Ex-Navy SEAL faces legal jeopardy for writing about bin Laden raid

What legal consequences could a former U.S. Navy SEAL face for writing a book about the still-classified 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden?  

Legal experts say the author could face trouble on two fronts — a civil lawsuit for not seeking a military review before the book was published and possible criminal prosecution for revealing classified information.

But a former Justice Department national security lawyer, Pat Rowan, said the government might be reluctant to prosecute a man who helped kill America's No. 1 terrorist enemy, unless the book reveals highly valuable and sensitive intelligence secrets.
