Navy SEALs Punished for Consulting on Video Game 'Medal of Honor: Warfighter'

Seven Navy SEALs have been punished for revealing classified information to a video game maker. Senior military officials claim active duty SEALs, including one who was a member of the team that killed Usama bin Laden, violated orders when they consulted on the game 'Medal of Honor: Warfighter.'

Other former SEALs have expressed dismay over the public reprimand, calling the administration hypocritical. Filmmakers of the upcoming movie “Zero Dark Thirty” reportedly received special access to classified information about the bin Laden raid.

Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie experienced a similar situation when he was forced to retire after writing the book “Battle on the Home Front.” Today on Fox and Friends, Higbie said, “I think they use that as an avenue to punish people and I’d be curious to see what classified information they did divulge.”

He pointed out the hypocrisy, saying, “The administration leaked all kinds of information mere hours after the Usama bin Laden op; and our own admirals took taxpayer dollars and funded the movie ‘Act of Valor’ so we could do what, recruiting? It is definitely ‘do as I say, not as I do.’”
