Film-makers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal had a secret meeting with a military boss involved in the assassination of Osama Bin Laden while researching their upcoming movie about the operation.
Director Bigelow and writer Boal were given access to a "planner, Operator and Commander of (Navy) Seal Team Six" while working on the script for Zero Dark Thirty, according to documents obtained by the Judicial Watch website.
The papers reveal the meeting, in July last year (11), was arranged via officials at the Cia and Department of Defense.
It is believed Bigelow and Boal discussed details of the raid on bin Laden's bolthole in Abbottabad, Pakistan by Navy Seals in May last year (11), during which the terror chief was shot dead.
