Publisher of bin Laden book refuses to back down
WASHINGTON – The publisher of an insider account of the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden said Friday it will begin public sales next week despite a Pentagon warning of possible legal action against the book's author and unspecified associates.
"At this time, we see no reason to change our plans," Christine Ball, a spokeswoman for the publisher, Penguin Group (USA)'s Dutton imprint, said in a statement.
Before the Pentagon's warning, Dutton had moved up publication to Sept. 4 from Sept. 11, saying that it was "important to put 'No Easy Day' on sale and let the book speak for itself."
