‘The Hurt Locker’ Screenwriter Suing US Government Following Bergdahl Subpoena | Film News
Orwellian is becoming increasingly common these days. The Oscar-winning screenwriter, Mark Boal, who wrote the screen plays for films like Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker is suing the US Government, as reported by Variety.
Boal is suing the Government following the latter demanding the full 25 hours of audio interviews he conducted with PoW, Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for five years and accused of deserting the US army. The screenwriter commented:
“I support the army, but this particular military prosecutor’s tactics contradict and undermine the stated principles and policies of the commander and chief and the attorney general to protect first amendment rights, it’s Orwellian and bizarre”.
