Summary:

According to a memorandum released under the Freedom of Information Act, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Office of Public Affairs used a series of conference calls to recommend changes to “Zero Dark Thirty” “to help promote an appropriate portrayal of the Agency and the Bin Ladin operation.” At least two of the changes integrated into the film misled viewers about real-life events.
