A Fox News alert shocking emails that reveal that classified information.
The White House provided to producers of a movie.
About the raid that killed Osama bin Laden has now been.
Coming out pretty much everywhere this morning got a brain knew our connections right now America's Newsroom glad Andy was everybody I'm -- and account.
I'm Bill Hemmer good morning at home one of them -- -- -- as well the emails are from top CIA Defense Department officials to Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow promising.
Access to sensitive military and intelligence details.
Your congressman Peter King chairman of the house homeland security committee joins me now good morning congressman didn't have a -- thank -- I what's the problem here let's hear about it.
As many problems one we find that you have Hollywood producers Kathryn Bigelow -- -- ball give an unprecedented access to the CIA.
It's access it was arranged by a democratic lobbying firm democratic consultant.
Global hawk actually brought them into me the CIA I've not aware -- ever happening before.
But there in the CIA they're taken to -- -- of Walt when most classified information is kept there were also taken to a secret site.
The site that is so secret that the name had to be redacted -- blacked out on the emails were made public.
And yet you have day Kathryn Bigelow and -- -- ball going in there even though they certainly don't have security clearances.
Yeah it is very surprising that that name of a place that they were -- can.
Even when the emails were released had to be blacked out so they start this trip to figure out I mean obviously it's clear that initiation is the Oscar winning a director of the Hurt Locker -- great movie a lot of attention the national want to make a movie about what's arguably one of the you know the most successful.
Of its kind in our country's history so I think that that all is understandable but the question is why.
They would get this kind of clearance and obviously they want to tell the story accurately and somebody -- it is very much in favor.
A given an -- taxes let's that a look at this quote that has to do with that this is from the transcript of the undersecretary Vickers his meeting with the filmmakers and in it.
He talks about providing a special operator to the filmmakers who would speak.
For operators and senior military commanders he says the only thing we ask is that you not reveal his name in any way as a consultant because again.
It's the same thing he shouldn't be talking out of school this at least that gives him one step removed and he knows what what he can.
And can't say what well how how do you -- read into that.
That is actually an offense so he'll have a high ranking assistant secretary of defense for intelligence.
Who was basically telling how are you produces how -- -- -- the system how they get information.
And due to waves as information on the -- military commanders did not wanna talk about.
Yet he was having a special operations.
A person give them this information -- -- one step removed so no one would know.
What was happening was this part of -- overall picture -- for instance the woman at the CIA who was arranging all of this.
For the Hollywood people and have leaving the CIA and is now working for the Obama campaign is almost incestuous type relationship the Hollywood the intelligence community.
And the defense community and it's indefensible I mean if a member of congress is not allowed access to some of these sites and if anyone else was doing it they've probably been charged -- he'll have.
Hollywood people report right into the inner sanctum and to areas where -- -- -- the most classified the most sensitive.
And that was I think I -- Korea.
-- Obama was courageous to do the right thing.
He's entitled have a movies -- title have history know what he did but there was no reason -- all white secret classified information to remain available -- up.
People like Catherine Bigelow marbled through border into this inside them this is something which is -- -- is far I've and so when people.
The last several -- the intelligence community is unprecedented.
And you have the -- think he's even a ball was saying this is dynamite.
You have Kevin Bigelow.
That you can't -- credible in you can't -- him of course they're filmmakers and and they wanna have access is pretty fair from everything you're saying that they.
You know somebody -- some very high levels made sure that the -- -- -- open to them.
And this is a look at technically -- a while and it and it indeed that's appropriate -- let I didn't want to show this statement by the Department of Defense because here's what they're saying.
In defense of this they're saying that -- the Department of Defense as well as other agencies and departments regularly engage with the entertainment industry.
To inform projects ranging from books documentaries to feature films many individuals in the industry.
Expressed interest in developing projects on what can only be described as one of the top intelligence.
And military successes.
A generation our engagement on these projects was driven by desire to informed the public.
Not by timing and you can imagine you can understand that they would want to make sure the stories very accurately told cracked.
Start to -- -- are giving every detail of intelligence when we just say on this for the Defense Department.
Bless you and I S investigation was ridiculed by the White House and by others in the administration since that.
They get the inspector general for the Pentagon is now conducting his own investigation.
And based on what he's learned what he's seen.
He is this is now -- -- -- inspector general investigation so clearly what I want on it is not appropriate otherwise you're not the inspector general.
Not just going to -- our investigation.
But a full investigation.
-- -- Peter King thank you thank you must activists wearing.
