A long article in The New Yorker magazine, for example, quoted White House officials anonymously and by name.
The CIA opened its doors to a director and scriptwriter for their upcoming movie on bin Laden’s death, “Zero Dark Thirty.” The movie’s release date initially was scheduled before the election but was moved later to Jan. 11.
In August, the watchdog group Judicial Watch released a series of internal administration emails detailing the White House’s cooperation on “Zero Dark Thirty.” The group obtained the emails via the Freedom of Information Act.
“Told them we’re here to help with whatever they need,” a CIA public relations official said in an email after a meeting that included the movie director, the screenwriter and a senior spy.
“He also had a clear and unambiguous obligation not to disclose classified information, and he did,” Mr. Whitman added.
Mr. Bissonnette’s attorney denied that his client revealed classified information.
