With the release of the controversial Hollywood movie, Zero Dark 30, we started to hear a support to torture from people who were not before.
We are asking you to do your own homework and learn more about this fake claims and baseless argument.
Pls take a moment and examine these courageous statements from our legislators (Republicans and Democrats)...
"[The] CIA did not first learn about the existence of the [Osama bin Laden] courier from detainees subjected to coercive interrogation techniques. Nor did the agency discover the courier's identity from detainees subjected to coercive techniques."
- Joint statement from: Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chairman, Senate Intelligence Committee, and Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) Chairman, Senate Armed Services Committee
"It was not torture or cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment of detainees that got us the major leads that ultimately enabled our intelligence community to find Osama bin Laden."
- Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
And Leon Panetta, Secretary of Defense and former CIA Director, had this to say:
"In the end, no detainee in CIA custody revealed the facilitator/courier’s full true name or specific whereabouts. This information was discovered through other intelligence means."
