    I saw Zero Dark Thirty today very good it does not take any political sides and covers the ten year hunt for UBL very well you really appreciate the year's of work the CIA and other intelligence agencies went through over those ten years. As for the interrogation scenes that got so much hype that was somewhat overblown in my opinion these people were not treated nice to sure but they did not get beaten with whips or get electric shocks or get bamboo under the fingernails I think Kathryn Bigelow got shafted for being passed over for best director at the Academy Awards I hope this wins for best picture but for political reasons I doubt it will.

    I personally am not going to base my feelings on the 10 year hunt for OBL and especially the CIA's work, on some hollywood movie.

    I'm sure it's entertaining though.

    The cop who shot the Fort Hood terrorist scumbag who was massacreing our troops....she too would not get a pension, rich retirement, etc, if she quit before her retirement age/years of service came about. The reason our military, cops, firemen are heroes is that they do those jobs KNOWING there is not pot of gold waiting on them. Otherwise, it would be like a lottery.


    As for Zero Dark Thirty- awesome movie!! The only gripe I had was that the lead actress, in the scene with the SEALS preplanning, she came across very snobbish when talking to them. I cant imagine in real life that a mere analyst would come across so arrogant and snobbish to SEALS like she did in that scene.
