Author of book on Bin Laden raid admits to error

In an inverview on '60 Minutes, Matt Bissonnette said federal officials may charge him with disclosing classified information in his book, 'No Easy Day,' which he wrote under the pseudonym Mark Owen.60 Minutes/CBS News In an inverview on ’60 Minutes, Matt Bissonnette said federal officials may charge him with disclosing classified information in his book, ‘No Easy Day,’ which he wrote under the pseudonym Mark Owen.

The Navy Seal who fired fatal rounds into Osama Bin Laden in 2011 said Sunday that the federal government is investigating him.

Matt Bissonnette, who published “No Easy Day” in 2012 under the pseudonym Mark Owen, said on CBS’s “60 Minutes” that federal officials are considering charging him with disclosing classified information in the book.

Bissonnette admits he should have had the book reviewed by military censors, but said the mistake was due to bad legal advice.

“Had we purposely tried to go around what my obligations were, absolutely I should be held accountable,” said Bissonnette, whose identity was concealed. “I got horrible advice.”
