    Well now the emails are out to support what we've always known. The question is how in danger are any servicemen or women because of all the "assistance" that was given to the film makers?

    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

    The revelation is likely to further anger the Navy SEALs who carried out the raid, some of whom are already furious with Obama for trying to claim too much credit for the assassination of the al-Qaeda leader.

    In 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.
