Officials Helped Makers Of Osama Bin Laden Film, Documents Show

Kim Geiger at the Los Angeles Times reports on the story that politically-connected film makers working on a film about the Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden that may aid President Obama's reelection, received help from the Pentagon and the CIA.

In the months after the U.S. military mission that killed Osama bin Laden, Pentagon officials met with Hollywood filmmakers and gave them special access in an effort to influence the creation of a film about the operation, newly released documents show.

Emails and meeting transcripts obtained from the Pentagon and CIA through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch suggest that officials went out of their way to assist the filmmakers, while trying to keep their cooperation from becoming public.
