“My worry from the beginning is, you know, it’s a political season. BOP. Not be brought into the political arena, because this– this has nothing to do with politics.”

“We were less than five steps from getting to the top when I heard suppressed shots. This is a book about Sept. 11, and it needs to rest on Sept. BOP,” Owen writes of the May 2011 raid, according to the Huffington Post and The Associated Press, which also obtained a copy. officials, including that of White House spokesperson Jay Carney, that the SEALs had entered the room before bin Laden was shot, that one of bin Laden’s wives charged the SEALs and that bin Laden had “resisted” before he was killed, even if he was unarmed.

Dutton said Owen plans to donate a majority of the proceeds from his book to charities that help the families of fallen Navy SEALs.

“No Easy Day” does say that two women were in the room when bin Laden died, but they were wailing over his body when the SEALs entered, the AP reported.

White House national security spokesman Tommy Vietor declined to comment to The Associated Press on the discrepancies, but told the news organization, “As President Obama said on the night that justice was brought to Osama bin Laden, ‘We give thanks for the men who carried out this operation, for they exemplify the professionalism, patriotism and unparalleled courage of those who serve our country.’”

Copies of Owen’s book, leaked today to two news outlets, describe the gruesome scene when Osama bin Laden died and offer details that appear to contradict some of the “official” account, according to the news organizations that obtained copies of the book.

“And I’m pretty sure, to a man, we all said, ‘Yes, absolutely,’” said Owen in excerpts of the interview broadcast tonight on “CBS Evening News With Scott Pelly.” CBS said that in addition to the pseudonym, Owen was appearing in disguise for their interview. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless.”

In the book, the author said he was right behind the “point man” who first shot bin Laden after the al Qaeda leader poked his head out of a doorway on one of the upper floors of the complex in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Owen left the service in April, according to military records provided to ABC News.

Reports on the leaked copies came just hours after the book’s publisher, Dutton, announced it was moving up the publishing date to Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. “I couldn’t tell from my position if the rounds hit the target or not. 4 from its original intended release on the anniversary of the Sept. The move came after the book became the center of widespread controversy over possible national security breaches.

“Blood and brains spilled out of the side of his skull,” a passage in the book says, according to The Huffington Post.

It wasn’t until several SEAL Team Six members entered the room that Owen learned some of the first shots hit their mark and that Osama bin Laden was the man bleeding and twitching on the ground with an apparent shot to the head. At the time, it wasn’t immediately clear if those shots had connected.. This book is not political whatsoever,” Owen told CBS. A Department of Defense spokesperson said Monday the department had received a copy of the manuscript and had begun reviewing it for potential security issues.

The ex-team member, who recently wrote a book about the mission called “No Easy Day” under the pseudonym Mark Owen, said in a CBS News’ “60 Minutes” interview that his team practiced repeatedly for the mission in a mock-up replica of bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound and after a practice run in front of what Owen called “VIPs,” top Navy officials asked each member of the team if they were ready.

Owen also said he was aware the book could be used as a political pawn near the end of a tight presidential election.

A former member of America’s elite and secretive SEAL Team Six stepped out of the shadows — but still apparently in disguise — to make his first public appearance to talk about the historic raid that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Owen also reportedly writes that the SEALs were told in a pre-raid briefing the mission was not an assassination and that bin Laden should be detained should he pose no threat.

The reported account appears to differ from earlier versions of the raid given by U.S. “You know, if these — crazies on either side of the aisle want to make it political, shame on them. Still, Owen and another SEAL pointed their laser sights at his chest and “fired several rounds. The man disappeared into the room.”

Officials from the White House to the Department of Defense to the CIA have said they were unaware of the book and had not reviewed it for possible leaks at the time of the first media reports Get More Info

Horse Racing Books, eBooks, and How to Improve Your Handicapping

My advice is to read as many of those books as you can and at the end of each book, write down what you think the key points were that the author tried to make.  It may all wind up just being about 5 sentences, believe it or not.  But those 5 key points added to the points from the next book you read and then the next will begin to be a handicapping method of your own.  While no single author can make you profitable, putting the top writers together and boiling it all down to a method you can understand and stick with, will certainly put you on the right track.

Without a source of past performances or other handicapping material, all the knowledge of horse racing in the world won’t do you any good.  On the other hand, if you have good past performances and speed sheets and a ton of information, it won’t do you any good unless you know how to use that information.

The old saying, knowledge is power is certainly true and no where is it more obvious than at the race track.  Trying to handicap horse races and make money off your bets is difficult enough, but imagine trying it without good information?  So maybe it isn’t just knowledge that is power, but information is also power, in fact, the best way to say it might be that information converted into knowledge is power.

So the key to success betting horses is to read some good books by authors who are known for their expertise and then to use the information they recommend.  Several top authors come to mind whenever you talk about handicapping.  Their books sell well so you would think that the people who read them would be winning, but that isn’t always the case, because, like I said, it depends upon how you use their information.

Good horse racing books and eBooks about horse racing handicapping teach you how to take that information and use it to find good priced winners.  You still have to figure out how to do that, however.  No book is going to automatically make you a winner.  It would be nice if they could, but then again, every person who read a book would be a winner and soon there would be no losers.  That wouldn’t work.

And they’re worse app other things. The kid who is playing the club, year-round, as opposed to someone of my vintage. Find the best fit for your unique genome. You and i, europeans, have longer torsos. From kenya, we’re used to thinking of all kenyans being great runners. We could spend hours on it. That’s better for swimming. And a lot of people watching at home, the idea of the specialized athlete. What did you find makes the best athlete? There’s some evidence in certain parts, gymnastics. And look at the mid teen years. It’s a fascinating book. And one thing they have their ancestry, low latitude. Golf. When I visited. That’s an evolutionary adaptation for cooling.
