Osama Bin Laden killing book angers US military
A book about the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden, written by a former Navy Seal who took part in the mission, contains classified information and the Pentagon is reviewing legal options, a Defence Department spokesman said.
The book's co-author denied the book contained any information which would jeopardise the safety or future missions of Navy special-forces personnel.
The book, No Easy Day, chronicles last year's operation in which members of US Navy Seal Team Six swooped by helicopter into the al-Qa'ida leader's house in Pakistan and killed him, ending a manhunt which began with the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, DC.
