For a short time, America basked in the news that Osama Bin Laden was dead—at least until we found out Obama would exploit it to the hilt for his reelection campaign. At least until he took full credit for it, minimizing the work of the CIA agents, communications specialists, Black Hawk pilots, and even the SEALs themselves who took Bin Laden out.
Within days, Team Obama began to leak top secret information about the raid to the press. Within days, Kathryn Bigelow, the director of The Hurt Locker, was briefed by the CIA and given access to top secret information, even being allowed access to what is called “The Vault”, where the operation was planned.
Obama had a new operation to plan. One more important than taking out Osama Bin Laden: A blockbuster movie produced by election time that extolled his ability as Commander-in-Chief. That state secrets were being revealed to people who couldn’t pass a urine test, let alone a security clearance, didn’t seem to matter to him.
