#1 I haven't seen the movie but usually I don't think much of Hollywood's version of anything. Read the book "No Easy Day" and found it an interesting read.

I don't know much about the legalities of writing the book but there really didn't seem to be anything that rose to the level of violating national security--it seemed to be fairly sanitized and as the book said everything was in open sources.

Fox is credited (maybe discredited would be more appropriate) for "outing" the author. If true, that should not have been done. It also seems like there are a lot of people trying to claim to be the equivalent of the "trigger pullers" after the mission such as "Jen" and the Champ.

#3 JohnQC; she doesn't claim to be a trigger puller but she does seem to think that she isn't getting proper credit for her work and that others are getting credit for what she did even as they initially resisted her theory's.
