    Navy SEAL on Bin Laden Raid Speaks Out

    From time to time, the government releasedifferent edition of story. Should they have a report after each mission? Orthey have no ability to describe an event?

    Navy SEAL on BinLaden Raid Speaks Out
    By LEE FERRAN and LUIS MARTINEZ | ABC News Wed,Aug 29, 2012.

    The reported account appears to differ fromearlier versions of the raid given by U.S. officials, including that of WhiteHouse spokesperson Jay Carney, that the SEALs had entered the room before binLaden was shot, that one of bin Laden's wives charged the SEALs and that binLaden had "resisted" before he was killed, even if he was unarmed.

    "My worry from the beginning is, you know, it's a political season. This book is not political whatsoever," Owen told CBS. "You know, if these -- crazies on either side of the aisle want to make it political, shame on them. This is a book about Sept. 11, and it needs to rest on Sept. 11. Not be brought into the political arena, because this-- this has nothing to do with politics."
    Your book may not be political but you were used as a pawn to accomplish a political goal, Mr. Navy Seal. I hope you know that.

    I can't wait to buy my copy. It will be read while the ink is still wet if I have my way.

    These leaks are ****ing ridiculous. Granted, the American people have a right to know eventually, but there are tactics and strategies possibly mentioned in that book that could possibly be read by the enemy, and compromise National Defense Strategies. I was just as pissed when Mr. Obama decided to announce the Bin Laden raid RIGHT AFTER IT HAPPENED. The whole point behind a stealth mission like that is to get in, get the job done, and get out QUIETLY. But no, lets just air that **** on TV immediately so we can face possible reprocussions before we are prepared to deal with them. -facepalm-

    It was his idea to write the book. Or are you saying he was paid by the Republicans to write it? That's just silly. He is in trouble, though...the Pentagon has written him a letter threatening criminal action:

    "Entered room, woman there, OBL 'resisted' by going for an AK..."

    Same story I heard years ago.

    By some of the replies and "likes" on this thread I can see a few right wingers are still in pain because Obama was the guy who gave the final go ahead.

    The power elite is gonna have to learn that if it wants something truly classified, it's going to have to pay those who have access to it big $$.

    The author is likely just gambling on the perception that he's an American hero, so even if what he does breaks the law, he believe the USDOJ won't go after him.

    I think the author should have chosen the pen name Benedick Arnold. He is looking to cash in on his 15 minutes by throwing the reputation of the Navy Seals under the bus and saying **** you to the Pentagon. He legally signed non disclosure and the DOJ should pursue this if he has breeched his agreement. he will simply be remembered as a political pawn and a sell out instead of an American hero.

    I just read the link Maggie posted. This guy might be in some serious legal trouble.

    What are you ****ing talking about? I wasn't aware that Obama released any information on anything sensitive when he announced Bin Laden was killed. Or maybe you're thinking that the terrorists and insurgent groups would want to immediately retaliate for his death by attacking our troops in Afghanistan or Americans back in the states. The only problem with that ****ing logic is the death of Bin Laden wasn't a secret, firstly there were both survivors and witnesses to the raid that killed him so they obviously knew and word would spread that he had been killed. Secondly, being the President even made his announcement the story had already been leaked by several individuals in Congress and the military who were understandably extremely excited about the news, and in fact most news services were already reporting his death BEFORE the President even said it.
