White House mum on Osama bin Laden film leaks

Pentagon investigators concluded that a senior Defense Department official who’s been mentioned as a possible candidate to be the next CIA director leaked restricted information to the makers of an acclaimed film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, and referred the case to the Justice Department, according to knowledgeable U.S. officials.

The White House declined Tuesday to address the matter, with Press Secretary Jay Carney saying he'd seen the news reports, but could "only refer you to the Pentagon. I don't have anything on it from here."
