Apparently the new Obama Doctrine on Top Secret information is that it’s not permissible to leak classified details to a company making video games about soldiers…
Seven members of a unit that killed Osama bin Laden got career-ending reprimands Thursday for spilling secrets to a video game developer, a Navy official said. The members of the elite SEAL Team 6 were charged with dereliction of duty for disclosure of classified materials and unauthorized use of unit equipment for two days of off-the-clock work earlier this year. The SEALS were helping the firm EA with its new first-person shooter “Medal of Honor: Warfighter,” which came out last month.
…but it’s perfectly permissible to leak national security secrets to filmmakers designed to support your re-election campaign.
…newly released documents confirm his suspicions that the CIA and the Defense Department jeopardized national security by cooperating too closely with filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal in producing a movie on the raid that led to the death of the terrorist leader.
Tom Fitton is president of Judicial Watch, the organization that obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
“The original investigation was tied to a Maureen Dowd column in The New York Times who said that the classified information was conveyed to help with the film designed to help boost Obama’s re-election chances,” Fitton explains.
