White House On 'Zero Dark Thirty' Leaks: Ask The Pentagon

Q Jay, can you comment at all on the Pentagon? Investigators have concluded that a senior defense official has leaked restricted information to the makers of the bin Laden film. Rep. Peter King (R-NY)’s office is out and says they’re quite troubled by it.

MR. CARNEY: I have seen those reports, but I can only refer you to the Pentagon. I don’t have anything on it from here.

Q But the fact that it went beyond and into a criminal investigation seems to suggest that it’s a little bit worse than you had led us to believe. I think King’s office said that it’s an indication that our security was placed at risk by people who wanted to help Hollywood make a movie.

MR. CARNEY: Well, first of all, I think that that’s not — your memory of the discussions that we had from here had to do with charges by that Congressman and others about White House — what the White House’s role in informing people who are doing stories on or other things on the bin Laden raid was. Again, on this particular matter, I would refer you to the Pentagon. I just don’t have anything for you on it.
