Navy Investigating 2 SEAL Team 6 Members Over Green Beret's Death

Tyler Durden's picture

Many questions about the circumstances surrounding the death of Sergeant La David Johnson remain unanswered, but in a surprising Sunday-afternoon bombshell, the New York Times reported that Navy criminal authorities are investigating whether two members of the Navy’s elite Seal Team 6 strangled to death an Army Green beret on assignment in Mali in June.

The report – which comes completely out of the blue considering Melger’s death wasn’t widely reported when it happened – appears poised to compete with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s purported indictments for space in the coming week’s crowded news cycle.

Staff Sgt. Logan J Melgar, a 34-year-old veteran of two deployments to Afghanistan, was found dead on June 4 in the embassy housing he shared in the Malian capital, Bamako, with several other Special Operations forces assigned to the West African nation to help with training and counterterrorism missions.

 

The soldier’s superiors in Stuttgart, Germany, almost immediately suspected foul play, and dispatched an investigating officer to the scene within 24 hour, military officials said. Agents from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command spent months on the case before handing it off last month to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

 

No one has been charged in Sergeant Melgar’s death, which the military medical examiner ruled to be a homicide – strangulation, according to the autopsy results. The two Navy SEALs, who have not been identified, were flown out of Mali soon after the episode and were placed on administrative leave.

The two SEALs, who were not named, were reportedly housemates of Melgar. Neither the Army nor the military’s Africa Command issued a statement about Sergeant Melgar’s death, even after investigators changed their characterization of the SEALs suspected involvement from “witness” to “persons of interest,” meaning they were trying to determine what the commandos knew about the crime and if they were involved.

The uncertainty has left soldiers in the tight-knit Green Beret community in a state of suspicion as investigators explored whether the killing might’ve been a household dispute gone horribly awry – or whether Melgar stumbled on to some illicit activity and was killed to prevent him from informing on his peers.

While the Times’ report certainly leaves more questions and answers, one thing is clear: The investigation isn’t connected to the deaths of Johnson and three other green berets earlier this month in Niger.

Actually, life at sea isn't really that bad. Time on dry land, dealing with ass-hats is usually worse.

Good luck with this, we can't even get justice for Pat Tillman

Pat Tillman (RIP) found out about the opium racket.

He was horrified to see Marines were guarding the Afghani opium poppies that are harvested and processed for transfer to America.

He knew that these vile plants meant death for thousands of Americans and destruction of their families.

He intended to expose the racket but the Swamp dwellers got to him first and had him murdered.

What a disgrace on the Special Forces.

Looks like Sgt Melgar found out something that he wasnt supposed to know...like an unsavory "side business" that unidentified -as of yet- actors in the deep state apparatus were running. Perhaps it was those filthy Clinton Foundation associates, Mueller and Rosenstein.

In any event, someone knows. Perhaps these scumbag "hero" SEALS (arent they all?) will chomp down on their cyanide capsuls to prevent themselves from disclosing who their real employers are.  I doubt it.  After all, the days of heros have been over for many years now.  Now all we have is self-serving murderers and mercenaries.

These are just the kind of go-getters that we need in the service! Too bad we have to compete with "The Kraft" for their services.

and it was revealed that a seal team assassins are who took out fmr CIA DCI William Colby in 1996.

supposedly they were just doing their hit, nothing personal, you know - they didn't even know "who" it was they were murdering.

Yes, and you never know what Special forces are capable of. They have extensive short-bus training, after all.

The victim was Special Forces. The US Army unit aka Green Berets.

The persons of interest are Navy SEALS.

Collectively, along with Rangers and Recon Marines, known as Special Operations.

Check out an image of Staff SGT Melgar.
