Rep. King Calls for Federal Probe of bin Laden Film

Partisan politics are swirling around a new movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden. 
    
The film is set to open in theaters just weeks before next year's presidential election.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is concerned the movie will compromise national security, saying too much information has already leaked out about the raid that killed the 9/11 mastermind.

King said he's worried the Obama administration will give out even more sensitive details to the filmmakers. 
    
But the White House insisted the film's producers will receive only information available to the public.

"When people are working on articles, books, documentaries or movies that involve the president, ask to speak to administration officials, we do our best to accommodate them to make sure that facts are correct. That is hardly a novel approach to the media," White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters.
    
"We do not discuss classified information," he added. "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."

Meanwhile, King has called for the CIA and Pentagon inspectors general to investigate the matter.
