US Navy Photo A Navy SEAL stalks a target during a training exercise.
On Wednesday, Fox News announced it planned to reveal the identity of the Navy SEAL who shot Osama Bin Ladenin a documentary set to air next month.
But in a statement issued to Business Insider, the Pentagon stressed that anyone who participated in the 2011 operation that left the Al Qaeda leader dead was “still bound” by a “non-disclosure agreement to not discuss classified information, especially in a nationally televised interview.”
This seems to indicate the SEAL could face a criminal investigation for participating in the documentary.
