"Medal of Honor: Warfighter"  (Source:
They all received letters of reprimand and a cut of half their pay for two months

Seven U.S. Navy SEAL members are in hot water for participating in the making of the video game, "Medal of Honor: Warfighter."

Video game developer Electronic Arts (EA) recently paid seven active and retired U.S. Navy SEALs to help in the creation of "Medal of Honor: Warfighter" in order to make it as realistic as possible.

However, the Navy wasn't too pleased with this move. It said that their participation was a violation of Article 92, which basically states that members of the Navy SEALs cannot disclose classified material to anyone. The Navy believes that these members provided classified information to EA for the making of the game, but it is unclear what this classified information was.

Now, the seven SEALs are facing punishment, according to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). DOD said that a non-judicial punishment hearing was carried out on November 7 where the seven SEALs faced administrative proceedings. An NSW investigation is now being conducted to see if more members of the Navy were involved.

The seven Navy SEALs consist of two Senior Chief Special Operators and five Chief Special Operators, which all received letters of reprimand and a cut of half their pay for two months.

According to EA, they were unaware of whether the seven Navy SEALs asked the DOD for permission to participate first.

Back in 2010, EA's "Medal of Honor" was banned from military PXs globally because of multiplayer Taliban characters.

What, are you some kind of A-rab grammar police? Or a member of the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice - AKA Taliban brown shirts (also found in Iran, and now thanks to Barack Hussein, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, and Mali) who cut off women's noses, stoned to death, or shot them for showing a bit of epidermis or hair?

And "Talib" means student, and those fvckers are most definitely not students, they are "Taliban".

Taliban means "students". And silly Pashtuns, with their own pluralization... if you're going to borrow an Arabic word, at least borrow the Arabic plural Tullab....

I'm going to weigh in and say that Pashtu speakers are free to call the group Taliban with the "wrong" plural, and that English speakers are free to call a single member of the Taliban "a Taliban" with the wrong singular. Although "a Taliban" does sound weird to my ears.
