And your evidence for this is what, besides idle conjecture I mean? It couldn't possibly be that analysts are evaluating incredible amounts of evidence, sometimes literally taking years to get to something. It couldn't be that people make mistakes, or just because the name was in a file there was no clear evidence linking it to the correct individual. No, it must be that because a few field agents were waterboarding someone on the other side of the world all the analysts pushed their work to the side and played video games. That's the only logical explanation

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?
