Yes, folks, the President has decided to go from getting his ass kicked to kicking some ass. The same Sony Pictures duo responsible for giving us the dismal cinematic failure called THE HURT LOCKER, Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, have been commissioned to portray our Commander-In-Chief as the steely-eyed leader that he is not.
"The Mission To Get Bin Laden" is based upon a recent New Yorker article by Nicholas Schmidle, which is remarkably detailed in it's reconstruction, to include both verbal and non-verbal cues. When questioned in an online chat forum about the detail of his piece, he initially indicated that "the SEALs weren't the only ones listening in on the radio communications", and later admitted that he hadn't actually spoken to ANY of them when writing the piece. It is all based upon "other recollections"...i.e., the White House script.
Maureen Dowd states that "The White House had outsourced the job of manning up the president's image to Hollywood when [Mark] Boal got welcomed to the upper echelons of the White House and the Pentagon and showed up recently — to the surprise of some military officers — at a CIA ceremony celebrating the hero SEALs."
Speculation mounts, after recent sightings of Matt Damon sporting a fresh buzzcut, that he is slated to portray the President. (sarcasm mine)
