CIA Sells Out SEALs to Hollywood?!
The CIA has reportedly compromised vital U.S. Navy SEAL (Sea, Air, Land) OPSEC (Operational Security) by releasing highly sensitive classified data which could easily jeopardize the SEAL’s ability to conduct future missions in a safe and efficient manner. This monumental CIA security breach of SEAL security allegedly exposes the nitty gritty of SEAL mission planning, timelines, procedures, location of training on the Bin Laden compound mock-up and more–all so the highly regarded Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”) can make the film “Kill Bin Laden” for Sony Entertainment Pictures, release date October 2012. The film’s evidently designed (see below) to help get Obama re-elected via association with the heroes of the strike he himself nearly ruined. The SEALS discovered this CIA perfidy when various SEAL Team members started getting fact checking calls and found themselves trying to discredit, on the fly, the potentially lethal-to-them information provided by the CIA, as stated by the callers. This awful CIA deed makes the outing of Valerie Plame seem tame. Why? What the CIA has done puts not just the Teams at risk but those who carry them into missions as well, now and into the future!
CIA Unauthorized SEAL Information Disclosure Triggers Full-Blown Government Investigation!
Maureen Dowd’s Op-Ed column got the ball rolling, revealing CIA involvement in giving away the “crown jewels” of that and operations to come to Kathryn Bigelow, to include meeting the Jedis of SEAL Team Six’s now-dead Red Team at CIA headquarters, a grotesque violation of SEAL OPSEC. Ms. Dowd’s bombshell didn’t go unchallenged, for Representative Peter King (R), Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, contacted both the CIA and the Pentagon in August 2011 and later received a positive response. Ms. Bigelow is now under investigation for possibly receiving classified information. Additionally, Government watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Pentagon and CIA, for failing to answer FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) requests designed to reveal what was supposedly said and given in meetings by those agencies with “Kill Bin Laden” director Kathryn Bigelow, writer Mark Boal and employees of Annapurna Pictures.
CIA Betrayal Leaves The SEAL Teams Beyond Furious
Regardless of what does or doesn’t happen to Kathryn Bigelow as she’s investigated, the real culprit here is the CIA, and those CIA officials responsible knew full well the consequences of the release of such devastating information to SEAL OPSEC and future operations. In doing so, the CIA has also shot itself in the foot, drying up a prime source of “operators” for its own clandestine missions. That, though, is the least of its worries, for the Teams are way past furious, rightfully so.
