How’s this for timing? The Senate Intelligence Committee, which had injected itself into the Oscar race by deposing Kathryn Bigelow, screenwriter Mark Boal and others involved in the film in order to find out the source of their Killing Bin Laden info, decided that the film not winning the Oscar was all they had in mind to start with.
Which is what the filmmakers have been saying all along, a cheap publicity ploy with right wing implications.
Can’t have a film trumpeting an Obama accomplishment getting extra attention, or so the GOP lawmakers who harped on this seemed to believe.
They’ve shut down the investigation, wasting less time and money in the near future. Apparently.
I guess they’re counting on most Americans not remembering that “Argo” was a minor triumph of the (Democratic) Jimmy Carter administration.
