EA: Medal Of Honour - A Navy SEAL consulted game. "CLOSE ENOUGH"
American video game developer Electronic Arts used consultants of real commandos to help make its game as realistic as possible, but the pentagon has decided seven of those consultants, members of SEAL Team Six gave too much away. CBS news broke the story, revealing seven SEALS including the one involved in the Bin Laden raid have been claimed for consulting on the game Medal Of Honour: War Fighter. It is not clear what details did the members of six SEALs gave away, but while serving as consultants for the game,they used classified material which had been given to them by the navy. Apart from CBS, the NAVY TIMES found that " An investigation found the SEALs were derelict in their duties by disclosing classified material and unauthorised use of official command gear...." Classified information reportedly came into the game which launched last month. THE VERGE says that they made a big mistake without taking permissions first. " The members of TEAM SIX have taken part in a number of similar high-profile public engagements without any problem. For example, SEALs consulted on Act Of Valor and two other upcoming Hollywood movies." All seven of the SEALs are still on active duty and the Pentagon is investigating on four more members who recently changed units.
