Navy Seals revealed secrets for video game

SEVEN members of the secret Navy Seal Team 6, including one involved in the mission to get Osama bin Laden, have been punished for disclosing classified information, senior Navy officials revealed.

Four other Seals are under investigation.

They are alleged to have divulged classified information to the maker of a video game called Medal Of Honor: Warfighter.

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, acknowledged nonjudicial punishments had been handed out.
