The Autobiography Of A Navy SEAL: The First Hand Account Of The Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden
By Mark Owen With Kevin Maurer
Written under an alias with a help from a professional writer, this story is consistent with other recent books by experienced US special forces. They decide as children to become soldiers and are driven to that goal. They are deployed and use all of their training to complete their missions. This book is unique because of the mission more than anything else. A woman CIA analyst tries for years to convince the Bush administration to act on her information, the Obama administration looks at her report and gives the green light so the SEALs can do their jobs. It is a clear step by step account of killing UBL.
The Navy SEALs say the only easy day is yesterday. Looking back, I wonder how the attackers ten years ago thought it would end. What is it like knowing so many people want you dead? If you did something this horrible, you have to know that you are eventually going to be killed in the middle of the night in front of your family by a complete stranger. It may take years but it is going to happen. The big house in the nice neighborhood only makes you an easier target. Any videos you out put online give more information to the good guys. Anyone even remotely associated with you will be hunted down and killed. Smart people would try to distance themselves or come forward with more information. Maybe you could beg for mercy, but how much did you show those you attacked? With no future, yesterday may be the only easy day for you.
