Matt Bissonnette Outed As ‘No Easy Day’ Book Pseudo Author Mark Owen
Mark Owen’s real name is Matt Bissonnette according to FOX News and AP.
It was revealed that the author who is using the pseudonym Mark Owen to publish the book called “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden” is a retired military personal named Matt Bissonnette who was a member of Navy Seal Team 6.
On May 2, 2011, Navy Seal Team 6 landed in Abbottabad, Pakistan and after heavy gun fire and a helicopter crash they eventually killed Osama Bin Laden.
Mark Owen aka Matt Bissonnette is said to be a 36-year-old man from Wrangell, Alaska who decided to write the book in order to give a personal account on one America’s greatest military operations.
Matt Bissonnette who also rescued kidnapped Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates in 2009 is hoping that the book will inspire young people to join the military.
Additionally Mr. Mark Owen plans to shed some light on his 5 friends who sacrificed many things to make the mission a success yet remained nameless heroes.
However if it is discovered that Matt Bissonnette used information that can compromise national security, he will be prosecuted and can face some serious time in prison according to Defense Department spokesman Lt. Col. James Gregory who was not able to vet the documents used in the book.
“No Easy Day” will be released via Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA) on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
