Rep. King: CIA, Pentagon, too close to filmmakers

By Larry Magasak

WASHINGTON (AP) - A House committee chairman is charging that the CIA and Defense Department jeopardized national security by cooperating too closely with filmmakers producing a movie on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King first raised questions about the bin Laden movie last summer, but said Wednesday that newly released documents confirm his suspicions.

The filmmakers are director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, who won Academy Awards for the motion picture "The Hurt Locker."

Defense Department spokesman George Little said the Pentagon engages on a regular basis with the entertainment industry on movie projects, to make the films as realistic as possible.

King, a New York Republican, said that Bigelow and Boal had extremely close, unprecedented and potentially dangerous collaboration with the CIA and DOD.

    This movie will be nothing more than a 100 minute campaign ad for the usurper. Truth be known, the decision to strike was made by the Secretary of Defense because the absent ‘commander in chief’ couldn’t be pulled away from his golf game.

    There is already a Pakistani doctor paying a high price for Obama’s campaign.

      I wonder if the Pakistani doctor sentenced to 40 years in prison or the relatives of the members of Seal team 6 who were in the helicopter shot down shortly after BHO claimed credit for getting Osama by using Seal Team 6, can find a lawyer to sue him for causing wrongful imprisonment or wrongful deaths?

      I seem to remember the motto: “Loose lips sink ships” and politicians and media people seem to love to tell the public how important they are by releasing top secret information that can cause the deaths of those in the military. Since we won’t enforce treason laws, how about allowing our predatory lawyers to get into the act?
