Bin Laden raid movie criticised as pro-Obama

Action film about killing of Osama bin Laden draws scorn for pre-election timing and alleged bias.

    A film that dramatises the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s hideaway by US forces in Pakistan is being criticised for alleged political bias at a sensitive time.

    The film is jointly produced by the National Geographic channel and Hollywood veteran, Harvey Weinstein, an outspoken supporter of President Barack Obama.

    Those involved in the film insist there is nothing political about its content or timing.
