WASHINGTON (AP) A senior defense official says seven members of the secretive Navy SEAL Team 6, including one involved in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, have been punished for allegedly disclosing classified information.

How do you know it was article 32?
Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Truth be told, we would expect courts martial for disclosing Secret, let alone SCI information.
We don’t know the full nature of the charge or the truth of what happened.
It's just some NJP and pretty light.
Yahoo is saying it is "classified," but nbc is saying it is not clear what if any information was released.......
These are the same people (yahoo et al) that don't know the difference between an AK47, M1 Garand, and a banana. It could be something like FOUO, or straight unclass manuals that can be purchased from Amazon. I wonder if it is silliness like making it look realistic in tactical formation/room clearing or how you would set your kit up etc.
The NBC story said it was to make an example to stop the high profile products being released. I wouldn't be surprised if it was NJP for an Article 92 (Failure to Obey an Order) which would be "Don't Talk About Fight Club."
If these guys truly revealed anything classified or of substance; I imagine they would go down a lot harder than this.
and he expects them to protect his ass when he is on holiday ? Take a long beer break boys ....
The official, who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity...
Is this what's known as "irony?"
