"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.

RE: No - UCMJ Article 92 isn't about classified

Downrated or not...

I'm going to say this is why I'm in favor of eugenics.... So people like Jian would never be born.

Do you know how psychopathic and conspiracy theory driven the majority of what you typed sounds? Do you know how absurdly partisan it is?

I honestly believe, if you're IQ isn't above 130, you shouldn't be born into this world. We don't have room for your tainted genetic material anymore. Ignorant mouth breathers....

PS: Your family values are different from mine. Your religious values are different from mine. If you continue to try and push those values in the manner you've been pushing them, don't be upset when we "liberals" exercise our gun rights you espouse as being so wholly positive to shoot the lot of, out of "self defense" while "standing our ground" on moral issues. Just sayin... you push something too hard, eventually it snaps. And personally, I wouldn't blink an eye if the lot of you went out in a blaze of glory against the military you so love. It would be irony at its finest. So keep up those hyper extremist thoughts... oh please do, and act on them as soon as possible! Get your militias and come attack our "Nazi, Muslim, fascist, terrorist, Maoist, communist, black President" with all your might!

In 50-100 years, people like you won't exist anymore. You'll be bred out of our genetic pool as the disease you are. Oh, don't like my morals? TOO BAD, this is the US, and I can have my cake and eat it too.

That's the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. The average IQ will always be 100. By your own standards you probably shouldn't have been born.
