Navy SEAL author rejects Pentagon’s legal threat

Posted on: Aug31 2012 | Leave A Comment

(Atlantic Wire) Former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette is going to tell his version of events surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden, even if the Pentagon sues him for every last penny.

Last night, the Defense Department’s top attorney wrote a letter to Bissonnette threatening to use “all remedies legally available” against him for the publication of No Easy Day, his firsthand account of the mission to kill bin Laden in Pakistan. “You are in material breach and violation of the nondisclosure agreements you signed,” wrote Pentagon general counsel Jeh Charles Johnson. The letter hinted at a criminal prosecution of Bissonnete for disclosing classified information and threatened to seize the royalties from his book and go after his publisher Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group. In a written response, a lawyer representing Bissonnette denied his client breached his nondisclosure agreement in a letter to the Pentagon.
