Senators Slam Zero Dark Thirty for Suggesting Torture Led to Finding Bin Laden

Dispute that interpretation of events

Three U.S. senators are slamming the makers of the Oscar-contending movie "Zero Dark Thirty," saying its suggestion that "torture" produced the tip that led U.S. operatives to Usama bin Laden is "grossly inaccurate and misleading." 

The members of the Senate Intelligence committee—Dianne Feinstein, Carl Levin and John McCain—fired off a letter Wednesday to the head of Sony Pictures Entertainment. They urged the studio to "consider correcting the impression that the CIA's use of coercive interrogation techniques led to the operation against Usama Bin Laden."
