U.S. Sen. and former presidential candidate John McCain watched the movie Zero Dark Thirty and says it left him sick, because it’s misleading and just plan wrong.
The film suggests the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques led the U.S. to Osama bin Laden. The 76-year-old veteran adamantly disputes this.
He says waterboarding al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, did not provide information that led to bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.
Yet the movie, a copy of which McCain received Monday, indicates that’s what happened. Filmmakers fell for it hook, line and sinker, McCain said.
