Seconds often make the difference between life and death and new technology makes the difference…
And then there is the several months-old issue of White House cooperation with filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal in a project involving the Navy SEALS operation that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden, which is now drawing renewed interest in this campaign season.
Here is what Times columnist Maureen Dowd, a fairly strong supporter of Mr. Obama, had to say about the story last August:
The White House is…counting on the Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal big-screen version of the killing of Bin Laden to counter Obama’s growing reputation as ineffectual…. The moviemakers are getting top-level access to the most classified mission in history from an administration that has tried to throw more people in jail for leaking classified information than the Bush administration.It was clear that the White House had outsourced the job of manning up the president’s image to Hollywood when Boal got welcomed to the upper echelons of the White House and the Pentagon and showed up recently – to the surprise of some military officers – at a CIA ceremony celebrating the hero SEALS.
Ms. Dowd noted that the movie is scheduled to open on October 12 – a little over three weeks before election day.
This president has a view of the powers of his office that is truly breathtaking.
