OVERRATED: The "Zero Dark Thirty" pro-torture argument

One of the most acclaimed -- and controversial -- movies of 2012 recently came to DVD, and maybe it's seeing its scenes of "enhanced interrogation techniques" on the small screen, but the idea that the film somehow defends torture doesn't, well, hold water. If anything, the film forces the viewer to confront the raw reality behind the hunt for Osama bin Laden and raises the question of whether that cost justified the results.
