Spec-Ops Command: SEAL raid book ‘a lie’

The AP reports that U.S. Special Operations Command says Chuck Pfarrer’s book, “SEAL Target Geronimo” is a work of fiction.

“It’s just not true,” U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye said. “It’s not how it happened.”

Normally, the standard line for Public Affairs in this sort of media conundrum would be the reliable chestnut: “We can neither confirm nor deny any of the items in Mr. Pfarrer’s book.”

So why would there be any attempt (outside of political theater) to deviate from the playbook?
