<i>From top: Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.),  Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.).</i><br><br>

A trio of Senate leaders have condemned the Kathryn Bigelow movie "Zero Dark Thirty," calling elements of its dramatization of the Osama bin Laden manhunt "grossly inaccurate and misleading."

In a letter to Sony Pictures official Michael Lynton signed by the senators --  Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) -- the three stated:

"We write to express our deep disappointment with the movie 'Zero Dark Thirty.' We believe the film is grossly inaccurate and misleading in its suggestion that torture resulted in information that led to the location of Usama bin Laden," wrote the senators, all of whom are members of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
