Pentagon Investigating the SEAL Who Shot Osama Following February's Esquire StoryS

The Navy SEAL made famous for shooting Osama bin Laden in the face and then complaining about US-government negligence in an Esquire article published earlier this month is now under Pentagon investigation, according to The Hill's defense blog DEFCON Hill.

Department of Defense spokesman Lt. Col. Steve Warren told reporters today that the DoD is "taking a look" into whether the Esquire article included any classified or sensitive information about Operation Neptune Spear, the code name for the 2011 strike on bin Laden's Pakistani compound.

Besides the Esquire investigation, the DoD is continuing its investigation into former SEAL Mark Bissonnette's book, No Easy Day, an unauthorized retelling of the bin Laden killing that may also contain classified or sensitive information.
