BREAKING: Rep. Peter King Asks For Probe Into White House’s Role in Bin Laden Movie

Posted By Hollywoodland On August 10, 2011 @ 9:23 am In Featured Story, Military, Politics | 79 Comments

Politico:

House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) on Wednesday demanded an investigation into a report that the White House is cooperating with a film on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden.

In a letter to the Defense Department and the CIA, King asked for a probe and classified briefing about any cooperation or consultation between the agencies and the film, set to be directed by Kathryn Bigelow, who made “The Hurt Locker” in 2008 which won six Oscars, including best picture and best director.

This so called “movie” is a campaign ad and should be identified and treated as such. I don’t think it is legal for the U.S. military to be part of campaign ads. Somebody needs to be thrown in jail.

Indeed.

The only people - and the numbers will be low (although, the Left will be buying up tickets and handing them out in order to give the appearance that the film’s popular)- who will be attending this ad is the choir.

Yes, illegal campaigning, and prison time for ALL of the guilty party.

I’m guessing the title of the movie is “How I Killed Osama” and the credits are:
starring Superhero Barrack Obama, with a cameo appearance by Osama Bin Laden...heh

Thanks for the sampler, peyton randolph, but I’d sooner wear rabid cats strapped to my bare chest while dancing barefooted on hot sheet metal rather than watch that ad.

Well, they sure are transparent, aren’t they?

Obama campaigned on transparency. This is such a transparent political propaganda movie, that’s for sure.

Obama will be portrayed as courageously making the call to take out Bin Laden.

It is worth looking into this to see if any laws are broken by giving Hollywood idiots classified information, just so they can make a propaganda movie.

It’s just coincidence that it will be in theaters in October 2012, at the peak of the campaign. Ya right........

I’m sure Obama will talk up killing Bin Laden as a major achievement. I can hear him now, putting in his stump speech a plug for the movie. Whoever loads up his teleprompter will undoubtedly tell us all to go see the movie to learn all the details about the operation.

What do I do if I’m walking down the street, minding my own business, and a leftist gives me tickets to go see the movie? A few people might go and see it if given free tickets.

You're right and I formidably agree, but his percentage of following law on any given day must be in the tens. Do You think he will take the fall or will be someone in his circle of skulduggery?

I wonder if there’s some sort of campaign finance legislation that could be used to block this sort of thing? It’s basically being set up as pre-electio advertising, right? The White House has its fingerprints all over it, and even the media has him dead to rights on it. Pete King should be able to tie that up easier than can be.

It is against the law to use federal employees or federal facilities in political fund-raising activities. (Federal employees work for ALL the taxpayers, not just the democratic party non-taxpayers.)

Is it still true that the majority of democrats pay NO INCOME TAXES at all?

&&&&

It will be advertised heavily on all the networks and websites that the target audience [mindless robots] watch from September to November. A similar thing happened in Maryland, when Kathleen Kennedy was running for governor. One of the cable channels just happened to promote a laudatory movie about her father, Robert Kennedy, about every 15 minutes for at least two months.

Just a coincidence!

Those living off tax dollars don't pay taxes. They consume them. This is the democrat base. If they paid taxes, they'd be Republicans.
Every election the democrats HAVE to offer some kind of new free handout or the democrat base (freeloaders) won't get out of bed to vote. Watch for those freebies, because you're the one who's going to have to pay for them. Every democrat vote has been purchased with your tax money.

True, but it's probably not so much the content of such a movie as its release date. The producers don't want to wait until the topic is stale, but the political interests want to wait until just before the election. If there's been any collusion, it's probably over that issue.

Sony Hosted Obama Fundraiser, Releasing Bin Laden Movie Before Election

According to almost every news source their is, Oboma let the producers see documents even the American tax payers weren't allowed to see. From the way they all talked about this film, Oboma was giving them all the inside info they wanted (his version only, of course).

Of course this is a Hollywood campaign commercial. If someone were to have made a heroic film about Bush after 9/11 and right before his reelection, the left would have gone so far over the edge, they'd have disappeared.

Oboma should not be using anything having to do with 9/11. It's really not his place. Without the work of the Bush administration, Osoma would still be alive today.

Start a boycott of this film (especially on Face book. It could be a teen movement), because the hypocrite Oboma has been cuddling up to and is now funding the very group that created Bin Ladin.

The efforts of the brave Seals, who are now mourning for their brothers, are being used to pimp for an empty suit President who has no hope of winning the 2012 election on his record. Hollywood will cast him as a combination of Alexander the Great, Aristotle and Captain America, in a continutation of the fraud they created prior to 2008. Obama is America’s first fictional President - is Mickey Mouse next in line?

How does this relate to “The Undefeated” ?

I am curious if Oblahblah will use the Undefeated as an excuse not to have to scrap his “re-election movie”....

It is no secret Obama has hollywood donations and fundraisers

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2011/07/fewer-fundraisers-join-obama-reelection-effort/1

Rahm’s brother? As well as there are c/o the Obama admin leaking the OBL raid details; complete with staged photo op pics. So I think the loose lips in the Obama admin (even those in Chicago that are all tied together) need investigated.

Note to King: Find out when the movie was given the green light. Just exactly how long has this thing been in the works. What SONY knew, when it knew it, and just how much it new. And was any classified info leaked in order to get the deal done.

IIRC, this thing was given the green light back in January, months before UBL was killed. If that’s the case, then that green light opens up one mother of a can of worms.

Kind of odd that the men who did the deed where shot down.

Also odd that they were shot down, in a Chinook, without escorts, by an RPG with a range of 100 m.

The movie is set to be released in mid October 2012, just before the elections, and intended to ramp up O’s image among the American voters.
