enhanced techniques for marketing torture

The CIA had a bad week, with the approval of a Senate Intelligence Committee report on the agency's post-9/11 interrogation program and a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that treatment of prisoner Khaled el-Masri "violated the most basic guarantees of human decency."

Hollywood to the rescue? 

A new government-sanctioned film Zero Dark Thirty tries, and fails, to make the case that torture "works." The premier of the film has released a torrent of reviews by critics of the U.S. torture program who are outraged by that lie, that exceptions to universal prohibition of the practice would even be proposed, that the U.S. would place itself above international law.

Inside Story posits "Has torture become acceptable?" Of course not. Video here.

Zero Dark Thirty opens in the Bay Area January 4th
