Navy Disciplines SEALS for Op Sec Sell Out

Obviously, there’s more to this story than meets the eye. As CBS points out, the Navy is officially supporting pro-SEAL projects in Tinsel Town. They’re justifying “loaning” hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer assets to producers using the Top Gun defense (i.e, we’re creating recruiting films). The Army has released its own videogames to that very end. Perhaps Electronic Arts and their pet SEALS forgot to clear the Medal of Honor: Warfighter project with the appropriate credit mongers higher-up in the military food chain. Or maybe it’s a head fake; the alleged punishment is marketing FUD designed to make the game seem more realistic—so realistic the Navy will have to kill you if you play it. Either way, it’s a game people. It’s just a game.
