Medal Of Honor: Warfighter Navy SEALs disciplined for role with video game

EA and Danger Close had actual U.S Navy SEALs serve as consultants on Medal of Honor: Warfighter and because of that 7 Seals have been punished, so far all received letters of reprimand which would kill their chances for promotion. They also had half their pay taken away for two months.

CBS news reported last night, Seven members of SEAL Team Six who are currently in active duty, for two days this spring and summer the SEALs worked as paid consultants on the recently released game Medal of Honor: Warfighter, it is not known how much they were paid for. Four other members of the team who have then transferred to another unit are still under investigation. “The game does not recreate the bin Laden raid, but it does portray realistic missions, such as an attack on a pirates’ den in Somalia. It was produced by Electronic Arts, which boasts that real commandos, both active duty and retired, help make its games as realistic as possible” CBS news

It is not clear what secrets the SEAL members gave but while serving consultants they used classified material.
