A publishing house is reissuing a Navy SEAL novel set in Vietnam that helped inspire author Mark Owen of the best-selling "No Easy Day."
The Pentagon has already reviewed this book. When we don't like a book, most of us in the business of literary criticism give it a bad review and suggest that people not buy it. The Pentagon's reviewers have threatened to prosecute the author. That has made book reviewing a full contact sport. Unfortunately, it will also increase sales; that is poor strategy on the part of the bureaucrats.
CBS News is disguising the identity of a retired Navy SEAL who wrote a book about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden so it can protect "an American hero" _ even though other media outlets have said who he is.
The publication of a former Navy SEAL's first-hand account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden has been moved up a week, to Sept. 4.
A member of the U.S. Navy SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden has written a firsthand account of the operation, triggering more questions about the possible public release of classified information involving the historic assault of the terror leader's compound in Pakistan.
He said the book is about "the guys" and the sacrifices that the special operations forces make to do the job and is written in the hope that it will inspire young men to become SEALs.
Owen, a pseudonym for a former SEAL widely believe to be Matt Bissonnette, said in a statement that he had a "strict desire" not to endanger national security.
