Seven members of an elite U.S. Navy SEAL team, including one who participated in the raid that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, have been reprimanded for disclosing classified material while helping produce a videogame. All seven of the special operations forces who were punished were members of the elite SEAL Team Six. The seven worked for two days and were paid consultants on the videogame. All seven were punished in an administrative proceeding for disclosing classified information and misusing command gear while working with the gamemakers, who advertise that the videogame is more accurate because of the help they had from special operations forces. The seven each received a punitive letter of reprimand and were docked half pay for two months according to Navy officials
