Former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette is going to tell his version of events surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden, even if the Pentagon sues him for every last penny.
Last night, the Defense Department's top attorney wrote a letter to Bissonnette threatening to use "all remedies legally available" against him for the publication of No Easy Day, his firsthand account of the mission to kill bin Laden in Pakistan.

Yes yes I know two wrongs do not make a right but since we are talking contract breach let's air all the dirty laundry shall we, after all, your government appears very adept in ignoring such matters when it suits their masters' agenda, imho of course.

This stinks of psy-op and I'm sure most of the sheeple will eat it up without a second thought.
