Seven members of Navy Seal Team 6 have been disciplined for disclosing classified information. This includes one member who was involved in the mission to get Osama bin Laden.
Four other Seals are under investigation for similar alleged violations, according to an official. The classified information was given to Danger Close and Electronic Arts, makers of Medal of Honor Warfighter.
The seven received a letter of reprimand and will be docked pay for two months, actions that will likely impede their ability to be promoted in the U.S. military. “We do not tolerate deviations from the policies that govern who we are and what we do as sailors in the United States Navy,” said Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli.
The first specific complaint for the actions of the Seals was that they did not seek the permission of their command to take part in Medal of Honor Warfighter. The other issue was that they showed off some of their specially designed combat equipment unique to their unit, according to a senior military official.
