If the film uses an ahistorical dramatic device of personal torture at American hands to explain the main character's descent in terrorism, then it most certainly does intend to elicit the audience's sympathy for the terrorist. Cuban does not address this crucial point in his response, so clearly he's just blowing smoke and wrapping himself in the flag. For Mark Cuban, patriotism really is the last refuge of a scoundrel.
