CIA Considers Bin Laden Film’s Political Release Date a ‘Breach of Faith’

Allbiz - PWCM - JLA 2011/08/11 23:20:38

Not much new here to report but make sure to hang in until the end
when Rep. Peter King reveals that members of the intelligence community
and the CIA, who agreed to participate with the making of Kathryn
Bigelow’s upcoming bin Laden film, were blindsided when they learned
that that the release date was just a few weeks prior to the 2012
presidential election — an obvious betrayal of their trust and
goodwill.


And why wouldn’t they feel betrayed? My guess is that most were eager
to see this story told and to see their years of sacrifice and hard
work given a positive bigscreen portrayal for a change. So there’s
little doubt it must have felt like a slap across the face once they
learned they had been conned into contributing to a “Barack Obama 2012″
campaign commercial.


If you think about it, this is really a two-track story. On one track
you have the issue of the White House possibly giving classified
information to friendly filmmakers prepared to create that $75 million
campaign commercial — something that obviously needs to be
investigated. And on the other track you have Sony’s unforgivable
decision to use the heroism and sacrifice of our military
and intelligence personnel to boost a failed president’s re-election
chances.


The word “disgraceful” really doesn’t do this situation justice.



Bottom line: Sony’s release date is a purely partisan move that puts a
political stink over the film and does a disservice to our country and
those who risk so much to keep her safe.


Shame on them all.


And how stupid? Did Sony really think they could get away with this?
That it wouldn’t make them look terrible, blow any chance at creating
audience goodwill around the project, and backfire horribly on Obama’s
White House?


Arrogance does breed stupidity.

You!

    Well, I consider it Treasonous. But you have to look at who is running the CIA now, He is not going to buck his buddy Obama. And Obama could care less. He is kowtowing to Hollywood-less. How much more stuff is going to be released by the Fake in Chief. He can't even release his own personal information, that became public property when he was elected and sworn in.

    The whole obaaaama regime is a breach of oath of office. The film will be more obaaaama propaganda intended to help him win an election.

    I sincerely hope this president continues to gather the sort of notoriety through the election that he is now receiving.

    At what level do we stop accepting what tripe is produced by the White House mouthpiece and start demanding investigations?
