Skip to comments.Osama bin Laden movie leaks investigated by Defense Department
Posted on 01/05/2012 11:09:49 AM PST by ColdOne
Rep. Peter King said Thursday that the Defense Department has launched an investigation into whether its personnel leaked information to producers for a film to be directed by Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow on the May 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
King, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, previously called for a probe to look into any sort of cooperation between federal agencies and producers for the movie, which at the time had been scheduled for an October release a month before the elections.
The leaks that followed the successful bin Laden mission led to the arrests of Pakistanis and put in danger the missions heroes and their families, King said in a statement Thursday. Privately, individuals in the intelligence and special operations communities expressed support for my request for a probe. I look forward to an update on the investigation and actions taken thus far.
The Defense Department said in a letter released Thursday by Kings committee that Pentagon officials decided to launch the investigation immediately after an initial review by the Office of the Deputy Inspector General for Intelligence and Special Program Assessments. The letter from the Pentagon was marked Dec. 23, 2011, and King received it last Friday, according to his office.
Meanwhile, the CIA was creating a new policy in response to Kings request. The agencys Office of Public Affairs was developing a new guideline to create a single point of reference that will govern future interactions with the entertainment industry, according to a Nov. 8, 2011, letter to King from the CIA that was also released Thursday.

Sounds like a fishing expedition...they got nothing.
I can’t wait to see the movie and find out if barry was on the front nine or back nine when the mission launched.
Are you kidding, it will show him rapelling out of the Blackhawk firing a Ma Duce single handed.

IMO- The desert dog died a long time ago. This is a fictional tail created to give street credit to a lying muslim running our United States.
zer0bama’s or Seal Team 6’s there seems to be a discrepancy
I would tend to believe the Seal Team
BHO would win the academy award for best actor.
OCTOBER RELEASE on the Movie! This is the Obama October surprise. Hollywood is going to make him look Presidential before the election.
Or he will look stupid....
So what? The democrats do it all the time!
How convenient... A single point of reference... in other words, one person allowed to put out the details they want to put out without any other dissenting information. Might as well put his campaign office in charge of it.
If this is a PS request, then please consider putting the rappelling, Ma-Deuce wielding Obama in clown makeup. And in a tutu.
...With thigh-highs. Purple and black stripes should do it.
Here's my guess: Scrawny little ginger twink who has a history of conflict with other soldiers and superiors, in a SCIF in a completely different and unrelated operational theater and with absolutley no need to know.
Did I win?
“Who’s story will they tell....
I would tend to believe the Seal Team”
No, the whole point of the movie will be to protray Obama as a decisive, fearless leader who has single handidly won the WOT, in order to improve his election prospets.
Not worth the price of admission.....it’ll be pure fictional propaganda.......
What a coinkydink.
King, if you wanna go on a fishing expedition, find out when the project got the green light and who was talking to whom about what before as well as after.
