'Zero Dark Thirty' is Obama's propaganda tool
Though makers of ' the upcoming movie Zero Dark Thirty' refute it but to many people, especially Republicans, the release of the movie, which reportedly glorifies Obama administration for killing Osama Bin Laden, around the election time, looks like a well-planned move.

THE GRIM look of the trailer of 'Zero Dark Thirty' with a black paint line washing over every word spells that the film is about modern day problems. However, when an American accent in the promotional trailer says, 'when was the last time you saw Bin Laden' then a somewhat intriguing emotion come into play.

The movie with that sentence seals the deal that it is about the operation that trapped Osama Bin Laden and supposedly captured him. To be released in December, this trailer has garnered the interest of not only the common people but also the politicians in the US.

As was reported by The Telegraph, the Republicans are not happy with the timing of the promotion and are accusing the White House of giving access to Hollywood about classified information so that it boosts Barack Obama's chances in the upcoming presidential elections. Directed by the Oscar winner Kathyrn Bigelow of the Hurt Locker fame, the film focuses on the help of the Pentagon and the CIA to nab the culprit of 9/11 and is being called a propaganda tool of the White House.

In spite of what the Republicans might think and feel while looking at the trailer, it is categorically stated by the people associated with the project that it is not a political film at its core and that Obama would not feature in the film. In another bid to show that the film is not made to support Obama in his presidential elections in coming November, Sony has also decided to push back the release date from October to December. Co-writer of the script Mark Boal said, “There’s no political agenda in the film. A lot of people are going to be surprised when they see the film.” However the Obama administration did allow Bigelow to meet some of the military personnel who witnessed the happenings first hand.

Going from the Hurt Locker experience we can be assured of a very strong cinematic film. The trailer in itself has sparked interest with its unique representation of the data and facts like black line connects the World Trade Centre to a mass manhunt. Flashes of men in military outfits with guns in busy markets, personnel sitting thoughtful all comes together to form a beautiful montage.
