A Navy SEAL used the pseudonym Mark Owen to write an upcoming book on the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. The book is called “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden.” Pre-order here.

It gets released on Sept. 11th.

The SEAL, who Fox News surprisingly outed, is likely gonna face another tough mission – avoiding legal trouble. The Pentagon has not vetted the account or authorized the book.

Not completely sure how I feel about this. It feels kinda wrong for a SEAL to write a book and profit from the mission while the others who were with him that night gain nothing. They should have written it together or not at all.

Still, I will probably buy this book.
