It was Nov. 15 when Navy Intelligence Specialist 3rd Class Bryan Minkyu Martin met with what he thought was a foreign agent in a room at the Hampton Inn. The greedy traitor was eager to sell out his country for greenbacks and pocketed $500 in cash after his initial meeting.
The 22 year-old punk, assigned to Fort Bragg, N.C., didn't know that he had been dealing with an undercover FBI agent.
Twice more, Martin sold secret and top-secret papers for a total of $3500. According to investigators, he even bragged his career aim was to join the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and steal more stuff for sale. "In the 15-20 years I could spend in the military, I bet I could come up with lots of good stuff," the enlisted man bragged.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned none of the documents Martin "sold" to a "foreign agent" were actually seen by any enemies of the United States. "There was no leak of classified or top secret material," an informed source said.
At present, Martin is locked up in the Navy Brig at Norfolk, Va. He faces charges of espionage, which could earn him up to life imprisonment. If we had our way, scum like Martin would get the DEATH PENALTY.
The young sailor enlisted in 2006 and received a TOP-SECRET clearance the following year.
FBI agents swarmed all over Martin's home in Mexico, New York, seizing a digital camera, audio tapes, phone records and other papers. Also grabbed up from Martin's hotel room at the Landmark Inn on Fort Bragg was a laptop computer and other material.
