Uh oh, it looks like the US Navy are not happy with some of their elite special forces unit known as the SEALS due to 7 members who participated in two days consulting for the development of the new Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

According to CBS news the members are currently under investigation by the Navy’s military police for serving as paid consultants on EA’s latest Warfigher.  It has been reported that the Navy SEALs might have used classified material while helping with the game, more specifically raids that could have elements of the Bin Laden mission.

Six of the consultants are still on active duty although four of them have since transferred out of the unit, but should still adhere to the unwritten rule of "SEALs are silent warriors who shun the spotlight.". It has also been reported that all seven of the soldiers have received written letter from the military police informing them that they are under investigation and also docked two months wages.

When EA was contacted about the involvement of the SEALs in the development of Warfighter the games company said "We do not know if the veterans who consulted on the game were in contact with the Department of Defense."
