Really? Really, people? "Obama did it" so what "Mark" did is justified??? Since when do Americans think that two wrongs make a right? This other SEAL is dead on target. This WAS a betrayal of trust and of oath. NONE of this information should ever have come out, from the initial bin Laden mission through this book. These are SUPPOSED TO BE secret missions--missions the American people should neither want nor be able to know about--that's what we elect REPRESENTATIVES in Congress for, to "represent" us in the conduct and operation of our government. That's how our Founding Fathers set this whole thing up. I love knowing all about these sorts of missions, but none of us should and I would prefer us not for nation security.

All involved in this mission need to shut their mouths until it is declassified 25 years from now.

And-------if you don't know, how is that we are going to? We have long relied upon you to get to the bottom of this and report back to us. I for one am supremely dispapointed in that you have fallen well short of substantial findings.

Just as clearly, I was right and some--like you--have absolutely no comprehension of what this second SEAL is saying--or understanding of its essential truth.

". . . there needs to exist a group of people who will say nothing more than “yes sir” when it comes to the defense of our most sacred ideas."

Not understanding that, you understand nothing.

Like him or not, the Commander in Chief is exactly that and no one in the military has the right to question his authority, or violate his oath.

As CinC, he should have kept his mouth shut as well other than announcing the results that Osama was dead.

There’s a new book coming out and it’s causing quite a kerfuffle in the military community. “No Easy Day,” written by Navy SEAL Team 6 member Mark Owen (pen name) and author Kevin Maurer, whose previous books covered Special Operations, reveals a first-hand account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. In the book Owen writes, "it is time to set the record straight about one of the most important missions in U.S. military history."

The problem? The book wasn’t vetted by the Pentagon or CIA, leaving many concerned with whether the information released is classified and could...
