This is a pretty good article about Amazon's movie about the investigation into torture conducted by the CIA. It's an uncomfortable movie to watch. Unfortunately I think it pushes it's agenda too ham fisted and comes off looking like propaganda. Sure to stoke the rage of those already enraged and sure to be dismissed by those already pro Fuck Those Guys.
Also I think Shackford misses how pro Democrat/anti Republican it is. Yes Dianne Feinstein is shown to be a WOT hawk, but that only serves as a "Only Nixon Could Go to China" foundation for her heroism in bringing the report to light. Yes John McCain is shown speaking in support on the Senate floor for two seconds. Blink and you'll miss it. It does make a point of noting that none of the monsters responsible for what was done, at any level, have been held accountable, but it doesn't hold Obama or the Senate Democrats responsible for that.
