Laden raid book :
The prior Navy SEAL who wrote a Laden raid book about his role in the attack that killed Osama bin Laden will pay to the government more than $6.6 million for break non-disclosure agreements and publishing without getting the document cleared by the security Department, according to joint court documents..
Matt Bissonnette, who wrote “No Easy Day” under the pen name Mark Owen, will give the US government all benefits and royalties from the book or movie rights. The profits before now total more than 6.6 million dollar. He will have four years to pay the scale of that.
The payments were defined in agreement documents filed in US District Court in Virginia.
According to the agreement, Bissonnette also has 30 days to pay $100,000 from the profits of displays he gave using slides that were not approved by the department.
The book triggered a Justice Department enquiry, including demand it contained classed material. Also Bissonnette had signed non-disclosure contract during his kindness as a SEAL, and he took part in a number of highly secret operations including the bin Laden raid.
Under this agreement, Bissonnette said he would agree he made a mistake by failing to submit the book for pre-publication analysis. And in interchange for the payments, the US government has fired other responsibility claims.
Justness Department spokeswoman Nicole Navas said the agreement does not slander Bissonnette’s army service, but increase that service members observe with the non-disclosure documents they sign.
Also Bissonnette has written a follow-up also under the name Owen and detailing his journey as a member of SEAL Team Six. That book, “No Hero: the Evolution of a Navy SEAL,” did go through the proper channels and a few sections were edited.
