(RNS) Nothing was tortured more in the making of Kathryn Bigelow’s film “Zero Dark Thirty” than the truth about torture. By Morris Davis and the Rev. Richard Killmer.


  1. Or it could be that those involved in the torture in the first place aren’t being completely honest with the techniques used? Do we really think that there is anything behind the rhetoric that the US doesn’t use enhanced torture?

  2. How can it be that many religions ‘claim-to-be’ against torture, unless of course it’s ‘god-approved eternal-torture’ directed at children and adults in order to terrorize them into belief-? (and tithing $ to a church)

    Absolutely disgusting and not at all a moral stance. IMO
