Congressional Republicans on Wednesday intensified their scrutiny of the Obama Administration’s cooperation with filmmakers producing a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Newly released government documents revealed the Administration’s naming of a Navy SEAL commander who helped plan the raid on Bin Laden’s Compound, and now House Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has written to Michael Vickers, the Pentagon official who spoke with filmmakers Katherine Bigelow and Mark Boal, questioning whether Vickers released “classified and sensitive information to individuals without appropriate security clearances.”

Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., has asked the Defense Department’s inspector general to further examine the meetings between Pentagon officials and the filmmakers.

Administration officials have denied any impropriety, explaining that no security violation occurred because the SEAL planner’s name was provided “for planning purposes,” not for publication.

The White House has portrayed its cooperation with the filmmakers as a balancing act, sating public interest in the bin Laden raid without maligning America’s national security interests.
