Osama bin Laden Movie

 

Chairman King has been a leading critic of the Obama Administration’s extremely close, unprecedented, and potentially dangerous collaboration with Hollywood filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal in the production of a movie on the mission in which U.S. Special Operations Forces killed Osama bin Laden.  Now entitled “Zero Dark Thirty,”  the film was originally set to be released in October, just a month before the November presidential election.
