#1 Release of SEAL book could ignite fight with the Pentagon09-04-2012, 02:58 PM(CNN) -- The much-anticipated memoir of a Navy SEAL who helped kill Osama bin Laden hits bookshelves Tuesday to an eager audience whose pre-orders have already put the book at No. 1 on Amazon's bestseller list for two weeks.
But the Pentagon may not be as eager to see the release of "No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden."
Last week, the Pentagon general counsel threatened legal action against the former Navy SEAL who wrote the revealing book.
"None of us were huge fans of Obama. We respected him as the commander-in-chief of the military and for giving us the green light on the mission," wrote the former SEAL, who was a 36-year-old chief petty officer when he left the Navy as a highly decorated commando in April.

Pentagon: Book on bin Laden raid includes classified information
This could get ugly. Speaking of that:
Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear dog tags.

Its funny they are all for manning giving secrets to a foreign national to embarrass this country but when a vet does it to show what a bad ass he is they aren't so accommodating.We're from Philadelphia, We Fight- Chip Kelly

Who in the administration has supported Bradley Manning? I've missed that completely."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

I have to admit that there is a part of me that wants to read the book-for the inside scoop on what happened. It is likely a fascinating story. I suspect a lot of people feel that way.
He should have had the DOD vet it first, if that is what the rules require, regarding national security.

There must be something in there that crucifies obama. I am sure they will file it with obama's records. We wouldn't want anyone to know the truth about him you know.
I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....
