Obama Is Prominent in ‘SEAL Team Six,’ Weinstein Film

LOS ANGELES — Thanks to the magic of editing, President Obama will have a starring role in a television drama about one of his biggest accomplishments — the killing of Osama bin Laden — that will be shown just two nights before the presidential election.

But promotional materials and a copy of the movie provided to The New York Times this week also show that the film has been recut, using news and documentary footage to strengthen Mr. Obama’s role and provide a window into decision-making in the White House.

"The real Obama."

This is why he is shown in the famous OBL sit room meeting wearing a windbreaker: it's to hide his golf shirt. He had to be dragged in from the golf course to sit in the posed photo of the OBL raid sit room gathering.

This film is a complete fabrication of history. They apparently even had a scene of Romney opposing the raid but cut it out.

And if the Middle East explodes?? He's giving them plenty of advance warning...We know Mr. Obama....It'll be President Romney's problem...

Now let's be real....November 4th is a Sunday...He's going to cancel it at the last minute.....at a podium on the White House Lawn....and then go hide in the caverns....just in case it still explodes.

Hey America! Barry didn’t have anything to do with the death of bin Laden. Not one damn thing. Don’t buy Hollywood’s garbage. Read “No Easy Day” instead. The SEALs were there so they should know. Barry was sitting on his ass in Washington, D.C. watching the feed coming in from a drone. (Or at least that’s what we’ve been told). Barry wasn’t there.

The FEC should declare this a campaign ad, and force the production company and the network to register as a PAC.

The real news here is the fact that it is in the NY Times and they are saying it is edited fake BS.

Also, if you can believe it, News Weak has Obama on the cover with an article titled...

“Hit the road Barack” why America needs a new President.

Obama is SO two thousand and eight...

Bet the SEALs are totally disgusted with him and are counting the seconds until he is out of office. He uses the military only at his convenience (much like Clinton) yet tries to diminish and destroy them (much like Carter) while he would like to fool Americans into thinking he is the hero riding in to take down OBL. Bush’s administration set all that up and Bush deserves more credit for it than Obama ever should. Obama is NOT Lincoln, he is NOT Reagan, he is NOT our savior.

Please Lord, let Romney/Ryan win and bless this country once again!

This should be deemed an “in kind” contribution to the presidential reelection bit. Assuming it would ever get made, if this was about a Republican president, the Dems would be howling over it being so close to election day.

I've never understood why Osama got so much attention while KSM is basically ignored. KSM is THE GUY responsible for 9/11. Osama was just his backer; the George Soros of the operation.

If you haven’t already, take a read of “No Easy Day”....a SEAL’s account of what really happened. They don’t like Obama and certainly knew he would take the credit.

I’ve read it and also Seal Team Six by Wasdin.

Seal Team Six is (by far) the better book.

The Hollywood Yarmulke mafia strikes up the band again as usual right on cue.

This time it will likely not help.

Mr Weinstein....or is Noreiga in drag?

You despise traditional America and are a traitor to your blood kin in Israel.

I detest you.

Even though Leon Panetta (then head of the CIA) made the final "GO" decision while obama dithered? Bet the movie doesn't show that.

Hollywood’s movie fantasy during the Bush administration-W gets assassinated.

Hollywood’s movie fantasy during Obozo’s administration-Obozo (backed by a few SEALs) takes out bin Laden with his bare hands.

I wasn’t planning on watching it even before I knew this, but I wonder if they are going to show the part where he’s called off the golf course. I would love to know how he reacted when he was told he had to go home. Bet he laid down on the ground, kicked and screamed: “Can’t I just play a lousy game of golf?”

It's so the Left could float the talking point that Bush "failed to get Bin Laden" (although it was in the works for years and is reputed to have occurred because of information obtained at Gitmo). Barack has failed to prosecute Islamic terrorists at home and captured abroad. He has repeatedly denied the domestic attacks that happened on his watch were "legitimate rape terrorism". terrorism

We were assured repeatedly that Osama Bin Laden and his terrorist followers are not ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, that they do not follow REAL Islam. Of course, the lying pro-Islamist Marxist in the White Hut then proceeded to give him a taxpayer funded Islamic funeral rite followed by a burial at sea. Wouldn’t want to p!ss of the Islamists by not treating Osama Bin Laden as a GOOD muslim.

And Howard T. Owens, the chief executive of the National Geographic Channel, who joined the call, said his company had insisted on removing a scene that showed Mitt Romney appearing to oppose the raid. “We wouldn’t air this if it were propaganda,” he said.

Mr. Owens lies. It's just that they would be hesitant to air this in the eve on the presidential election if it was naked propaganda. Even he couldn't swallow ALL of the BULLSTAIN.

Mr. Weinstein added that he had supported Republican candidates like George E. Pataki, the former New York governor, and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York.

Bloomberg is another Rat in RINO clothing. Easier to assure a Democrat sits in the mayor's chair if they run candidates in both parties.
