Chairman King said: "I commend the Department of Defense Inspector General for taking so seriously the concerns I raised beginning last year about the Obama Administration's extremely close, unprecedented, and potentially dangerous collaboration with these Hollywood filmmakers working on this election-year film. I eagerly await the findings of the first phase of this investigation into potential exposure of Special Operations Forces personnel to filmmakers Kathyrn Bigelow and Mark Boal. I am hopeful that this "Phase II' investigation will address the broader issue of ongoing leaks of classified information by the White House which began only hours after our special operators successfully executed this covert mission."
