Report: Obama aides gave classified information on bin Laden raid for film

Speechless. Obama would sell his mother for political gain.
(MSNBC) Judicial Watch has released hundreds of Defense Department and CIA communications that reveal the Obama administration leaked classified information to filmmakers on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Judicial Watch claims the secrets were provided for a film on the bin Laden raid that was first scheduled to be released Oct. 12, just in time to boost the president's image shortly before the November elections. Sony Pictures has since pushed the release back to December.

According to the documents, the filmmakers were granted access to a Navy SEAL captain who was the "planner, operator and commander of SEAL Team Six," which killed bin Laden. In one memo one of the filmmakers says he had a "good meeting with Brennan and McDonough" and says "they were forward leaning, sharing their point of view on command and control."

More details here.

Will this be followed up by the justice department? Will people be charged with crimes? After all, the leak of one inactive CIA officer's name during the Bush years resulted in a huge investigation, indictment, and a trial.

The answer is, of course, no.

There must be a Congressional investigation, and those guilty must face charges.
