People just love to know secrets. Using the pen name Mark Owen, the author was a Navy SEAL on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden. No Easy Day has already become an Amazon best seller before its release date and promises to detail the mission despite the author’s statements to preserve national security. The Department of Defense was initially unaware of the former SEAL’s book and requested an advance copy to screen for potential security risks. In that first screening, the Pentagon’s general counsel is already threatening legal action for disclosures of sensitive information. (Too bad they can’t do that to loose-lipped politicians …) The book spans more than simply the raid on bin Laden’s compound and walks the reader through the author’s own growth in the military through special operations training and missions.
