A movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden is now the subject of a drama in Washington.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has launched an investigation to determine whether the filmmakers of 'Zero Dark Thirty' had "inappropriate" access to confidential information, Politico reports.
The investigation will look into contacts between CIA officals and filmmakers. It will also examine whether the CIA provided information that led to the film's depiction of torture and the suggestion that such practices were effective in the search for bin Laden, the article said.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Armed Services ranking member John McCain, R-Ariz., have objected to the film's portrayal of the use of torture, saying it was inaccurate.
