AP sources: Navy SEALs punished for secrets breach
CBS reported this first. I guess the headline tries to make clear that AP is relying on its own sources, not simply repeating the CBS story.

AP sources: Navy SEALs punished for secrets breach

By ROBERT BURNS
AP National Security Writer

ASHINGTON (AP) -- Seven members of the secretive Navy SEAL Team 6, including one involved in the mission to get Osama bin Laden, have been punished for disclosing classified information, senior Navy officials said Thursday.

Four other SEALs are under investigation for similar alleged violations, one official said.

The SEALs are alleged to have divulged classified information to the maker of a video game called "Medal of Honor: Warfighter."

Each of the seven received a punitive letter of reprimand and a partial forfeiture of pay for two months. Those actions generally hinder a military member's career.

1. A former roommate was a Team 6 member
We also had a lot of Delta folks pass through our facility during training. Mostly meatheads. They were OK to get along with. Most were practical jokers.
My ex-roommate wanted to join the Agency but they threw him back because he was such a sleeze.

I came home one night and saw his door ajar. He was humping this waitress from a local redneck bar we used to frequent. She was a really sweet kid. Had Spina Bifida that caused her to walk doubled-over. I could see that she was having a Grand-Mal Seizure, but he didn't care, just interested in getting his rocks off. A real lowlife.
