Navy SEALs punished for secrecy breach tied to video game

Seven members of the secretive U.S. Navy SEAL Team 6, including one involved in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, have been punished for disclosing classified information, senior navy officials said Thursday

Four other SEALs are under investigation for similar alleged violations, one official said.

They are alleged to have divulged classified information to the maker of a video game.

Each of the seven received a punitive letter of reprimand and a partial forfeiture of pay for two months. Those actions generally hinder a military member’s career.

The deputy commander of Naval Special Warfare Command, Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli, issued a statement acknowledging that nonjudicial punishments had been handed out for misconduct, but he did not offer any details.

"We do not tolerate deviations from the policies that govern who we are and what we do as sailors in the United States navy," Bonelli said. He alluded to the importance of honouring nondisclosure agreements that SEALs sign.

He said the punishments this week "send a clear message throughout our force that we are and will be held to a high standard of accountability."

Article Comment:

It’s funny how some individuals are punished while others get accolades for doing the same thing. The "White House" participated in the making of the assassinating bin Laden theatre we will soon be seeing on the big screen, (that is, for those who believe in the charade to begin with). "Secrets" were also revealed in order to make the movie "realistic" and "accurate". So either the bin Laden theatre was a fake and no secrets were revealed in reality, or...the President is guilty of endangering US forces for personal gain. You can’t have it both ways.
