What should Navy Lt. Michael Murphy have done?

Wow. This is a difficult question. I guess you would have to take in Murphy's moral code. Does the shepard see him and his men? How do we know that their "cover is blown"? I suppose you could say that, by killing one shepard he is saving three lives, but the death would be completely pointless if they aren't actually noticed. It's interesting that this article was posted on a military website, one where recruitment is a motive. Does this sort of ethical situation seem like an enticement or turn-off to potential recruits?
