RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - "No Easy Day" hit stores today. Written by ex navy SEAL Matt Bissonette, the book retells the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden in graphic detail. The following passage contains graphic description:

"The point man's shots had entered the right side of his head. Blood and brains spilled out of the side of his skull. In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing."

Members of the intelligence community have been concerned for weeks about the content of the book. The Pentagon says it is looking into pressing charges, fearful of it disclosing classified parts of the mission. In the final chapter of the book, Bissonette says if his Commander in Chief is willing to talk about the operation, then he feels comfortable doing the same.
