The American Enterprise Institute held an event yesterday entitled “Watching ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ with the CIA: Separating fact from fiction.” According to the event description, the discussion centered around some of the following questions:
Just how accurate is Bigelow’s depiction of enhanced interrogation techniques? Did intelligence from detainees really play a critical role in leading investigators to bin Laden’s doorstep in Abbotabad? Has President Obama's decision to curtail the interrogation program placed America’s national security at risk?
The panel was moderated by AEI Senior Fellow Marc Thiessen and featured General Michael Hayden (ret.), Former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, John A. Rizzo, Former Chief Legal Officer at the Central Intelligence Agency, and Jose Rodriguez, Former Director of the National Clandestine Service.
