SEALs killed a Green Beret over money? Not has been floating around like crazy...

via Daily Beast.
Logan Melgar hadn’t had a drink on June 4.

The Green Beret sergeant’s dry day became a key to unraveling the narrative spun by the elite Navy commandos whom military investigators now suspect killed him, officials familiar with the case said.

Melgar, a staff sergeant in the Army’s 3rd Special Forces Group, was specifically selected for an intelligence operation in the West African nation of Mali. He was well respected by the American Embassy staff and the partner forces there, a former U.S. Africa Command official said. But shortly before he died, Melgar told his wife that he had a bad feeling about two of his partners in that effort, both of whom were members of SEAL Team Six.

Not wanting to say much more, Melgar informed his wife, Michelle, that he’d tell her the full story when he got back home, according to an official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still ongoing.

Now those two Navy SEALs are under investigation for killing Melgar—an investigation, first reported by The New York Times, sending shockwaves throughout the special-operations community. Military experts were hard-pressed to think of another case where elite U.S. troops turned on one another.

This account is based on five members of the special-operations community who were not cleared to speak publicly. Representatives of both U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) declined comment for this story, as the Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) has an active investigation into Melgar’s death. NCIS would not comment beyond confirming the investigation is underway.

That's the run up.  The story itself is damning and completely believable.  The problem?  Cash has been floating around those countries we've been involved in for a long time.  Unaccountable cash.  Cash used for bribes, for favors.....the whole nine yards.

Much of that cash has gone missing and the Pentagon knows all about it.

And that's the dirty little secret.

Rumors have been floating around about a lot of evil shit happening.  Weapons of all types being smuggled both ways on military flights.  E-6's that turned into millionaires overnight. 

And SOCOM has had its hands all over it.

Am I making an accusation?  Hell no.  I want to live and I don't need SEAL Team 6, 4 or some juiced up Rangers showing up on my doorsteps, but the truth is out there.

This Green Beret was unfortunately too pure for his own good.  Most know to shut their mouths, look the other way and stay alive.

Eventually the deeds will be told but I don't expect justice to be done. It's war and shit happens. But follow this story gents.  A good man died, some good men lost their way and turned bad and in the end I blame (yeah you guessed it) leadership.  Endless war has consequences on the force and on the homeland.  The price we're gonna pay for 20 years war has only just begun.
