Death Of Green Beret Launches Probe Of Seal Team 6 Which Took Out Bin Laden

A criminal investigation into the death of a Green Beret last June has prompted a broad investigation of SEAL Team 6 - the unit which reportedly took out Osama Bin Laden, reports a military official and two others briefed on the case.

The investigation was ignited following the death of Army Staff Sgt. Logan J. Melgar, who died after allegedly being "choked out" by SEAL Team 6 operator Anthony DeDolph as fellow SEAL Adam Matthews watched, the Intercept reported. The two SEALs are suspected of embezzling cash from operational funds meant for informants in Bamako, Mali.

DeDolph and Matthews brought Melgar, with whom they had shared embassy housing, to a medical clinic in the early-morning hours of June 4 last year. Melgar was unconscious and not breathing. The two SEALs claimed they had found Melgar in that condition and tried to resuscitate him with an emergency tracheotomy. Melgar was pronounced dead at the clinic.

Much of the early stage of the investigation was spent unwinding the two SEALs’s conflicting statements about how Melgar died. -The Intercept

At first, the SEALs told investigators that Melgar had been intoxicated when they "found him unconscious and not breathing," however a medical examiner determined that Melgar had no alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of his death, and concluded that the Green Beret died as a result of "homicide by asphyxiation" - specifically, strangulation. 

According to witnesses who have seen the medical examiner's report, Melgar's throat and upper torso appeared to have been mutilated in a botched tracheotomy performed by DeDolph - a SEAL medic. 

The SEALs then changed their story, telling military officials that DeDolph - a former professional MMA fighter, had "accidentally choked Melgar during a late-night sparring match in their shared apartment," according to The Intercept

That story was dispelled when Melgar's wife told investigators that her husband did not participate in MMA or otherwise spar recreationally - causing the SEALs to change their story yet again, according to two sources. 

DeDolph and Matthews told investigators that tension between them and Melgar had been building for weeks, and they ended up in a physical confrontation. The cause of that fight is now at the heart of the case.

A longtime Special Operations consultant who has been briefed on the investigation said Melgar had discovered that the SEALs were stealing cash from the informants fund and told them he was going to report their activity. -The Intercept

According to witnesses, Melgar had been with the SEALs earlier in the evening of June 4, returning to their shared apartment to make a video call to his wife - where he reportedly told her that the SEALs asked him to participate in something that he refused. Melgar did not describe exactly what the SEALs wanted him to do, however a few hours later, Melgar was dead

The SEALs have denied stealing money from the informant cash allowance - instead blaming Melgar for the theft, and insisting that they had confronted the Green Beret

Cash allowances for the payment of informants typically ranges from $20,000 to $60,000 - and often requires "little more than a handwritten receipt." Former SEAL Team 6 members say that skimming by members of the unit was common.

The system is ripe for abuse,” said one former SEAL Team 6 leader. “We knew this money wasn’t being tracked, and guys were stuffing their pockets.”

Element of surprise has been lost and the dirty little secret is they are outnumbered without illegals/extended family (approximately the size of a small corporation) voting.  You'll never get the guns now.  Every country on earth is watching the USA take down the force which reamed their nation, theft of resources and heroes.  Internet has been a great help in getting the word out.  It is easy to digest, it makes sense, and the money trail confirms who the puppets and who the puppet masters are.  Cult of thieves, band of inbred gypsies who steal identities and act the part like masters and accomplished liars.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah........large number of warrants, indictments, trials, hangings, and the world will sing and hold hands and ride unicorns over rainbows.........

 

Wake the fuck up and get real...........the only way this is going to happen is when WE THE PEOPLE stand up and drag these pedos and traitors to the nearest tree and put a hemp rope around their necks, gut them, cut them into four pieces, and scatter their body part to the four corners of this country.

 

When I see that, then, I might get optimistic and jump on your unicorn.

Not really, I think they would have been about the same. Both would have sucked MIC cock, both would have been warmongers (and in case anyone doesn't know, the shit in Syria with us supporting terrorists is continuing), both would have went crazy with deficit spending, and both would have catered to the financial sector. Maybe... just MAYBE... the only difference is the second amendment, but the Reps won't let either one trample on the second amendment, so it's a moot point.

You are talking about the US DoJ (US Department of Corruption, Injustice & Persecution), right? The US DoJ (US Department of Corruption, Injustice & Persecution) that utterly failed to prosecute the FBI (Feral Bureau of Weasels) Weasels for:

• thousands of instances of perjured court testimony that sent hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans to prison;

• the cold-blooded murders at Ruby Ridge;

• the cold-blooded murders of the Branch Davidians at Waco;

• the murder of Lavoy Finicum at the Oregon Wildlife Refuge;

• the attempted murders of the Bundy's at the Bundy Ranch;

• the persecution of the Bundy's by Feral persecutors in US Feral court;

• the ongoing coup d'etat against President Donald J. Trump;

• etc., etc., etc.

 

That US DoJ (US Department of Corruption, Injustice & Persecution)?

When seals start killing seals, you've got a serious problem, a VERY serious problem! When "Espirit de Corps" dies in the military, you're done. Note this wasn't a fragging issue, this was serious corruption, leading to murder while trying to avoid disclosure. When you fight unjust and immoral wars, this is what you get. I'm willing to bet serious coin the entire military is infested, infected, and seriously gangrened by festering corruption.

Well, did anybody realizes that Seal Team 6 may be a complete made-up story? If the Bin Laden assasination mission was a made-up story then the team itself may be also. Maybe all are fake, crisis actors which, if looked around may be still playing various roles now. It would be stupid to wipe 6 elite soldiers when they can be of way better use alive.

Doesn't matter if they were real or it was a psyopp - either way the Seals as a whole kept their mouths shut about it. They buddies murdered in a set up downing of their helicopter - the Seals shut up and allowed it -- if they were crisis actors and not Seals - same thing the Seals shut up and allowed it.

The Seals will not help the citizens of the US unless directly ordered to do a task, I would assert they will harm US citizens who have been "labeled" when ordered to and will shut up if they see citizen groups murdered.

Yeah probably not, but 'Operation Extortion 17' closed a lot of mouths forever.
