For Immediate Release: May 7, 2013
Washington, DC – Following reports that the Central Intelligence Agency edited the screenplay for “Zero Dark Thirty,” the Oscar-nominated film about the U.S. Special Forces’ Osama bin Laden operation, Human Rights First’s Raha Wala issued the following statement:
“We now know that the CIA edited Hollywood’s account of the Osama bin Laden operation. The Senate Intelligence Committee’s torture report tells the real story about how that operation was conducted and what methods were used to gain the intelligence that led to its success. Americans need to know that story. And the CIA should engage constructively with the committee to get it out.”
