The former US Navy Seal, who has written a first-hand account of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, was willing to break 'the code of silence' because of 'bad blood' with his former SEAL Team 6, a new e-book written by other Special Operations veterans has revealed.

The e-book said the author, Matt Bissonnette, who wrote the book 'No Easy Day' under the pseudonym Mark Owen, was effectively pushed out of SEAL Team 6 after he expressed interest in leaving the Navy and starting a business last year.

According to the New York Times, upset at how he had been treated, Bissonnette thought of writing a book that he knew would upset his colleagues, the e-book authors said.
