I have no quarrel with writing down the facts of a major historical event for the future generations, but I think he should have waited to publish them until he died ( of natural causes) and not endangered colleagues, national defense or training strategies, and himself.

It smacks of seeking glory.

And before you quibble about the endangering of "training strategies", please note that on TV he said over and over again how well they'd been trained, the model they worked on, how their timing worked, the importance of hiding the information on the helicopter, their female intelligence operator, .....stuff terrorists would absorb with enthusiasm for their own attacks.

Then I have to add, woe is me, that before I saw the guy on 60 minutes, I had already ordered the book....
