A new book based on a series of interviews with the Navy SEALs involved in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden claims to directly contradict the Obama administration's depiction of the operation, The Washington Examinerreported Friday.

SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama bin Laden, by former SEAL commander Chuck Pfarrer, claims to tell the true story of the successful raid to kill the terror chief on May 2.

According to a press release, the book takes "readers on the helicopter flight over the wall that leads deep into the terrorist lair and describing what it looked, sounded and smelled like as the bullets flew."

The book also takes issue with the Obama administration's characterization of the mission.

"In a hasty effort to claim victory and make political haste, administration aides changed their stories several times," the release said. "Their leaks made SEAL Team Six look ineffective and clumsy."

The book claims the SEALs landed on the roof of bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, rather than on the ground as the administration has stated. Pfarrer also writes that it was within 90 seconds of the beginning of the raid that bin Laden was killed, not after an extended firefight.

The 240-page book will be released on Nov. 8 by St. Martin's Press.

Pfarrer has written one previous work of nonfiction, three novels, and several produced screenplays, most notably the 1997 box office hit The Jackal starring Bruce Willis and Richard Gere.
