Peter King, America’s most successful attention-whoring congressman, is upset about the prospect that the Defense Department and the Central Intelligence Agency, in the course of briefing Kathryn Bigelow on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden for her upcoming movie about just that, may have revealed classified information. This is, of course, a deeply goofy concern. The Defense Department and intelligence agencies have a reputation for being extremely available to Hollywood, and presumably know how to brief filmmakers without damaging the national interest.
More to the point, if Hollywood was ever going to try to get something right, the assassination of the architect of the most devastating one-off attack on American soil and goader of America into two wars would be it. And Kathryn Bigelow, who has made movies about servicemen before, presumably has some interest in national security and the safety of the men and women who provide it for us. If King wants to get upset about a Navy SEALs movie, he might do better to focus on Act of Valor, in which the team had much greater access to actual SEAL teams who are themselves acting in the movie, and which is based on actual SEAL operations. The details of the bin Laden raid were always going to be public, but showcasing the details of other operations seems more likely to compromise security than presenting accurately a story that would have been revealed anyway.
