Oddly enough, no one ever seemed to care about depictions of torture on shows such as 24, Homeland, Sleeper Cell, or even Battlestar Galactica (Which I would say are FAR worse than those in ZDT).
Oh right, those were only TV shows. Not real. Guess what, ZDT was “BASED ON ACTUAL EVENTS”. Guess what, so is Wikipedia. “Based on” does NOT say “THIS HAPPENED AS YOU SEE IT.”
