No move to ban controversial book on Osama: Pentagon
Charlotte (North Carolina): The Pentagon has ruled out any move to ban the sale of the controversial book on the killing of Osama bin Laden, which it says has been written by a former Navy SEAL in breach of contractual obligations and contains classified information.
"There`s been no directive from this department to withhold sale of the book from military exchanges," the Pentagon Press Secretary George Little told reporters at a news conference in response to a series of questions on the controversial book that hit the stands yesterday.
"This book is being made widely available in bookstores and online. It is not our typical practice to get into the business of deciding what and what does not go on bookshelves in military exchanges," he said.
"But that doesn`t mean in any way, shape or form that we don`t have serious concerns about the fact that this process of pre-publication review was not followed," Little said.
"This is a solemn obligation. The author in this case elected not to abide by his legal obligations.
"That`s disheartening and, frankly, is something that we`re taking a very close look at," he said.
