The Navy Seal raid that killed Osama bin Laden is one of the most famous and publicized missions of all time, and anyone can read the details of the operation in the book "No Easy Day" -- but the Pentagon isn't pleased that a former Navy Seal penned it.
The author, Mark Owen, says he was the second person in the room when bin Laden was killed, and part of his duty was to take pictures of the body of the notorious leader of Al Qaeda who orchestrated the attack on Sept. 11, 2001.
Owen wrote, "It was strange to see such an infamous face up close. Lying in front of me was the reason we had been fighting for the last decade."
Yet, another former Navy Seal says the book could put Owen's life in danger -- saying the terrorists are not likely to forget the loss of their leader.
Reviews of the book are serving up a lot of controversy because the author never got government approval, which is standard for books like this -- and the Pentagon says the book contains classified information that could give enemies dangerous insight into future operations.
FOX 9 News spoke with former CIA officer Jack Rice to understand why the Pentagon is so concerned.
