Uh Oh: U.S. ‘Worried’ Muslims Might Freak Out Over ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

Maybe those Obama administration members shouldn’t have divulged national security secrets to the film-makers considering how violent Islamists can get over videos.

Oh, wait…

Could the release of “Zero Dark Thirty” provoke violent protests against the U.S. in response to the film’s searing depictions of “enhanced interrogation” — the coercive, super-secret and bitterly debated methods used by the CIA against al Qaeda terrorism suspects?

Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s acclaimed docudrama about the pursuit of Osama bin Laden opened Wednesday at five theaters in New York and Los Angeles.

The film, an early Oscar favorite, graphically depicts coercive CIA interrogation techniques, including the waterboarding, domination and psychosexual humiliation of a detainee, who is, variously, collared and leashed like a dog, stuffed into a cramped “confinement box” and stripped naked for questioning in the presence of a female investigator.

Although the portrayal of such treatment given to a prisoner, regardless of his religion, may be deemed offensive by viewers of any faith, the film steers clear of depicting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad or showing the Koran being desecrated — two acts considered blasphemous by many Muslims.

Muslims have expressed outrage in response to the anti-Islam video “Innocence of Muslims,” the unintentional burning of Korans and a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper.

They find something every day to be outrageously outraged over, don’t they?
Claims that the Obama administration provided the “Zero Dark Thirty” filmmakers special access to high-level national security officials and shared sensitive information about the bin Laden raid have led to an internal Pentagon investigation of suspected security leaks.
So if anything happens we can blame Obama.

    Yes they could ignite a spontaneous protest where peaceful protestors stop by the rpg and ak-47 table at the peaceful protest and show how peaceful their religion is!

    Have some drone fire missiles into a demonstration – then deny responsibility. I’m guessing we won’t have anymore problems with Muslim demonstrations.

    This story was first reported by a sycophant to the White House. The intent is to carry the Obama meme that movies and free speech by Americans causes death and chaos in the Muslim world. It offers credibility to the now totally debunked Benghazi story concocted by Obama to cover up his stupidity regarding Muslims and their real threat.
