MoH SEAL Consultants Reprimanded

So many military shooters tout the credentials of their advisors there's a tendency to assume this is hype, but NBC News has word that the SEALs who participated in the development of Medal of Honor have received letters of reprimand from the U.S. Navy, and have been docked half their pay for two months (thanks David). The latest installment in EA's shooter series takes pride in the contribution of "actual U.S. Tier 1 Operators," and the truth of this is borne out by this reprimand: "We do not tolerate deviations from the policies that govern who we are and what we do as Sailors in the United States Navy," says a written statement from Deputy Commander of Naval Special Warfare, Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli. "The non-judicial punishment decisions made today send a clear message throughout our Force that we are and will be held to a high standard of accountability."

You can't be an ethically-minded person and do what Manning did. Nor can you apologize or justify it; it was just plain wrong. He didn't release them because he had some great concern for some great evil being perpetuated; he released them because he was disgruntled or had some anti-American feeling that took hold. He didnt have any knolwege that anything wrong was going on, or else I'm sure he would've released the damning documents themselves (which don't exist), rather than entire databases full of classified information. There are channels in place for whistleblowers to expose misconduct in the military, including classified channels which do not reveal our secrets to adversaries.

Regardless, releasing classified documents jeopardizes the mission by revealing our tactics, sources, future operations, the extent of our intelligence, our capabilities, etc. I guess if you think it's cool to put US military operations at risk, or put Coalition lives at greater risk, you can turn Manning into a folk hero. You'd have to hold a sincere belief that al Qaeda and the Taliban remnant are morally superior to US/NATO forces to do so, however.

As for the political side of your argument, I could not be less interested in discussing it with you. I'm neither Democrat nor Republican, and it's foolish to think that misconduct occurs on just one side of the aisle.
