Rep. Peter King is demanding answers about the CIA’s cooperation with a production team making a film on the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Politico reported.

New York’s Republican lawmaker is responding to a CIA court filing this week that said the agency recently discovered a "4 to 5 inch stack" of additional documents regarding the CIA’s cooperation with the filmmakers. The discovery comes two months after a deadline for the agency to produce all records about the cooperation. The request for the documents came via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch.

King, the House Homeland Security Committee Chairman, said he found the belated discovery troubling. “The Obama Administration’s extremely close, unprecedented, and potentially dangerous collaboration with these filmmakers is a serious matter that deserves serious scrutiny," he said, according to Politico. "I am very eager to know exactly what, if any, new information is contained in these undisclosed documents.”

Documents show that the Pentagon and the CIA cooperated with Zero Dark Thirty" filmmakers Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow, Politico reported, going as far as arranging special briefings and access despite pleas from some within the agencies that too much information about the killing of Bin Laden had been released.
