“‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Brings Torture to Big Screen” - By Rachel Kahn-Troster

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/zero_dark_thirty_brings_torture_to_big_screen_by_rachel_kahn_troster/

Rabbi Rachel Kahn-Troster’s blog, printed in The Jewish Daily Forward (below) expresses well why torture is contrary to Jewish values and tradition.

She is Director of North American Programs for Rabbis for Human Rights-North America and a board member of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture.

The resources she cites (below) show why, in truth, torture does not work and that the torture shown in this remarkable film, “Zero Dark Thirty” did NOT lead to information identifying Osama bin Laden’s courier, per Senators John McCain, Diane Feinstein and Carl Levin with access to classified CIA information.

Rachel and Rabbis for Human Rights-North America have done us a tremendous service in bringing this material to public attention, and I am happy to post the links to her article and this information here.
