Michael Totten is an independent journalist with rare knowledge of the Middle East. I had a brief email exchage with him back around 2003, before he was famous.
The torture debate does not interest me. Ex Cathedra is allergic to moralists. Anyone who thinks that "harsh interrogation" has not been going on forever, that it was something cooked up fresh by the eeeeevil Bush-Cheney folks, is naive.
What made me suspicious is that the movie, by a woman, is centered on a woman. As one commentor wrote: Oh, and we are meant to believe that the war on terror is being fought essentially by Charlie's Angels.
I think I'll pass.
