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. Obamas role and provide a window into decision-making in the White House.

Doesn’t this insult Muslims?
Isn’t it likely to spark ME violence?
stopped reading right there.
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.
"...he couldn't lead a Kindergarten assault on a bag of M&M's
Doesnt this insult Muslims?
Isnt it likely to spark ME violence?
Of course not. obama has assured us that muslims love America and Americans.
Is there a giant “Mission Accomplished” banner behind our big-eared Marxist president?
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.
Time for Hussein to send another sacrificial lamb ambassador over there to be murdered for the greater good of his regime.
Obama likes to claim credit for getting Osama. Why hasn’t he tried Khalid Sheikh Mohammed yet?
I’m back in the U.S.S.R.
You don’t know how lucky you are boy
Back in the U.S.
Back in the U.S.
Back in the U.S.S.R.
On Horse back waving a bayonet ?
Is Valerie Jarrett mentioned?
The FEC should declare this a campaign ad, and force the production company and the network to register as a PAC.
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.
“As a leader, his men would follow him anywhere. But only out of morbid curiosity.”
I’ve read it and also Seal Team Six by Wasdin.
Seal Team Six is (by far) the better book.
thanks, I’ll see if it’s available for Kindle.
So glad I served when I did and don’t have to salute him (O) now...
On Horse back waving a bayonet ?
On horse back maybe, but he said bayonets are obsolete.
Thanks, will have to check it out.
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.
Me too...saluting Carter was bad enough...yes, I’m that old.
'Barack' Hero of Benghazi
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?”
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 wouldnt 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.
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.
In order to engage in hand to hand he would need a bayonette...
