Navy SEAL under fire for tell all book

This is the book at the centre of a dispute between the U.S. government and a former Navy SEAL. Matt Bissonnette was one of the elite team who last year killed Osama bin Laden in a compound near Islamabad. Originally praised for his daring, Bissonnette's come under fierce criticsm for potentially leaking classified information in his account of the mission in his book "No Easy Day". (SOUNDBITE) (English) ATTORNEY MARK ZAID SAYING: "The message that is sent to anyone in the United States who has worked on classified information is you can brazenly turn your back on your disclosure, on your non-disclosure agreements and make your own choices and you can't do that." Bissonnette used the pseudonym Mark Owens but the discovery of his real identity has put him and his family at risk of al-Qaeda retaliation. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER NAVY SEAL AND AUTHOR OF "INSIDE SEAL TEAM SIX" DON MANN SAYING: "If I were Matt (Bissonnette-author of 'No Easy Day') I would go hangout in the mountains, and disappear, change my name, and take care of his family." It's thought the US government is taking a harsh stance over Bissonnette due to the intelligence community's failure to keep vital information about such missions, secret.
