The movie “Zero Dark Thirty” debuts nationwide today and has sparked a debate over torture and the access that filmmakers received to sensitive information. The Washington Post did a recent story on the woman who the main character in the film is modeled off of, but was barred from talking to the woman directly as directed by CIA.
