Obama under fire for giving Hurt Locker director access to Navy SEALs to make Bin Laden film
Dailymail ^ | 8,10,11

Posted on 08/10/2011 6:25:36 PM PDT by InvisibleChurch

Hollywood is looking to shed light on the top-secret commandos who killed the world’s top terrorist, and the White House is helping, one congressman says.

The U.S.'s top brass is reportedly giving filmmakers the inside scoop to all things Navy SEAL for a movie about the squad who took out Osama bin Laden.

Rep Peter King has called for a probe into the access allowed to filmmakers for a movie about SEAL Team 6

The New York Times reported this week that military officers were shocked when writer Mark Boal showed up at a CIA ceremony in honour of Team 6.

Boal, along with director Kathryn Bigelow, wrote the Oscar-winning Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker, and is now scribing a Navy SEAL film.

For the project, Mr Boal and Miss Bigelow reportedly have been granted unique access to the inner workings of the Pentagon.

Rep. Peter King, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said letting Hollywood in on sensitive information like SEAL Team 6 may cost lives.

In addition, the lawmaker contends that granting such privileges could tarnish the war on terror and other disastrous consequences.

Mr King asked the inspectors general of the CIA and the Department of Defense to determine what consultations occurred in the White House about providing Hollywood with access to covert military operators and clandestine CIA officers.

In a letter dated August 10, Mr King demanded an investigation into 'ongoing leaks of classified information regarding sensitive military operations.'

A sane Pentagon would insist that touchy secret details be sanitized, changed, or omitted from a show like this. But it’s unclear to me whether the current Pentagon is sane. I’m sure Obama sees this as his hawk credentials.

The producers of the Hurt Locker are also the MOST HATED amongst the bit torrent download community.

250,000 lawsuits have been filed against people who “downloaded’ the file through a small network.

Obama is all about PR

That’s why he’s such a failure - he’s not a leader, he’s a political marketer.

Here is the link that shows that the Pentagon ended collaboration with these same people on Hurt Locker, because they changed the original approved script.

I have written my Representative and Senators saying to Stop this madness.

We lost 30+ SEALS which the Administration readily admits could have been retaliation for the killing of OBL.

Why is the Pentagon or the Administration leaking information that is for their own political gain while putting more of our Military in harms way?

This OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Dems look at the brave men of the Seals teams and see stage props to help them get reelected. The film's suppose to come out just before the election. It needs to be counted as a campaign contribution.

.............Miss Bigelow through her support behind then-Senator Barack Obama in 2008, while he was campaigning for president.

She told StarGlimpse.com: 'I hope and pray that U.S. forces will be withdrawn immediately from Iraq, and only one man is capable of doing that, that's Mr. Barack Obama.'...............

Wowsa. And Jay Carney, press secretary, is defending this junk calling it "ridiculous" that anyone is concerned about the safety of our SEALs? Hello?

We used to have patriotic film makers in this country. Men like Frank Capra and John Ford. And we used to have patriotic journalists, like Ernie Pyle. Now we have a bunch of politically motivated bums.

K5, that is the most obvious question. How much ‘access’ was this Hollywood group given; and when did it start?

Could the ‘unprecidented access’ have compromised the mission?

Miss Bigelow’s film, which is still untitled, is due out October 12 – less than a month before the presidential election.

By the time it hits the dollar theaters, the election will be over.

I had heard that Thomas Dewey, prior to the 1944 election vs FDR, had known of the Japanese Code being broken by us a couple of years earlier.
From the story I had heard etc, Dewey refused to use the information as he figured it was none of the Japanese ‘business’ that we knew what they were doing.

Imagine a pol sitting on that kind of info today. HA...

Seriously, this man must be impeached. He blames our financial troubles on a big, messy, tough democracy. He is giving classified information to moviemakers to produce a movie for his reelection. (Incidentally, are the producers going to give their profits back to the American people since we funded the raid.) He is using the return of the remains of the Navy Seals as a photo-op against the will of the families. This guy has to go.

Sony Pictures. All of my electronics are Sony, but it’s time to switch brands since they feel that they need to inject themselves into the election.

Obama has absolutely no shame- using our military in his sorry effort to get re-elected.

Only one answer- the ditz making this POC WILL get an Oscar, and that’s a given. But “as for me and my house”, we will not put ONE penny in her pocket. Might I suggest that we all choose not to see this piece of dreck?

If civilian filmmakers are given what is the most top secret information on our nation’s elite forces, our future security will be compromised. I hope Peter King can stop this affront to our best and brightest before it’s too late.
