SEAL's Bin Laden Raid Book Stirs Controversy
 
The author of the book, who writes under the pseudonym Mark Owen, was a SEAL Team Six team leader during the mission that took out the al Qaeda leader and was "one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist leader's hideout," according to a statement from the book's publisher, Dutton. The book, "No Easy Day," is set to be released next month on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

But no U.S. officials - from the White House to the Department of Defense to the CIA - have reviewed the book's account of the top secret mission for any possible breaches of national security, officials from the departments told ABC News and The Associated Press.

A Dutton spokesperson said the book was vetted by a "former special operations attorney" for "tactical, technical, and procedural information as well as information that could be considered classified by compilation and [the attorney] found it to be without risk to national security," according to a Reuters report.

FoxNews already outed his real identity the other day, didn't they? He might want to look into becoming part of a witness-protection program or whatever Salman Rushdie does these days to stay alive.
