Qaeda wants Navy SEAL who penned Osama book killed

The book, ‘No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden’, is scheduled to be released on September 11.

Washington: Al Qaeda has demanded the death of the former Navy SEAL, who penned a book giving a first-person account of the killing of Osama bin Laden in a raid at his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

A jihadist forum, Al-Fidaa, located in Malaysia, posted the ‘death calls’ and provided the author`s name and photograph under a headline titled "First Image of One of the Dogs who killed Bin Laden”.

According to CBS News, Al-Fidaa, which is also used by al Qaeda to recruit suicide bombers, posted comments by one of its members, Abu Dujanah al-Kinani, warning that the "lion`s cubs”, referring to Osama’s name that interprets to ‘lion’ in Arabic, are now waiting for the right time to avenge his death.

The book, ‘No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden’, which is scheduled to be released on September 11 this year, is being promoted by its publisher Dutton, as the first inside account of "Operation Neptune Spear”, the code name for the raid that took place on the night of May 01, 2011, in Osama’s Abbottabad compound in Pakistan.

The book has also triggered fresh questions about the possible public release of classified information, involving the assassination of the long-wanted terrorist, Osama.
