Matt Bissonnette, the former Navy SEAL who penned the book No Easy Day detailing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, will appear on CBS’ 60 Minutes, claiming the book is about honor - not politics.
The former SEAL Team 6 member, who used the pseudonym Mark Owen before he was outed by Fox News, told CBS:
My worry from the beginning is, you know, it's a political season. This book is not political whatsoever. It doesn't bad mouth either party, and we specifically chose September 11th to keep it out of the politics. You know, if these-- crazies on either side of the aisle want to make it political, shame on them. This is a book about September 11th, and it needs to rest on September 11th. Not be brought into the political arena, because this-- this has nothing to do with politics.
Ever since Fox News revealed the identity of the former Navy SEAL, he has become a marked man, with al-Qaeda leaders calling for his death.
