Taibbi on Zero Dark Thirty
As usual he is insightful as well as acerbic. He makes much the same point I made here, but with much more depth and articulation. That point being, if it's supposed to be a realistic account, then why not the realism of how ineffective torture is, how is enraged the Arab world against us, how it morally corrupted us. And all of which was bin Laden's plan to begin with, that we played right into his hands. See his review for much more.
