Movie reviewer Roger Friedman writes that President Obama is only featured once in the movie Zero Dark Thirty – the new movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden – during a waterboarding scene.

President Obama makes a brief appearance seen off a TV and it’s not necessarily positive. While American intelligence is water boarding prisoners, Obama is seen saying he doesn’t believe in torture. The whole first fifteen minutes of so is taken up with the waterboarding of a prisoner. Once you see it, you’ll be writing to your congressman to prevent it from happening again. But Obama disappears after that. And the CIA and the military take over.
