7 Navy SEALs Punished for Leaking Classified Info to Video Game Maker
6 months ago
Members of Navy SEAL team 6 will have to forfeit pay
Electronic Arts "Medal of Honor Warfighter" is a very realistic video game; apparently a little too realistic for the Navy SEALs.
NBC News reports that seven members of the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, including one involved in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, will have to forfeit part of their pay for two months because they disclosed classified information to the makers of "Medal of Honor."

Each of the seven received a letter of reprimand. Officials did not reveal exactly what secrets they leaked to Electronic Arts, but the deputy commander of naval special warfare, Rear Adm. Garry Bonelli, said the move was intended to make an example of the SEALs after other leaks.
