I wonder why they didn't think about that before all that information was released to Gollywood? information released gollywood Obviously.

Via Washington Times: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/dec/20/us-on-alert-f... Could the release of “Zero Dark Thirty” provoke violent protests against the U.S. in response to the film’s searing depictions of “enhanced interrogation” — the coercive, super-secret and bitterly debated methods used by the CIA against al Qaeda terrorism suspects?

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s acclaimed docudrama about the pursuit of Osama bin Laden opened Wednesday at five theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

The film, an early Oscar favorite, graphically depicts coercive CIA interrogation techniques, including the waterboarding, domination and psychosexual humiliation of a detainee, who is, variously, collared and leashed like a dog, stuffed into a cramped “confinement box” and stripped naked for questioning in the presence of a female investigator.

Although the portrayal of such treatment given to a prisoner, regardless of his religion, may be deemed offensive by viewers of any faith, the film steers clear of depicting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad or showing the Koran being desecrated — two acts considered blasphemous by many Muslims.

Muslims have expressed outrage in response to the anti-Islam video “Innocence of Muslims,” the unintentional burning of Korans and a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper.

Although “Zero Dark Thirty” doesn’t enter into any of that territory and nothing suggests a similar chain of events will follow the film’s release, a senior defense official said U.S. forces are always on alert.

“I doubt extremist murderers are going to garner much sympathy in the West or in the Muslim world, but we’ll keep an eye on things,” the official said.

Claims that the Obama administration provided the “Zero Dark Thirty” filmmakers special access to high-level national security officials and shared sensitive information about the bin Laden raid have led to an internal Pentagon investigation of suspected security leaks.
The Pentagon inspector general determined this week that Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael Vickers provided Ms. Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal with the restricted name of a U.S. special operations officer who helped plan the raid.
The inspector general referred the case to the Justice Department. The Pentagon denies any public disclosure to the filmmakers about intelligence-collection methods and downplays its level of cooperation with the filmmakers.
“Methods used to gather information, or intelligence, has never been something that we provided,” said Army Lt. Col. James Gregory, a Pentagon spokesman who added that the interrogation scenes in the movie are dramatizations based on research by the filmmakers.
He said Pentagon officials did not pre-screen the movie and were not involved in writing the script.
Its information-sharing was limited to “overarching strategic atmospherics,” which included the general timeline regarding who knew what and when, how U.S. officials made the decision to conduct the operation versus other options, and the risks involved with choosing that particular option, Col. Gregory said.
Whether administration disavowals dispel perceptions of an advisory role on the film remains to be seen.

The State Department, the New York Police Department, a theater in New York showing the film this week, and NBC Universal Pictures, which is distributing the film internationally, did not respond to queries by The Washington Times.

    Obama wants the movie released....it glorifies him as some supreme leader and it will also be the catalyst for the "crisis" he needs to declare the dictatorship he lust for. It's amazing that people fail to see that everything Obama does, even what appears to go wrong for him, is by his design to push us towards his dictatorship.

    With all the billions of dollars that have been spent on the so-called Homeland Security, we shouldn't have nothing to worry about from these people.

    I'm less worried about that than about communists now running Amerika. Yes, Obama but also most of Congress and an entire bureaucracy.

    The only way of getting rid of that is getting rid of FedGov. Is there any other way than the coming collapse?
