Pentagon expected to inform former Navy Seal, now author, that he violated secrecy agreements & all royalties might be taken.
If ex-Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette discloses classified information in his upcoming tell-all on the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, he could be subject to criminal prosecution under the Espionage Act, as we noted earlier. But even if he doesn't divulge any secrets, he's still got major legal problems. That is, according to a document surfaced by Steven Aftergood, a secrecy expert with the Federation of American Scientists.

That's because Special Forces personnel like Bissonnette are typically required to sign non-disclosure agreements that require them to submit manuscripts to the government before they publish books for the general public. These documents pertain to authors who had access to "sensitive compartmented information," or in laymen's terms, classified intelligence information, which the Osama bin Laden mission certainly qualifies as. And according to Aftergood, the precedent for the government going after author's like Bissonnette is fairly straightforward. "The government’s authority to enforce a non-disclosure agreement in this way was affirmed by a federal court most recently in the case of USA v. Ishmael Jones," he writes. "In that case, Jones (the pseudonym of a former CIA officer) published his manuscript without completing the prepublication review process." You can see a copy of this type of Pentagon non-disclosure agreement here.

They can say anything they want, and no one will be able to prove otherwise.

Because it's all a "secret".

Pretty clever when you think about it.

But don't think about it too much, or they'll declare your thoughts to be a secret too.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20952020


Again..This has been in formation since 1962>CE1

The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), also known as DEVGRU for short, or more commonly by its former name, SEAL Team Six (ST6),[1][2] is one of the United States' four secretive counter-terrorism and Special Mission Units (SMUs).
The vast majority of information about DEVGRU is highly classified, and details of its activities are not officially commented on by either the White House or the Department of Defense.
[3] While DEVGRU is administratively supported by the Naval Special Warfare Command, it is operationally commanded by the Joint Special Operations Command. It is based at Training Support Center Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach, Virginia, known as FTC Dam Neck until 2004.[4]
The CIA's highly secretive Special Activities Division (SAD) and more specifically its elite Special Operations Group (SOG) is rumored to recruit operators from SEAL Team Six.[5] Joint Navy SEALs and CIA operations go back to the famed MACV-SOG group during the Vietnam War.[6] This cooperation still exists today and is seen in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.[7][8]

Re: Pentagon expected to inform former Navy Seal, now author, that he violated secrecy agreements & all royalties might be taken.
Any good attorney is going to argue that his "secrecy oath" only covered him while he was in the employee of the USN. Once discharged he's a private citizen again with the exception of military secrets so classified which might have come across his desk/field of knowledge while on duty.

There is also the issue that Obama's murder was illegal and therefore he is doing nothing more than publishing the details of a crime which he was ordered/forced to participate in.

Bottom line is that his "secrecy oath" isn't enforceable and the courts will slap the military down for trying to do so.

The "manuscript review clause" he signed would not be applicable to a narrative of a crime he was forced to commit while on duty. In fact if he believed it to be a criminal act under either the host country or under US laws, he has a duty to report it to the proper officials.

Given the sensitive nature of the matter, he could make an arguement that had he submitted it for review it would have been destroyed and the truth of the Bin Ladden Murder would never have been known.
I for one am glad he had the balls to tell the world what happened! Once we have the facts, we can form our own opinions

Pentagon just plays its part in the marketing campaign. If the Pentagon indicates it doesn't like the book to be published, that tome of lies sells better because the sheep think they get the truth... which is exactly what the Pentagon wants the public to believe.
