Torture didn't help get bin Laden.

The people claiming that torture was necessary after 9-11 seem to be living inside a Hollywood movie script instead of reality. Zero Dark Thirty was a very well-made film, but it's not some kind of historical document that proves the value of torture in getting Osama bin Laden.

The fact is that torture did not help get bin Laden. It's time to put cinematic fantasy away and focus on the facts.
