    Bin Laden Raid Book: First-Hand Account Of Navy SEAL Mission Will Be Released On Sept. 11

    Not sure this is such a cool idea....but It'll be an interesting read for sure.

    Releasing it on Sept. 11th is......odd....

    Could be an interesting read to your point HD. Big fan of military reads, so may have to check it out.

    Jawbreaker is another good read for those inclined on the subject (OBL).

    Ironic that this news comes to light today, just one day after the twitter hoax regarding the SEAL who put two caps in OBL's @$$ being killed in Afghanistan.

    Seems as though many military higher ups are concerned about this trend, as they do this for service to country..

    From Joint Chief of Staff Dempsey..

    From U.S. Army Special Forces Maj. Fernando Lujan

    The administration has been working on a movie with Hollywood for a film on the killing of OBL for an October release, the producers had access to classified information.

    Happy to oblige:

    Obama Administration Gives Navy SEAL Team 6 Commander's Name To Filmmakers - Investors.com


    Access Hollywood: Pentagon, CIA leaked Bin Laden raid info to filmmakers — RT




    Imagine endangering the life of the Seal Team 6 commander by leaking his name for a freakin movie to try to help his floundering campaign, total disgrace.

    But I'm sure you loved this book "Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him"

    Read more: President 'Leading from Behind?' - Interviews - Hannity - Fox News

    That is fair and balanced :rolleyes:

    Shouldn't your anger about this movie be aimed at the DOD and CIA? Even then I didn't see much about Obama in this link Weekly Update: JW Roils Washington | Judicial Watch apart from the normal right wing hysteria about everything Obama.

    Well Sen DiFi is upset with the administration about the leaks.

    BTW Panetta is Def Sec and headed CIA, who do you think told them to work with the filmmaker anyway?

    Wonder if it will cover his curious "burial at sea" within 12 hours of death. :rolleyes:

    I know that some of the chatter from various milblogs is that many seals (former and current), are not very happy how the "narrative" was framed for them by the administration.

    This book is probably, at least in part, a way to frame it themselves instead.

    Not that I think that is a particularly good idea, but you can see where it comes from. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably read it, but the point is, I shouldn't be able to. There's a reason that these guys have operated shrouded in secrecy for some many decades. We should have never even known who carried out this raid, and if someone hadn't been spiking the football so hard, we probably never would have.

    Not to take this OT, but can you elaborate Titus?

    Are you coming from a conspiracy theorist POV - i.e. we didnt really get him? Or maybe who was buried at sea wasn't him?

    Or are you questioning the reasoning behind it?

    I believe he's been dead for over 10 years.

    Are you honestly comparing the irresponsible actions of the President to the irresponsible actions of a news media outlet??? :mad: :mad:

    BTW, Mrs, do you have any sanctimonious outrage for "HuffPo" which is also reporting the guy's name? Or how about for yourself, Mrs, since you have now brought his name into this forum?

    I don't believe Obama leaked the guys name all over a national network, did he? I never heard it, did you? All I heard was that there was going to be a movie and it was based on truth - but I never heard any names. If you have a link, though, please let us know.

    You never spent much time on a farm, did you, WP? If you had, you'd know that it does no good to close the barn door after the horse has escaped.

    I never said that that's what he did, Mrs, did I?
    If there's 10 horses in that barn, Mrs, then ya closing the door is a good idea when only 1 has escaped. They shouldn't have published the name without his consent, Mrs. And neither you nor HuffPo should be disseminating it.

    Perhaps your high horse is too tall for you to see your own hypocrisy, Mrs.

    Fox News continues to get heat for outing Matt Bissonette, unfortunately you will not hear much about it..

    Apparently when you enlist you sign a document about confidentiality, and the book is supposed to be reviewed by the Pentagon.. this is not specific to the Obama administration, it is a long standing practice..

    There are many Seals who are upset with what he did, and now that Fox News has outed him... he may become a target.
