The Pentagon has determined the former Navy SEAL who has authored a book about his role in the Osama bin Laden raid is in “material breach” of non-disclosure agreements and warned him it is considering legal action against him as a result.
It added that it is considering legal action against all those “acting in concert” with the SEAL on his book, “No Easy Day,” which is scheduled to be released Tuesday.
A letter by Pentagon general counsel Jeh Johnson informed the former SEAL that he had violated non-disclosure agreements against releasing classified information.
“In the judgment of the Department of Defense, you are in material breach and violation of the non-disclosure agreements you signed,” wrote Johnson. “Further public dissemination of your book will aggravate your breach and violation of your agreements.”
