"Medal of Honor: Warfighter"  (Source: itechbook.net)
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

It wasn't 51% to 45%. It was 51% to 48%.

Fun facts.

Romney got 3 million less votes than McCain in 08.
Obama got 9 million less votes than in 08.

Who do I think those missing voters were? Mostly people in their 20s who voted for Obama's "hope and change" and were severally disappointed but didn't like Romney either.

Funny thing is if more liberals voted for conservatives, then we'd live in a nation where they could institute their utopias at the state level where they live. Then the rest of us would get to watch them collapse the way Europe, the Soviet Union, and California have.

Yea the 45% was a typo, but alas no edit button.

The only thing the close margin shows is that this country is as split down middle now as it was at the time Lincoln took office. Only this time the divide isn't so much north versus south, but urban verses rural. Just watching the returns from Ohio showed that Obama won by carrying the cities while Romney carried the rest of the state.

An interesting thing I saw on the news this evening was just how many new regulations are going to go into effect at the first of the year. They want to put one in effect that will require all cars to have a backup camera. I know many will say "oh that's a great idea" but how many of those have already gone out and bought an after market backup camera and installed it in their vehicle? Some regulations are good, but to just pile more on when the economy is struggling is not so good. Compliance with regulations is not free, I have seen both sides of the equation on that myself. I work in an environmental testing laboratory where we analyze samples for clients needing to comply with ever changing regulations, and each new analysis costs more for that client to have done, because it costs us money to perform them and we can not pass them along for free or we go out of business. If we can't keep the price down then the client may have to cut workers to stay profitable, or if we may lose money we may have to cut workers to stay competitive, either of which is not good for the current economy.
