A former Navy SEAL who penned a book on the clandestine raid that killed Osama bin Laden revealed classified information in his first-hand account and could face criminal charges, US officials have said. The Pentagon's warning came on Tuesday as the head of US Naval Special Warfare Command, Rear Admiral Sean Pybus, voiced outrage that some current or retired commandos were trying to cash in on their fame. "I am disappointed, embarrassed and concerned," Pybus wrote in a letter to troops, denouncing some former SEALs for delving into partisan politics or "hawking details about a mission against Enemy Number 1."
