SEAL Team 6 The Movie?
IBD Editorials ^ | August 9, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 08/09/2011 4:42:44 PM PDT by Kaslin

Politics: The president's Hollywood friends are planning an exploitation flick to hype his role in the bin Laden raid to debut three weeks before the 2012 election. What does the Federal Election Commission think of this?

We all remember the famous war room photo of the assembled White House multitude, including President Obama, breathlessly watching the raid that killed Osama bin Laden unfold in real time. Some have suggested that the photo was staged or altered, if only because it shows Vice President Joe Biden's eyes open and mouth shut.

The phrase "on his watch" has been overused by presidents and their critics to claim credit and assign blame for events the Oval Office occupant may have had little to do with or little control over or that were set into motion long before. The bin Laden raid is no exception.

Now we get word via a Maureen Dowd column in the New York Times of a Sony-produced movie being put together by the same pair that brought us the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker" — screenwriter Mark Boal and director Kathryn Bigelow.

The movie about the raid is set to premiere, Dowd writes, "as Obamaland was hoping, on Oct. 12, 2012 — perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost to a campaign that has grown tougher."

Somehow this planned October surprise is no surprise, considering the shallowness of this administration and its supporters. Dowd is not our favorite source, but she is wired unto "Obamaland" and reports that "Boal got welcomed to the upper echelons of the White House and the Pentagon and showed up recently — to the surprise of some military officers — at a CIA ceremony celebrating the hero SEALs."

Of course, by October of next year, I doubt that anyone except Obama’s Hollywood friends will be able to actually afford to go out to a movie.....

But you just know that the actors, director, etc., blah blah will be featured on a week’s worth of the MSM talk shows.

I’m going to predict, since Hollywood never seems to get it right, that this is going to backfire on Obama completely.

By the time Hollyweird is finished with the flick, Ubama will actually be wearing Seal Team insignia.

Of course, Hollyweird will leave out the part where Ubama is personally responsible for the deaths of 21 Seal Team members and the shoot-down of the helicopter in Afghanistan.

I bet Demi Moore will star in it. She will be the one who personally kills the terrorist leader whatever they choose to call him.

Poor timing. All the people will think about is those brave men who were killed. I doubt if anyone will want to see it.

Wearing the Insignia....He will be the Leader of the Seal Team who survives the helicopter crash.....Single handedly storms the compound pulling grenade pins out with his teeth and firing an M60 in one arm! It will be the worst Propaganda since Mikey Moore!

This will not turn out good for anything or anyone, except if Micheal Moore directs and produces it...

Maybe if the Dept. of Homeland Security got into it...You know the ones that brought out the video telling us that all white people in hoodies are terrorists...

This ought to be a hoot of a film.../sarc
