    Security breach alleged in making of bin Laden raid film

    Homeland Security chair concerned over Kathryn Bigelow film

    A House committee chairman charged Wednesday in Washington that the CIA and Defence Department jeopardized national security by co-operating too closely with filmmakers producing a movie on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

    Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King. R-N.Y., first raised questions about the bin Laden movie last summer, but said newly released documents confirm his suspicions.

    The filmmakers are director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, who won Academy Awards for the motion picture The Hurt Locker.

    King referred to documents obtained by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act request. He said the filmmakers received "extremely close, unprecedented and potentially dangerous collaboration" from the Obama administration.

    Judicial Watch said the documents show that the Defence Department granted Bigelow and Boal access to a "planner, operator and commander of SEAL Team 6" — the unit that killed bin Laden in Pakistan.

    'The CIA has been open about our engagement with writers, documentary filmmakers, movie and TV producers, and others in the entertainment industry. Our goal is an accurate portrayal of the men and women of the CIA, their vital mission and the commitment to public service that defines them'
    —CIA spokesman Preston Golson

    I bet it will be because I think that is why the movie was made. It's been in the planning for a year now. There was a report that a director was allowed in the situation room when things were going down. Maybe he's the one who snapped the photo op of Obama and company pretending to be watching video.

    I think the decision to start making a movie before the fish had even digested the remains is tacky and self-serving. We weren't given a lot of details about the mission and there was a different version of events every day for the first week. I am anxious to see which story they finally settled on for the movie.
