WASHINGTON - Movie-makers producing a film
about the US special forces raid that killed Osama bin Laden
are getting help from the Pentagon, but the Obama
administration dismissed concerns on Wednesday that classified
information has been divulged.
The film, focusing on one of President Barack Obama's key
successes in office, is due to be released in October 2012,
less than a month before the election in which the Democrat is
seeking a second term.
"The claims are ridiculous," White House spokesman Jay
Carney told a White House briefing.
"We do not discuss classified information. And I would hope
that as we face the continued threat from terrorism, the House
Committee on Homeland Security would have more important topics
to discuss than a movie," Carney added.
