Fox News has been promoting a documentary to air next month revealing the identity of the Navy SEAL who fired the fatal shot into Osama Bin Laden.

But the Pentagon said in a statement issued to Business Insider, that anyone who participated in the 2011 operation that left the Al Qaeda leader dead was “still bound” by a “non-disclosure agreement to not discuss classified information, especially in a nationally televised interview.”



This seems to indicate the SEAL could face a criminal investigation for participating in the documentary.

The statement came from Navy Commander Amy Derrick-Frost, a Defense Department spokeswoman, who said the military had not confirmed that the person participating in the Fox News documentary was indeed the SEAL who fired the fatal shot at Bin Laden.
