Another Pentagon Security Leak; Sailor Allegedly Sold Secrets
In the same week the Pentagon said it was cracking down on access to government secrets, a low-level Navy clerk with top-secret clearance to Afghan war intelligence sold classified documents and offered access to the Pentagon's most sensitive computer networks, according to a search warrant filed last week in federal court by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.
The sailor, petty officer Bryan Minkyu Martin, was taken into custody at Ft. Bragg in North Carolina but has not yet been charged, according to a spokesperson for the investigative service.
According to the affidavit, Martin sold 51 pages of "secret" and "top secret" documents to an FBI undercover agent posing as a representative of an unnamed foreign government.
He was paid $2,000 for the documents, according to the affidavit.
