Congressman wants probe of Bin Laden movie

August 11th, 2011 4:32 am by Staff Report

NPR is reporting that a House committee chairman wants an investigation of Obama administration cooperation with award-winning filmmakers on a movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. The White House says it did not give anyone special access.


Republican Peter King, who heads the Homeland Security Committee, says there has been too much talk already about the raid by Navy SEALS that killed bin Laden in Pakistan in May, and Pentagon officials have cautioned against discussing details of the mission.


King asked the inspectors general of the CIA and Defense Department to determine what consultations occurred in the Obama administration about providing Hollywood with access to covert military operators and clandestine CIA officers.


The picture will be directed by Kathryn Bigelow and the screenwriter will be Mark Boal, both 2009 Academy Award winners for The Hurt Locker.
