My two cents on the book “No Easy Day”
First, you cannot compare it to Wikileaks, that was done by a disgruntled asshat who grabbed as much secret stuff he could and sent gave it to someone to share with the world which probably caused a lot of people to die and he somehow expected not to get into trouble. If anything, that guy deserves the Darwin Award just for being a dumbass, he purposely wanted to do as much damage as he could.
No Easy Day on the other hand is a story that I bet a fair percentage of the population dreamed about for the last 11 years. The boogieman was finally caught, I rejoined the military to see this guy taken out and I, for one wouldn’t mind hearing the story. This is the tallest of tall tales, what we have spent trillions of dollars to accomplish and as me being Joe Public, would like to hear about the end result, unedited and uncut. Hopefully the truth as told by a highly motivated decorated warrior.
Some secrets are too big to keep and I’m glad this one is getting aired to the world and I’m looking forward to drinking a cold beer while reading about it. I’m just wondering about who got the reward and if someone did, did we set him up nice. That story and Roswell, then I’ll be a happy camper.
