    Last week, the Pentagon made it clear that it plans to take action against former SEAL Matt Bissonnette.

Their raid was being turned into a bad action movie. These distortions seemed funny at first. But “Mark Owen” (the pseudonym...

Scott Taylor, president of the Special Ops OPSEC Education Fund, called on Attorney General Eric Holder to get an injunction against the publication of "No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden."
