Obama’s re-election comes first, and if Loose Lips Sink Ships? So what!
New Yorkers celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden when the terrorist mastermind behind 9/11 was killed in an operation led by the United States last May.
But now, investigators are probing whether the Obama administration divulged too many details of the secret raid on to Hollywood filmmakers.
Rep. Peter King, who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, has questioned how much information was shared about the U.S. special operations mission in Pakistan that killed the al-Qaeda leader.
King has expressed worries about the administration’s cooperation with Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and Kathryn Bigelow, director of the Oscar-winning picture “The Hurt Locker,” who is working on a movie about the hunt for bin Laden.
In August King wrote the inspectors general of the Pentagon and CIA noting a New York Times column saying that Sony and Bigelow had been given “top-level access to the most classified mission in history.”
In his letter, King said that leaks of classified information related to the bin Laden raid had already resulted in the arrests of Pakistanis believed by Pakistan authorities to have assisted the CIA.
Dead Pakistanis can’t vote (well, except in Chicago..) so who cares, right?
