It is very sad the lengths to which Barack Obama will go to get reelected. You may remember that Hollywood is making a movie about the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden. Originally planned to come out before the election to help in the re-election “battle” the film has since been moved till after the election (12/19).
In the interim, the White House staff did everything they could to help Director Kathryn Bigelow make her I Love Obama propaganda film. Judicial watch has obtained the correspondence between the White House and the filmmakers which shows that this administration may have gone too far in revealing information about the mission…but hey it’s all for a good cause, perpetuating their employment.
According to the records, the Obama Defense Department granted Bigelow and Boal access to a “planner, Operator and Commander of SEAL Team Six,” which was responsible for the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, to assist Bigelow prepare her upcoming feature film.
Understand that when the White House leaked out that Seal Team Six was involved, the heroes on the mission were worried that their families were put in danger, but releasing actual names to filmmakers without security clearance shows the President’s true priorities.
A transcript of a July 14, 2011, meeting between DOD officials, including Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael Vickers, Bigelow and Boal indicates that Boal met directly with White House officials on at least two occasions regarding the film: “I took your guidance and spoke to the WH and had a good meeting with Brennan and McDonough and I plan to follow up with them; and they were forward leaning and interested in sharing their point of view; command and control; so that was great, thank you,” Boal said according to the transcript. Vickers asks if the meeting was a follow-up, to which Boal responds, “Yes correct; this was a follow-up.” The documents seemingly reference John O. Brennan, Chief Counterterrorism Advisor to President Obama and Denis McDonough, who serves as President Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor.
The July 14, 2011, meeting transcript also reveals that the DOD provided the filmmakers with the identity of a “planner, SEAL Team 6 Operator and Commander.” (The name is blacked out in the document.) In proposing the arrangement, Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence Michael Vickers said: “The only thing we ask is that you not reveal his name in any way as a consultant because . . . he shouldn’t be talking out of school.” Vickers went on to say during the meeting at the Pentagon: “This at least, this gives him one step removed and he knows what he can and can’t say, but this way at least he can be as open as he can with you and it ought to meet your needs.” Boal later responds, “You delivered.”
They delivered much more than they should have. It is sad that our military has a commander-in-chief with such a callous disregard for the safety of his men.
