Pentagon says bin Laden book has classified secrets
 

The Defense Department on Tuesday said that No Easy Day, a new book by a former Navy SEAL chronicling the death of Osama bin Laden, contains classified information that could put U.S. national security at risk. The book has attracted enormous interest for its firsthand account of the commando raid that killed bin Laden. The author, Mark Bissonnette, has disputed the Pentagon's claim that he was legally obliged to have the book screened by government officials before publication. A spokesman for the Pentagon said the department is still weighing what legal actions it may take against Bissonnette.
