So the lefties condemn torture to extract usable information from terrorists that could save American lives. But they are OK with Obama ordering the killing of American citizens without due process

Usable information ... KSM was waterboarded 183 times from 2003-2004 and all that useful intel allowed OBL to be tracked down 7 years later? In fact the only thing he said about the courier was that he was a minor player that left al Qaida to get married, which almost everyone seemed to accept. If anything this film demonstrated that it was the dogged determination of one CIA agent who used plain old detective work to first track the courier down which ultimately lead them to the compound in Abottabad!

Another critic whose morality is that of a rubber band.

Sheesh, now I sound like the conservative and you sound like the liberal but here goes: what did you want us to do, send Al-Aulaqi an email asking him to please come in to answer a few questions?

In 2001, he presided at the funeral of the father of Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who later e-mailed him extensively in 2008–2009 before the Fort Hood shootings. During the period of Al-Aulaqi's later radical period after 2006–2007, when he went into hiding, he was associated with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian who attempted the 2009 Christmas Day bombing of an American airliner

So it's swell to blast innocent women and children with bombs from drones but immoral to waterboard a terrorist to save innocent lives? And then you wonder why liberals are considered hypocritical and/or stupid. According to a 2007 Red Cross report KSM was subjected to a total of 5 waterboarding sessions. "The water was poured 183 times -- there were 183 'pours,' " the official explained, adding that "each pour was a matter of seconds."

Are you willing to test your theory that torture doesn't work?

Weeks before the Oscars, Sony Pictures, the studio behind "Zero Dark Thirty," put out this statement: "We are outraged that any responsible member of the Academy would use their voting status in (the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences) as a platform to advance their own political agenda. The film should be judged free of partisanship. To punish an artist's right of expression is abhorrent. This community, more than any other, should know how reprehensible that is."

To what was Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal referring?
