In reading any book about the Navy Seals and the killing of Bin Ladin I have no desire whatsoever to waste my time reading politically correct propaganda. I would only consider reading a book on the subject if the Obama Administration condemned it and tried to prevent its publication. If this happened, the book will probably contain true accounts of what really happened and be worth reading.

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.
