“We’ve done this before with No Easy Day but declined on this story because it’s getting harder to navigate the DOD non-approval process, it’s just too risky these days” -Senior Penguin Publishing PR Representative.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA - A major publisher of Navy SEAL memoirs reported today that a U.S. retaliation strike is “imminent” in Libya. Following the news stories of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Random Day spokesman Bill Klein stated that several of their company’s clients called with a preliminary manuscript for possible books.
“The first to contact us was Steve Faulkner,” Klein said. “He is with DEVGRU… you know, the SEAL Team Six guys. Anyway, he called us up late at night and said he wanted to present a new book idea for his autobiography, which would include several chapters on raids against terrorist camps in the Libyan desert.”
Klein said the conversation was cut short because Faulkner stated that he would be leaving the next morning and would be gone for awhile, possibly for several weeks. “OPSEC is so important to these guys,” said Klein, “so usually when a world event happens and they have to go respond, they’ll have to quickly send us a manuscript for their next book idea before they get on a plane to go and do an op.”
When Klein was asked about his usage of military slang, he was more than happy to answer.
“These operators and I have become so tight over the past several years. What, with all that’s been going on and the slew of book ideas and manuscripts we’ve been reviewing, I’ve even opened up a satellite office in Virginia Beach just to handle all the material coming out of Dam Neck and Little Creek alone. The public affairs office over at SPECWAR and I have developed a really good relationship, too.
