It’s not a question of it being worth reading. It’s a question of opsec, the tricks of the trade that allow SEALs to sneak in, get a job done, and get out alive.

When those current tricks are included in a book, it puts the lives of our specops warriors in direct danger. Or, by outing the tactics, it puts them off the table and makes them unusable.

Either way, it’s a violation of a very basic trust to cash in by giving out current operational tradecraft and other secrets.

I agree. I think a lot of the current publicity, books and film about the bin Ladin killing is worst of both worlds. It is dishonest, political propaganda and it puts our Seals at risk.

I refuse to support either.
