McCain Says Film's Torture Depiction is Wrong

Sen. John McCain watched the new movie Zero Dark Thirty and said it "left him sick" because it suggests the CIA's harsh interrogation techniques led the United States to find Osama bin Laden, the AP reports.

Said McCain: "Not only did the use of enhanced interrogation techniques on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed not provide us with key leads on bin Laden's courier, Abu Ahmed, it actually produced false and misleading information."

McCain spent 5 1/2 years enduring brutal treatment by his North Vietnamese captors during the Vietnam War and has insisted that the waterboarding of al-Qaida's No. 3 leader did not provide information that led to the bin Laden's compound in Pakistan.
