Since Washington was also hit on Sept. 11, 2001, why doesn't Columbia Pictures do us the courtesy of opening here on Dec. 19 along with NY and LA, even if at only one theater (like Loew's AMC Gerogetown, or Landmark Bethesda Row). Or perhaps Regal's Potomac Yard or AMC Shirlington, the closest theater complexes to the Pentagon.
On Tuesday, Dec. 11, the Washington Post has a story (by Greg Miller) about the young female operative who helped trck down bin Laden's location from a courier, here. The article describes the CIA as "middle school with clearances". Detached, schizoid personalities are common. I could probably have done her job the same way had I been employed there. The Post offers a video interview of director Bigelow.
