What a bunch of hypocrites! They persecute a Navy SEAL for telling the truth, yet those SOBs leak top secret details about the mission to make a freaking film about it?!
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. That really pisses me off!
romney should announce that if elected... he will grant amnesty to this American Hero the very moment he takes the oath of office.
Really? While I agree the SEAL is a hero, it’s definitely not because of writing this book. Anybody leaking sensitive information should be prosecuted regardless of their intention. Most special operatives are upset about this book because it could offer more information about their tactics to our enemies, which increases the amount of danger they have to face.
The Obama Administration is just pissed because he scooped the Kathryn Bigelow film due out as an October surprise.
For all the details that have leaked out, there hasn’t been a lot of front line details abuot strategy or tactics. If the book has any information that’s not already public, that’s not ok and he’s not a hero because of that.
To suggest that Romney should announce amnesty for the author is incredibly absurd and sets a precedence that military leaks are fine as long as they benefit the person in power. Imagine what the White House leaks would be like if the president announced that they’re heros for talking on their own.

This guy is going to have a legal colonoscopy and the book will not even be released...mark my words.
There’s no chance this book sees the light of day.
