is just a movie.
So why are liberals so up in -- well.
At first of all I think there are people now who see that this woman who had been for years pushing the idea that -- having nothing to do -- waterboarding.
And it it did -- question is it's torture.
It's flat out torture and a and the United States is Sampras said the embedded app but you didn't answer my question what would you question -- question -- it was a spouse.
-- They I would I would take any gun and put their head but that's -- the point I'm not the government the United States.
That's my I would help the government would do the same thing content with the company that was it was my family -- -- -- that point because you're gaining information that would hopefully stop a terrorist attack that Michael thousands of people that ability of this week you say Oregon this who may have got to go about it -- was as CIA the Gibson tells -- that the FBI team.
Isn't just a movie.
Okay and -- liberals are saying this is reprehensible they're allowed to make any kind of and I'll probably get -- they want and so right so you just pointed out that what Dianne Feinstein had said.
I know what that joint commission's and there are all the investigations.
Into waterboarding I know them very well.
And I would take the word of those people.
Over Hollywood's depiction of it any diet but a lot of people are gonna see this -- -- he acts I think it's a good thing.
I'd I'd I'd I do think it is a good thing I don't buy it it's.
Sometimes it's difficult to separate.
-- Hollywood from the truth.
But in this case it sounds like.
The liberals are mad and there's good reason for it I'm not.
Where you can log on and liberals are against his -- and I have not heard that much there's others of us a little.
And I can die of diarrhea and time again -- -- that out -- and it's all the liberal it's actually well The New Yorker isn't exactly conservative magazine but it's not getting rave reviews for the -- -- but I guess it's just some money ranked.
Free speech they can make a movie without being jailed.
No you can't -- -- it is and was taken exception to action and -- -- and coming up could --
