We Should All Have “Top-Level Access” to The Bin Laden Assassination Video

You know for a fact that we live in a free country when an investigation is started because a congress critter thinks somebody received access to a government produced video:

A senior Republican has called for an inquiry into reports the White House fed secrets about the killing of Osama Bin Laden to Hollywood film-makers.


New York Times writer Maureen Dowd said film-makers had “top-level access”.

The White House called that report – and Mr King’s claims – “ridiculous”

There should have been an investigation started into why the video wasn’t released to the public in the first place. Remember when Obama promised that he would strive to create a more transparent government? I guess classified videos of America’s number one enemy being taken out counts as transparency. This line was also comedy gold:

The killing of the man behind the 9/11 terror attacks marked the recent high point in Mr Obama’s presidency.

When the high point of your presidential career is being in office when the military finally was successful in killing a wanted man you have some pretty major issues that need to be worked out.
