Classified info revealed by bin Laden raid book

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [August 31, 2012]

Well there is a shocker. DoD sent him a letter informing him that he had screwed the pooch.

The letter, addressed to "Mark Owen," the pseudonym under which the book was written, identified two separate non-disclosure agreements he signed with the Navy that legally committed him to never divulge classified information, which is a crime.

"You are in material breach and violation of the non-disclosure agreements you signed," said the letter by Jeh Johnson, the Pentagon's General Counsel.

"The Department of Defense is considering pursuing against you, and all those acting in concert with you, all remedies legally available to us in light of this situation."

Given that the entire raid was pretty heavily classified it was going to be tough tp write a book that didn't reveal at least something that violated those agreements. The only thing he has going in his favor is the almost interminable jaw-flapping Obama has had his surrogates doing about the op. He has used it to distract everyone from his excremental job of ensuring our economy is wrecked and our debt grows too high to even count. The SEAL can argue this if he decides to fight this in court somewhere and gets to talk to a jury. But the problem is that Obama can declassify anything he wants, and apparently has to make himself look good and to get that move out in time for the election. But if this dude said one thing that is not officially declassified he is done.

Two wrongs do not make a right.
