-- -- -- Any questions.
That from zero dark thirty a film about the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Three US senators -- -- sent a letter to Sony Pictures.
Asking the filmmakers to state that the use of torture.
As it's shown in the film was not based on fact.
What -- those senators John McCain who himself was tortured as a POW in Vietnam here's what he told Greta about that last night.
We showed our did displeasure and I think they should acknowledge that they were even given wrong information they have but they had a lot of access to the CIA fact.
One of the there's there's an investigation going on in about some of the information that they used.
And clearly I think they got the slam.
Those who are defending.
In my view what is unconscionable and that is torturing people.
So retired US navy captain Chuck Nash boxers military -- -- -- -- -- -- good morning Jim -- I've made this this letter is.
-- in that this is Hollywood it concludes by saying please consider correcting the impression that the CIA's use of course of interrogation techniques led to the operation.
Against Osama bin Laden it did not.
Are they writer we kind of out there a little bit on -- I think we're engaged in the theater of the absurd bill you know here we got real world problems and these senators are concerned that Hollywood maybe got it wrong and is over dramatized and something.
I mean real world damage is done when the vice president works out they didn't need of a classified unit.
That conducts a real world operation when when.
The leaks come out of the highest levels of our national security team and wind up in books -- New York time articles that's the damage that's being done that somebody might.
You know forget that they're sitting in a darkened theater reading popcorn watching a fantasy movie.
Yep what would you expect there are -- the producer David respond to this no.
I mean it's through the whole thing is really that's silly and it and it and it's below the level.
Of this stature of these people and I don't even know why they're messing around with terrorists it's grandstand.
This is what Sony said the fell on the screen -- the film shows that no single method was necessarily responsible for solving the manhunt.
Nor can any single scene taking an isolation fairly captured the totality.
Of efforts to film dramatizes one more line here one thing is clear this single greatest factor and finding the world's most dangerous man.
Where's the hard work and dedication of the intelligence professionals who spent years working on this global effort.
McCain and feinstein's point is this.
Did not give us the tip.
That led to the courier that ultimately found the captured and killed Osama bin Laden do you agree with that or not.
I don't care.
I don't care and I don't think most people care in fact most people when they go in the movies and they watch the bad guy get something they had done to him.
You know they look at this as yet it's almost violence fantasy which is packaged out of most of Hollywood products.
And you look at the real world you see guys like major Hasan -- three years ago.
You know jumped up yelled I'll lock bar and killed thirteen people and we haven't gotten to trial because they haven't figured out.
How it whether we should shave his beard -- not one judge got fired and now they're saying okay wolf it's against military regulations but yet you can you can keep your beard on.
And three years later -- -- to trial.
The world's upside down bill we gotta get serious about the threats and start focusing on solving real problems and forget Hollywood.
It's interesting because -- I can't remember a time were such distinguished senators.
Have given so much attention to something they came out of Hollywood.
It's beyond that you were talking about Hollywood hypocrisy with our producers -- that -- -- what do you mean by that.
Well I mean if you look at what -- package into most of their products.
You know some of its really nice and and everything but.
That good people out there package this stuff.
And yet they're all about all the touchy Feely.
That causes and things.
It's just that.
Doing one thing.
And then talking a big game elsewhere.
The whole thing is it's just hypocritical well I I assume that senator became -- continued talk about this because the movies are slowly coming out right now.
And is gonna get a lot of attention.
But again probably it's a movie.
It is in movies and with a calculator Merry Christmas you vet -- are more.
