Pentagon Unleashes More Criticism over SEAL's Book

Ad Feedback

The Pentagon launched fresh criticism against a former Navy SEAL's book about the death of Osama bin Laden.

The Department of Defense is still weighing possible legal action against the author, who has written under the pseudonym "Mark Owen."

Military officials said this week his book reveals sensitive and classified information that could help our enemies.

Reuters reports that the Pentagon has released new information showing that the former SEAL also violated a secrecy agreement.

In an interview airing on the CBS program "60 Minutes" this weekend, Owen said their bin Laden training was overseen by the military's top brass.

"They walked by, shook each of our hands, and said, 'Are you ready? Can you guys pull this off?'" he says. "We all said, 'Yes, absolutely.'"

Many details of Owen's account of the raid are different from the White House version.

For example, the White House claims bin Laden was shot twice while resisting capture. Owen said the SEALS shot Bin Laden as soon as they spotted him.

He also said the SEALs then pulled away two women wailing over bin Laden so they could shoot him again.
