National Geographic Getting Terror Threats From Keyboard Jihadis Over Bin Laden Film
The National Geographic Channel's Washington, DC headquarters has increased security after being inundated with terror threats over the upcoming release of the film Seal Team Six: The Raid on the late Osama bin Laden
... who went titzup one dark and stormy night...
, according to a source.

The full-length feature film is the first dramatization of the U.S. special forces operation that killed the criminal mastermind of the September 11 attacks in Pakistain last May.

According to a New York Post source, the channel has been bombarded with phone calls and blogs posts from 'Moslem hard boy groups' warning that anyone airing a film like this is asking for trouble.

'Enough threats have come in that the network is on higher security alert,' the source said. 'They have a huge public building with a museum and 1,600 people working.'

The movie, which focuses on one of President B.O.'s most successful moments in office, will premiere just two days before the November 6 election, drawing fire from critics on the right who have accused National Geographic of being partisan.
Given the publicity effort that's taken place in the run-up to the election, including accusations of partisanship for the timing, the exact release date is moot -- the effect of tying President Obama firmly to the killing of Mr. bin Laden in voters' minds has been achieved.
A spokesperson for National Geographic told the Post that the channel will air the film 'no matter what,' adding, 'we are big believers in the First Amendment.'

The movie will be available on Netflix streaming 24 hours after its TV premiere.
