Luckily for Barack Obama, the corrupt media is too busy attempting to rescue the President from his “you didn’t build that” comments to report on things like our faltering economy or the nearly half-foot of documents the CIA whoops-there’d under a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Judicial Watch:
The Central Intelligence Agency recently discovered a “4 to 5 inch stack” of documents that relate to the spy agency’s cooperation with the makers of a forthcoming Hollywood film on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, according to a new court filing.
The documents about CIA dealings with the film now titled “Zero Dark Thirty” were “inadvertently overlooked” in response to a Freedom of Information Act request and lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Justice Department attorneys said in a motion filed in federal court in Washington Tuesday afternoon (posted here).
“The CIA discovered a 4 to 5 inch stack of records potentially responsive to plaintiff’s FOIA request that had been inadvertently overlooked during the CIA’s search,” Civil Division attorney Marcia Berman wrote. “The CIA is continuing to look into the circumstances of the discovery of the new documents to ensure the adequacy of its search.”
A CIA spokesman said the agency does not comment on matters in litigation.
This White House’s habit of leaking information to its sympathetic Media Palace Guards and Hollywood suckups in order to make Obama look like some kind of super hero makes the Valerie Plame case look like a nothingburger.
Oh wait, the Plame case already was a nothingburger … spun into a mega-scandal by a media that once upon a time cared about such things. And by “once upon a time,” I mean of course when a Republican is president.
