Obama Administration Upset to Hear Navy SEAL Will Release First Hand Account of Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden

A Navy SEAL is releasing the real story on the Osama Bin Laden raid.

For the first time a member of SEAL Team 6 has written a book setting the record straight on the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. The book was not authorized by the Obama Administration and will give the real story not told by the Obama-media.
The book was vetted by a former special operation’s attorney. The majority of the proceeds from the book will go to charities that support families of fallen Navy SEALs.
Reuters reported:

The U.S. government was surprised by the news that a Navy SEAL who participated in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan has written a book about the operation in which the al Qaeda leader was killed, U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

“No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden” was written by a Navy SEAL under the pseudonym Mark Owen with co-author Kevin Maurer and is to be released next month on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

It was not vetted by government agencies to ensure that no secrets were revealed.

“The book was vetted by a former special operations attorney. He vetted it for tactical, technical, and procedural information as well as information that could be considered classified by compilation and found it to be without risk to national security,” Christine Ball, a spokeswoman for the publisher, Dutton, told Reuters…


Dutton, which is a member of the Penguin Group (USA), said the Navy SEAL author’s experience culminated with “Operation Neptune Spear” in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where he led one of the assault teams on bin Laden’s compound and was “one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist leader’s hideout and was present at his death.”

The Navy SEAL is described as a former member of the U.S. Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as SEAL Team Six, who was involved in hundreds of missions around the world.

His name and the names of the other SEALs mentioned in the book were changed for security reasons, the publisher said. The majority of the proceeds from the book will go to charities that support families of fallen Navy SEALs, the publisher said.

“It is time to set the record straight about one of the most important missions in U.S. military history,” the Navy SEAL author said in the book, according to the publisher’s statement. “‘No Easy Day’ is the story of ‘the guys,’ the human toll we pay, and the sacrifices we make to do this dirty job.”

Congressional Republicans criticized the administration for granting generous access to policymakers and some intelligence and defense personnel to a Hollywood team preparing a film on the bin Laden raid for release later this year.

For the record… Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions, before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission – and he waited 16 hours before he made the call.

    You know Obama will refute it because he was there leading the mission and saw everything that went down…watch! Remember, Obama has also tried to co-opt 9/11 and rename it a “national day of service”, because he wants to take the heat off of the Muslim religion and it’s eternal ties to that horrific day.

    NOW they’re worried about secrets being revealed?

    This is how moderates on both sides Conservatives today:

    “I want to be clear on where I see current American conservatism coming from. Stupidity is a bartender at a bar called the Echo Chamber. This bartender over serves his best customer, Bigotry, drinks of 100 proof hate. Bigotry sits at the bar lamenting to Stupidity that he has not had sex with his wife in years and in walks Ignorance and her twin sister Intolerance. By closing time these two unattractive but willing sisters appear to be goddesses to Bigotry but they aren’t willing to share their bodies for nothing and they need a place to make their trade. So Bigotry takes the twin sisters to a hotel called Religion and he sets their pay for services in Lies on the nightstand and they spend a night engaged in the best sex Bigotry has ever had. A year later the twins are both back in the Echo Chamber pushing strollers Intolerance has a child called Family Values and Ignorance has a child she calls Anti-Intellectualism. Since Bigotry is married to a woman called Nationalism he builds them a house away from his exurban life and he names that house Conservatism.”

    Our brave military recognize that Obama does not support them and is in fact embarrassed of America’s military might and superiority. They understand that Obama is bound and determined to break our military and bring our country ‘down to size’. By oath, they must obey him, but that doesn’t mean they agree with him. Our founding fathers had amazing vision to make our military vow to defend the Constitution and NOT the POTUS. Good on this SEAL team member to get the word out and clarify just what happened that day. It was not wimpy Obama who ‘made that happen’.

    This book will sell out within days, if not hours, of its release. It will be fun to compare a hero’s true story to that of Hollyweird’s sycophantic fantasy story of the complainer-in-chief.

    If you haven’t seen “2016: Obama’s America” you need to go. It has only been showing in a few theaters and Hollyweird is surprised it has done so well. It will be in 1,075 theaters starting this weekend. Rush told us that Thomas Sowell, who lives in Palo Alto, had to drive 30 miles to see it, sitting in the aisle in the balconey, the theater was so crowded. Sowell reported that the audience “sat at rapt full attention.”

    Because d’Sousa put his book in film alot of people are just learning about Obama. It’s a good thing.

    God bless this patriot. And I love that they won’t be able to say he’s doing it for his own profit! The regime will have no leg to stand on here.

    Spoken like an experienced lady of the evening. Blame men for everything wrong in your life.

    I realize idiot boy is POTUS, but it was his puppet master, Valerie Jarrett, who put the kabosh on the raid three times. Either she finally relented or he surprised all by making a decision on his own. I think it was the former.

    I think it was “American Thinker” that had an article about Bammy being someone’s marionette.

  • kato

    There will still be plenty of secrets left to tell. Until we get Valerie Jarrett’s book, we won’t know how she went about making the fateful decision.

    Or why she decided to dump bin Laden’s body in the ocean. That’s eerily similar to the show trial in China, where the body of the allegedly murdered Brit was cremated before any evidence could be procured.

