The new movie "Zero Dark Thirty," about the hunt and capture of Osama bin Laden, opened in some Bay Area theaters over the weekend. While the film has been widely praised by critics, it has come under fire for its depiction of torture and the role of "enhanced interrogation" in bin Laden's capture.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Mark Bowden, national correspondent for The Atlantic, author of the post "'Zero Dark Thirty' Is Not Pro-Torture" and author of books including "The Finish: The Killing of Osama bin Laden"
  • Glenn Greenwald, columnist for The Guardian, author of the recent column "Zero Dark Thirty: CIA Hagiography, Pernicious Propaganda," former constitutional litigator and author of books including "With Liberty and Justice for Some"
