    It's apparently about the ops mission to get OBL. Comes out in December and the preview looked interesting.

    Is this the movie that caused the uproar about Obama granting access to film producers when he said he wouldn't spike the football?

    Based on what I saw this may be hard for the left to swallow. It had audio that clearly indicated that some type of enhanced interrogation (torture) as part of the story.

    Obama can do no wrong as long as you put "it's Bush's fault" in front of it.

    True but they've denied that it played a roll at all.

    You're breaking my heart here Grampa :eusa_angel: I had a huge thread on Obama and the administration getting busted on this issue with the release of the emails.

    How did you miss it?

    :D

    Here's a good link to actually read the emails. The ones from the CIA being enthralled at getting free premiere tickets blew me away.

    We’re so excited': Secret emails reveal how Obama backed bin Laden film to help win reelection

    Oscar winners Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal got access to classified information to help make 'Zero Dark Thirty'
    White House reminded filmmakers it wanted to 'have visibility' in the film so it could bask in the glory of bin Laden's death
    Film was originally set to premier before the election, though Sony pushed back release date amid controversy


    Zero Dark Thirty: Secret emails reveal how Obama backed bin Laden film to help win reelection | Mail Online

    Here's the email that flipped me.

    n one email a senior CIA official boasted: 'I can’t tell you how excited we all are about the project' -- and apparently vows to keep quiet about free tickets to the premiere.

    The White House got in on the act as well, making it explicit it wanted to 'have visibility' so it could bask in the glory.
