Sailor With Top-Secret Clearance Sold Stolen Files to Undercover Agent

December 6, 2010

(ChattahBox US News)—As the Pentagon is tightening up on access to secret files by low level military personnel after the WikiLeaks debacle, a naval petty officer got his hands on dozens of classified documents that he sold to a foreign government. But, surprise– the representative from the unnamed foreign government was an undercover FBI agent. You know the economy is bad though, when the FBI can only manage to come up with $2,000 for sensitive military secrets. That’s how much the sailor, petty officer Bryan Minkyu Martin, 22, was paid.

ABC News reports:

“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.”

Really though, how bright is this guy? Did he really think over 50 classified military documents were only worth $2,000?