  • crackermike

    RE#4, Sarah. I’m afraid you’re having hate issues arise again. You must seek help immediately. You sound like you’re on the edge, honey.

    I don’t see why they are upset. Now everyone will know exactly how Obama did it. /s

    Sarah #4:

    Thanks for further evidence of the mental disorder.

    I detect what psychiatrists call “projection.” Of course, when it comes to “family values,” your side doesn’t have much to project, but intolerance, ignorance, bigotry? It’s all there, in spades, so to speak.

  • Sasja

    I read in Sarah’s rant that she had an affair with a married man, decided to get pregnant thinking he would leave his wife and marry her. That didn’t happen and now she’s one bitter old broad.

    Sarah, it seldom bodes well for women who elect to have an affair with a married man.

  • astounded

    I read a piece over on Jammie Wearing Fools that suggests Valerie Jarrett wanted to hold off on the bin Laden raid until the end of October of 2012, just before the election, to get a bump for Obama. She reportedly was “furious” that Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and Robert Gates went around Obama when they were as certain as possible they could get bin Laden. If this story is true, it is despicable at best, treasonous really, and should be investigated under oath. I personally don’t doubt it is true.

  • chris

    Poor Sarah, lacking an original thought, she copies and pates the drive of the save the whales, save the spotted owl, kill the black babies (planned parenthood), gay loving, God hating, progressive, intollerent, left.

    Oops, I almost forgot America hating, Arab spring loving (the real war on women) liberal arts degree holding waste of space. After seeing how you turned out, I am sure your ‘breeding pair are pro abortion.

    I’ll buy it, read it, talk about it, distribute it.

    RE Obama? The world is made up for the most part of morons and natural tyrants, sure of themselves, strong in their own opinions, never doubting anything
    General Eisenhower said ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’ BESIDES YOU SURE AS HELL CAN ‘T BELIEVE BO! BO? falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus false in one thing, false

    Supporting perverts is not a moderate postion. Its far left field at the World Series of Stupidity at the Stadium of Crazy

    The APA says homosexuality is a symptom of an underlining mental disorder Yes, the SYMPTOM,not the disoder itsself (the former position)

    You dont get special rights from symptoms of disorders.

  • Paul A’Barge

    … because the only people who get to release details about the raid are Obama administration officials who do so anonymously.

  • ordered.

  • GotFreedom

    Thanks for telling America the “truth” and we hope this brave patriot stays safe. . .and you all know what we mean. . .just sayin!

  • see sarah fluke posted in #4

  • wordygirl

    Just saw coverage of this book on CNN morning with that woman Costello (nice bleach job by the way). She couched the book as a tacky way to cash-in on the death of Osama bin Laden. Absolutely NO self-awareness of the irony of her comments in light of the leaks from the Obama administration and their disclosures of secrets to Katherin Bigelow to make the Zero Dark THirty movie. These people are truly evil in their ability to twist the news to protect their Obama.

  • Militant conservative

    The military dispises Obama.

    Not a hand full like the swift boat vets. Bout 80%. Obama
    Cut combat pay, cut military budgets and even wanted our
    Combat wounded to pay for their own hospital cost, after all they volunteered.

    Obama has run his course like a severe case of diarrhea.
    Now it’s all about his policy failures and he has nothing but worm toungued sycophants for followers.

    I look forward to the riots.

    Powder is dry

    Obama Administration Upset, nothing new, he has been “upset” about anyone who stands up for something other then himself.

    Big Ego on this guy, yes, sad to say he is president but sad to tell him, he isn’t God, either.

    Anyone care write a book and upset or not, I would love to hear the truth. The Seals do risk their life and so do our other troops. Many books have been written by Vets and why would this be so different. Experiences and actual accounts are important and their are many who are waiting to hear the TRUTH. Hope is sells millions and I admire the courage on the fields and now, under fire at home by a President who hasn’t come out for the men and women recently who have lost their life.

    Oh, I would hate to see Obama with egg on his face!!!

  • Sasja

    You can pre-order this book on Amazon. Says it will be available October 16th.

  • netpollution

    All the more reason to make sure everyone you know, their mothers, fathers, grandparents and adult children (no dead people please) … get to the polls in November and cast a vote for good! This administration has GOT TO GO!

    The only National Security secrets Obama cares about are those that would ruin his chance for re-election. I hope that the seals don’t wind up like Andrew Breidbart who suddenly died just before he released video tapes of Obama during his college days with radicals,etc. Funny how the videos conveniently disappeared. And what about the coroner suddenly dying right after Breidbart passed away? Coincidence? NOT!
    Looking forward to Navy Seals book release. Finally we will know what actually happened.

  • Patty


    Barack Obama actually said this

    “It is very rare I come to an event where I’m like the fifth or sixth most interesting person. Usually the folks want to take a picture with me, sit next to me, talk to me. That has not been the case at this event and I completely understand.”

    The article says that the book will be released on Sept 11 but Amazon says October 16th. I wonder where the truth lies.

    Personally, I somehow doubt Obama even made the call.

    I don’t know why the blowhard Obama would be upset. He has already made public all the classified information, which, in itself, is an act of treason. He, through his minions, has divulged more classified than even Sen. Leaky Leahy.
