US Army Veteran Reacts to Possibility of Legal Action by Pentagon Against Author of Bin Laden Raid Tell-All
The Pentagon is threatening legal action against a previous one-time member of Navy SEALS Team 6 who was there the night that Osama bin Laden was killed. He's also the author of a book on the raid in which the al Qaeda terrorist was taken out, which includes previously unknown details on the mission.
Pete Hegseth, the CEO of Concerned Veterans of America and a veteran of operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan, told Fox News Friday that while the Pentagon should follow procedure if classified details get released if and when the book hits shelves, pursuing such legal action may not be a wise move for the Obama administration.
According to Hegseth, politically,
he doesn't see how it's a good idea to "pick a fight with SEALS" 70 days out from the general presidential election.
As for the claims that the book includes classified information, Hegseth said he won't "outright condemn a book" that he hasn't read and doubts the former SEAL would have published such classified info after signing non-disclosure agreements.
Watch his full insight, and let us know what you think about this controversial book:
