WASHINGTON (AP) - Special operations chief Adm. Bill McRaven is warning he will take legal action against anyone under his command if they're found guilty of exposing sensitive information that could cause fellow forces harm.
In an email Thursday to special operations forces and obtained by The Associated Press, McRaven threatens to pursue "every option available to hold members accountable, including criminal prosecution."
The warning comes a day after a retired Navy commando revealed he's publishing a first-hand account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Pentagon officials say they have not been given a chance to review the book.
McRaven also took former special operators to task for "using their 'celebrity' status to advance their personal or professional agendas."
