WASHINGTON (AP) -- A draft report by Pentagon investigators says that several weeks after Leon Panetta oversaw the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the then-CIA director violated security rules by revealing the name of the raid commander in the presence of a Hollywood screenwriter.

Panetta later served as defense secretary and is now retired.

The unpublished report was first disclosed by the Project on Government Oversight and was confirmed Wednesday by Rep. Peter King, who requested the investigation.

The Republican says he has been briefed on the draft report. He says it confirmed his suspicion that the Obama administration cut corners on security in its dealings with Hollywood executives eager to produce a film about the raid.

A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, says the Defense Department had no comment.
