Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement in response to media reports about the movie "Zero Dark Thirty':

Congressional criticism of "Zero Dark Thirty' from both sides of the interrogation debate strikes me as odd--it is entertainment, not a documentary. What's next--a Senate inquiry of the "Bourne' trilogy or "24'? It also seems fruitless to demand more information from the CIA about its detention and interrogation program several weeks after the Committee voted out its final report on the program. The CIA has already provided this information among the millions of records received by the Committee over the past four years of its investigation. Those documents and testimony provided to the Committee support the Acting CIA Director's message to the workforce that "multiple streams of intelligence led CIA analysts to conclude that Bin Ladin was hiding in Abbottabad" and some of that information came "from detainees subjected to enhanced techniques."
