Lord Summerisle: Heh, "act heroically". You tortured countless people and then shot an unarmed, sleeping man and two women. BTW: you also created the Taliban.

You who?

AlgertMan: At least QT isn't going to get it. The actors save his ego stroke movies.

gopher321: I saw Zero Dark Thirty and would have been far more impressed if it was a more honest film. Like Osama bin Laden was created and supported by the US in the first place. Kinda takes away from the whole "good vs. evil" bullshiat in that film.

I remember another line from that film that made me laugh. The main lead actress said something like she was hired by the CIA right out of high school, it was her first job. I think she was saying it to some Chief of Defense guy in a cafeteria...hired right out of high school huh? And your first job was being present in CIA torture sessions in "Black Ops" areas?

One hell of a apprenticeship program you're running there, CIA.

Anyways, fark that film.

Well I was 19 and trusted to make the call to drop a fark ton of explosives on insurgents. Also to determine whether or not my team would be in the right to basically murder the hell out of someone for acting fishy based on ROEs. And handling $1 million+ worth of equipment with a lot less supervision than you might think. The military is weird. I assume the CIA isn't that much different.
