(Newser) – The Defense Department is investigating claims that the White House gave classified information about the Osama bin Laden raid ... to Hollywood. GOP Rep. Peter King sought the investigation following allegations that the administration provided Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow with privileged information for her upcoming film on the raid, reports CNN. (It's due out in December 2012.) King charges that the White House gave Bigelow access because it expects a glowing portrayal of its actions on film.

like we need to uplift Osama or Obama for anything in a movie! get real! its all kind of strange to tell you the truth, Like they just simply walked in where O.B.L. was with no problem and shot him,no hassle,easy in and easy out,Does not make sense,he would have been heavily guarded any where he was.Believe what you want.I just do not believe Obama about hardly anything,he has been caught in lies to Americans over 50 times.I would not be surprised if Obama was not protecting not only O.B.L.but the rest of them we think are dead also.Because no matter how much democrats are for Obama or even some Republicans -Obama is really not for either.because he is not for America.And that is just the way it is.

the pentagon... that can't even defend itself against a commercial jet (or even take a picture) doing a broad 360' turn before "allegedly" slamming in to it 5 feet off the ground... no leaks here.

Sour grapes from the repukes because Bushco didn't manage to "Git R Done" in eight years.
