Have you any documentation, Jim, that the United States hanged Japanese soldiers for waterboarding Chase J. Nielsen? Have you any documentation showing that Japanese soldiers were hanged by the US solely for waterboarding American prisoners of war, or might there have been a much more detailed list of abuse which led to those executions?

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?
