A Navy intelligence specialist stationed at Fort Bragg is under investigation for espionage after he allegedly sold top secret documents to an undercover FBI agent posing as a foreign intelligence officer, according to a search warrant filed in federal court on Friday.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating Bryan Minkyu Martin, of the Naval Reserve, after several staged buys of intelligence at two Spring Lake hotels.
A search of public records filed in an online federal court database indicated Martin had not yet been charged in connection with the case.
According to the search warrant, filed by Special Agent Richard Puryear with NCIS, Martin enlisted in the Navy on Nov. 30, 2006, and completed basic training on July 20, 2007. He received a top secret clearance on Sept. 20, 2007, and was subsequently stationed with the Navy Reserve unit Defense Intelligence Agency, according to the warrant.
He was assigned to the Joint Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg on Sept. 16 of this year.
Two months later, on Nov. 15, Martin met an undercover FBI agent in the lobby of the Hampton Inn on Bragg Boulevard in Spring Lake, according to the warrant. The special agent, posing as a foreign intelligence officer, brought Martin to his room, where Martin discussed his access to military computer networks and classified networks, according to the warrant.
Martin also told the agent that he was seeking "long-term financial reimbursement," and that he could be very valuable over a 15- or 20-year career, which he expected would take him to the Defense Intelligence Agency, the warrant says.
Martin offered to bring the agents two documents at their next meeting and accepted $500 in cash from the agent, according to the warrant.
At a meeting the next day at the same hotel, Martin produced two documents - one labelled "secret" and the other "top secret" and accepted $1,500 in cash, the warrant alleges. He agreed to meet the agent again on Nov. 19, when he produced 51 pages of secret and top secret documents, according to the warrant. He was paid another $1,500, according to the warrant.
Martin also failed to report the contacts to any member of his chain of command, according to the warrant.
The warrant authorized NCIS agents to search the room Martin was using on base, Room 315 at the Landmark Inn on Fort Bragg and his 2009 gold Nissan Altima. It does not address how Martin came under suspicion or how he came into contact with the undercover FBI agent.
Martin's status with the Navy wasn't immediately known.

First thing I thought when I read the headline was "Navy... at Bragg? Must be JSOC." I'm sad to see I was right.

If what is represented in the article is true, the accused could have done enormous damage to U.S. national security with the placement and access he would have had over his career.

I wonder what foreign intel service he thought he was dealing with.

Just send him to that special part of Bragg for some "live fire" exercises... Training accidents do happen after all.

I'm generally opposed to most violence but ...considering the damage that could have been done don't you think a quick death like shooting is really too soft? How about poisoning that would cause slow dissolve of the skin and organs? Might take months...

No, Im of the opinion of Irish. Make an example of the treasonous bastard in the town square at high noon. That sort of justice. Severe and swift.

You all know I would load the ammunition load the weapon and pull the trigger. Now lets look at the system, where are we and where are we going. Doesn't anybody want to fix this thing? There is a systemic problem with handling this informataion when everybody can read a document and the person needing information in the field is still waiting for the exlax to take effect and shove some intel their way. There are ways to handle this problem through the intelligence community and I have to believe the problem lies with the same community. I hear the NCO's are to busy and turn these tasks over to E-2, and E3's. Lets evaluate how that is working and I haven't tracked it down yet but my contact says this Sailor is possibly on his first enlistment.
Lets quit talking about the shit head that stole and figure a way to stop it in the future and if that means executing a couple I am all for it.
I know I stepped on toes with this write up but if I am wrong I am sure you will be able to correct me.
Respectfully,
Bill

Well the good news is they got the guy before he could do serious damage.

What is really scary, if this article is accurate, is the guys desire to be a traitor for his whole career for his own greed. How do you live with yourself with that kind of attitude? Hope that 3k is worth your freedom for the rest of your life.

I like what Manolito said and the intelligence field is going to have to make some changes in the physical security of documents.

Ok.... if we skinned him alive, rubbed him in salt and let him dry in the sun for a bit.... let him heal, and then did it again a few times.... then tried to make him a bit taller on the rack, without fully separating any connections, then skinned and salted him again, drying nicely in the sun in close proximity to a fire ant nest for a day or two, let him heal again, then just practice faciotomies on him, rubbed with sewage, allow to fester and place say, 200 scarab beetles nearby.... that could be drawn out for nearly 2 years, under proper supervision and medical care.... and serve as a warning to others who might be thinking about treason.

just a few thoughts... and make it a PPV charged daily or weekly, with the profits going to the VA or Wounded Warriors.

What could we be doing wrong? How are we (e.g. the clearance process and their SNCOs) not identifying these dipshits before they get their access and while they have access? I'm not trying to take the blame for THEIR actions but we have programs, polices, etc in place to deter this type of BS...don't we?https://shadowspear.com/vb/members/lindy.2010/
