I posted this to r/todayilearned but they censored my comment. Apparently, saying that torture was not effective in capturing Osama Bin Laden is too political for people too read, despite that it’s a simple fact. I also complained about that [here](https://www.reddit.com/r/RedditCensorship/comments/e7p5qb/rtodayilearned_removes_post_about_torture_as/).
>Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow have been irresponsible and inaccurate in the way they have treated this issue in their film. I am not alone in that view. Yesterday, Senators Carl Levin, Dianne Feinstein and John McCain wrote a letter to Michael Lynton, the Chairman of Sony Pictures, accusing the studio of misrepresenting the facts and “perpetuating the myth that torture is effective,” and asking for the studio to correct the false impression created by the film. The film conveys the unmistakable conclusion that torture led to the death of bin Laden. That’s wrong and dangerously so, precisely because the film is so well made.
