It's absolutely disgusting when President Barack Obama's college records are more classified than the most important military action in decades: the SEAL Team 6 raid that killed Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden. True to his liberal self, Obama and the White House provided classified information to Hollywood director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) for her upcoming movie. A new low has been reached in America.
Conservative group Judicial Watch, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), obtained 153 pages from the Department of Defense (DoD) and 113 pages from the CIA over the course of nine months. This entire situation is beyond revolting; the White House solely cares about re-electing Barack Obama as president and they are using any and all ammunition for propaganda, despite this being one of the most classified military operations in American history. When Obama's college records are more secretive than the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, something is royally screwed up.
From Entertainment Weekly:
A Department of Defense meeting transcript reveals that the filmmaker learned the identity of the SEAL Team 6 commander, but was asked never to name him as a consultant “because…he shouldn’t be talking out of school.” (The commander’s name is blacked out in Judicial Watch’s document.) According to an internal CIA email, Bigelow and Boal also gained access to “the Vault,” a CIA building where the bin Laden raid was partially planned.
Both the Pentagon and Judicial Watch investigations came in the wake of an August 2011 column by New York Times writer Maureen Dowd, in which Dowd accused President Obama’s administration of giving “top-level access to the most classified mission in history” despite having tried “to throw more people in jail for leaking classified information than the Bush administration.” During a press briefing that same month, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called Dowd’s claims “ridiculous”: “We do not discuss classified information. And I would hope that as we face a continued threat from terrorism, the House Committee on Homeland Security would have more important topics to discuss than a movie,” he continued.
Carney went on to explain that the Obama administration had only given Bigelow’s team information that “focused on the President’s role” in the bin Laden raid. “There is no difference in the information that we’ve given to anybody who is working on this topic from what we gave to those of you in this room who worked on it in the days and weeks after the raid itself,” he said.
Nothing is off limits if it helps President Barack Obama distract from his awful record. It's just too bad that he's willing to put America's national security at risk for his narcissistic self.
