With Hollywood and the media pulling out all the stops to save their boy , including making a campaign movie about Obama’s bin Laden hit , should we really be caught unaware by the allegation that they gave access to the producers to sensitive intelligence info ?
“I know, I know … who would have ever guessed that a blockbuster film about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and was scheduled to open just before the election might have been used for political propaganda? Well … everyone did, including Maureen Dowd last August when the film’s schedule and subject matter came to light.”
They have been a party to releasing sensitive info that might have helped our efforts to destroy Islamic terrorism at least twice that I can immediately recall . First , with the raid on bin Laden , and again just weeks ago when they endangered the life of a British undercover asset in order to claim credit for uncovering the underwear bomber plot in Yemen .
“At a briefing in July 2011, Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Mike Vickers told filmmakers Michael Boal and Katherine Bigelow that the leaders of the the Special Operations Command couldn’t speak to them for appearances’ sake. However, Vickers said that the Pentagon would make available a Navy SEAL who was involved in planning the raid from its earliest stages.”
