I have not seen and will not see Zero Dark Thirty. I would like to see it to judge for myself what story it tells, what messages it sends. But I simply cannot stomach the torture scenes that I have been told dominate the first half of the film. I cannot endure even staged torture scenes because I represent a man who was tortured by our country. Over the seven years I have been meeting with him, I have witnessed the deeply immoral acts imposed on my client through his words as well as the impact it has had on his mental health. It has left me raw — psychologists call it secondary trauma. Hearing about deprivation, degradation and inhumane treatment directly from the person who experienced it is a terrible experience. I wish I did not know what I know.
