US SEALs told not to spill Osama raid secrets.....

WASHINGTON: The commander of US Navy SEALs has issued a stinging rebuke to troops who have broken the elite force's hallowed tradition of secrecy and humility by publishing memoirs and speaking to the media. Days after the Fox News network announced it would broadcast a documentary with a commando who claims to have shot Osama bin Laden, Rear Admiral Brian Losey, the head of Naval Special Warfare Command, wrote to his troops denouncing anyone who seeks fame or fortune by revealing mission details. 

"A critical tenet of our Ethos is 'I do not advertize the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions,'" Losey and the top enlisted sailor, Force Master Chief Michael Magaraci, wrote in the letter. 

"We do not abide wilful or selfish disregard for our core values in return for public notoriety and financial gain," said the letter dated October 31. The commander warned in the letter that "we will actively seek judicial consequence for members who wilfully violate the law" by revealing classified information.
