At first glance it seems to be a frivolous subject, involving frivolous Hollywood stars but that fact is what happened in Hungary this week, in the movie set of the next Brad Pitt's blockbuster "World War Z" has a strange timing with the so called "Fast and Furious" scandal in the US government.
A Budapest SWAT team stormed into the filming set and seized several fully-functional-internationally-non-authorized military weapons stored in a warehouse by the movie's production, which entered them in the country without approval from Hungary’s Anti-Terrorism Unit:

Brad Pitt isn't a terrorist -- but he's certainly being treated like one.

On Monday, a SWAT team raided a Budapest warehouse holding weapons being used in Pitt's upcoming zombie movie World War Z. "The film is already over budget and over schedule," a source tells Us Weekly. "Brad is furious."
Police seized 85 fully-functional weapons, most of which were automatic, military-style assault rifles. "We can confirm that weapons were confiscated at an airport," Hajdu Janos and Zsolt Bodnar, the director and deputy director of Hungary's Anti-Terrorism Unit, tell Us.
The problem, a source says, is that the guns came with paperwork claiming they were non-functional -- but they're actually in working order.
"This morning a private plane brought guns wrapped in a parcel from a company to an individual [in Budapest]," Janos and Bodnar add. "Guns like these are highly illegal to transport even if they were to used as stage guns, which hopefully they weren't."
According to a source, Pitt, 47, isn't to blame for the prop problem. "The movie company's employees must have made a mistake bringing the guns in without the Anti-Terrorism Unit's permission."
Janos adds: "We are interrogating witnesses now, getting closer to solving the firearms story."
Pitt's company, Plan B Entertainment, is producing World War Z. It is scheduled for a December 2012 release.

How come Brad Pitt, who's also producing the movie besides starring it, smuggles almost 100 hundred fully-functional automatic military weapons into a country which is a very well corridor of European weapons trafficking?? And why the movie's production did decide to use REAL weapons, instead of prop guns, while filming in this very same country??

Is that possible that Pitt, who's married to Angelina Jolie, who's UN and CFR, just had no clue about requiring authorization of the Hungary's government, for entering the weapons in that country???

The timing of this event with the "Fast and Furious" weapon smuggling scandal in the US government is just astonishing. The article of US Weekly says that "Pitt is no terrorist, but is being treated like one", but I ask: How the US government would treat a Hungary's actor if he smuggled 85 Russian military weapons into American soil???

So what?? Was this serious incident in Hungary just a "communication breakdown" or is Pitt a mule for US overseas black ops???

A mule for black ops?

Thread already...

Also - you often double post entire threads and posts... I think you may need a new mouse or something?

(or you are just a bit trigger happy)

i would call bringing in 100 fully automatic rifles a fail, if pitt was being a mule for anybody. im sure they could have found a better way to bring in these weapons, and a lot more than a 100

I know it looks like it on paper (or in print) but a Producer of a major motion picture does not concern himself with menial tasks such has acquiring and transporting props and set-design. That's why there's billions of other names in a movie-credits.
