US Green Beret Was Killed After He Discovered Navy SEALs' Illicit Cash

Staff Sergeant Logan J. Melgar

Two members of the elite SEAL Team 6 are suspected of strangling an US Army Green Beret in June while they were in Mali on a secret assignment, according to The New York Times.

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

According to the Daily Beast sources, Melgar had discovered the two SEALs were pocketing some of the money from the fund that was used to pay informants in Mali. The SEALS offered to cut him in, but Melgar declined, these sources said.

It is unknown what specifically started the June 4 altercation at 5 AM but it escalated, resulting in Melgar first losing consciousness. Then he stopped breathing. The SEALs attempted to open an airway in Melgar’s throat. It is unknown whether Melgar died immediately. The SEALs and another Green Beret drove to a nearby French clinic seeking help. Melgar was dead when he arrived at the clinic. Asphyxiation was the cause of death.

The SEALs explained this by telling superiors that Melgar was drunk during hand-to-hand fighting exercises. They filed at least one operational report about the incident and possibly two. At least one of the reports included an account that Melgar was drunk. A former US Africa Command official who saw the autopsy report said no drugs or alcohol were found in Melgar’s system. At least one source believes he did not drink alcohol at all.

Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) investigation into Melgar’s death is still ongoing.

Just 34 years old when he died, Melgar, a Texan, was an Afghanistan veteran twice over. Melgar was a 2006 graduate of Texas Tech. He enlisted in 2012 and joined the Army as a Special Forces recruit. He graduated from the Special Forces Qualification course in 2016.

    Because the murder victim was Latino, a lighter sentence will be administered, and definately the death penalty will not even be considered. If it were the other way around, its the death penalty.
    Justice in America is NOT color blind.

      What the fuck are you talking about? Those who did this will be punished to the extreme. The people that get off easy are the rich ones and women. It doesn’t have anything to do with skin color.

    The NAVY Seals train a lot with both the UK SAS and SBS. SAS and SBS are scum of the earth and nothing but drug runners, murderers-for-hire, rapist and genociders of indigenous tribal peoples.
    Seals learned this behavior from the best on how to be the absolute worst possible.
    Humanity will not rest till trial’s are done for all the SAS criminals who support unelected dictators such as the UK Monarch and Saudi Arabia and Rothschild’s and Lucifer and the Faults Prophets.

    Many in the US military seems to have lost their moral compass. Reports last week are of circa 450 officers of the US Navy, Admirals included with other senior officers, who took bribes from a now jailed businessman for selling information about US naval ship deployments.

      fun fact if the British held on to that territory for 2 more years. Israel would not have existed.

      In all reality the zionsts were planning on overthrowing the British in that region. They had 9mm round factories underneath laundry mats ,holding secret drills and forming military command structures.

      But if a group of British soldiers were to uncover of those factories and managed to report them the shock would be unbelievable. here a group that the world had sympathy for (because ww2), were being given their own (i mean stolen) land, were going to be taken care of by the western powers. Were planning to rebel against the very people who giving them what they wanted (well at that time period) im sure the support for Israel would start drying up.

      I would love to see a movie of this alternate history were the British are supporting and training the Palestinians to fight Zionist insurgents.

      on a side note i do find it hard the believe that the Zionists could have defended themselves so well while also going the offensive when they are believed to be just refugees trying to settle in. they would have to have source of ammo and training as well as a battle plan. Because the British and french took the bulk of their military equipment with when they left.
