Navy SEAL author of bin Laden book identified
 

Fox News reported on Thursday the identity of the Navy SEAL who is preparing to publish a firsthand account of the American commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011. The SEAL was identified as 36-year-old Matt Bissonnette, a fact later confirmed by the Defense Department. Due to concerns for his safety, Bissonnette had intended to use a nom de plume to hide his identity, and his publisher says it does not have plans to change its publicity strategy, which included having Bissonnette interviewed on television in disguise.
