Four elite U.S. Special Operations troops charged in the death of a Green Beret soldier in Mali plotted to record him being sexually assaulted as part of a plan to embarrass him through hazing, according to one of the accused service members.

Marine Staff Sgt. Kevin Maxwell said in a written stipulation of facts submitted for the case that the plan included bursting into Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar’s bedroom in the capital city of Bamako with a sledgehammer, choking him until he fell unconscious, tying him up and recording the sexual assault on video. The service members involved had just returned from a night of drinking, he said.

Those statements roughly match the testimony of Chief Special Warfare Operator Adam C. Matthews, a former member of the Navy’s SEAL Team 6, who pleaded guilty in the case last month.
...
The four service members charged in the case were joined in the room by a Malian security guard and a British man who had befriended the Americans, Maxwell told authorities. The security guard was to carry out the sexual assault, while the British national planned to record it on a cellphone, Maxwell wrote. Those accusations have not previously been disclosed.

Melgar, 34, was killed on June 4, 2017, in an attack that took place on his bed as Chief Special Warfare Operator Anthony DeDolph, another member of SEAL Team 6, applied a choke hold and the other service members attempted to restrict him with duct tape, prosecutors have said. The men sought to haze and assault Melgar after months of disagreements between him and DeDolph, according to military documents outlining the case and obtained by The Post.
...
The maximum punishment for negligent homicide includes up to three years in prison, dishonorable discharge and demotion in rank to private, according to military sentencing guidelines. Maxwell also could face additional time for some of the other charges he faces.

Matthews, Maxwell, DeDolph and Marine Gunnery Sgt. Mario Madera-Rodriguez were charged with felony murder, involuntary manslaughter, conspiracy, obstruction of justice and hazing. The four men and witnesses who were with them in the hours before the attack joked about sexually assaulting Melgar, according to military documents obtained by The Post. But Maxwell’s stipulation of facts states that the defendants also intended to carry it out.
...
Maxwell, in his stipulation of facts, stated that DeDolph was the primary proponent of the plan. As Matthews did in court last month, Maxwell also said that before the assault, the men woke up Melgar’s team leader, Sgt. 1st Class James Morris, asked for permission to haze Melgar and received it.

A Navy SEAL convicted in the death of a Green Beret soldier is under investigation by authorities for approaching his victim’s widow under a pseudonym at a Las Vegas party, allegedly requesting access to her room and telling her that the SEALs involved in her husband’s death were “good guys,” according to military documents and three people familiar with the case.

Chief Special Warfare Operator Adam C. Matthews faced a murder charge in the death of Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar, and was wearing a Rambo costume at the time, according to the documents, which were obtained by The Washington Post. They were verified with three people familiar with the investigation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case.
...
It also raises questions about the amount of freedom the Navy provided to Matthews, a member of the elite SEAL Team 6 who received a one-year prison sentence in May after becoming the first service member charged who was willing to testify against others involved.
...
Matthews, using the pseudonym “Mike,” approached Melgar in costume, chatted her up, danced with her and exchanged phone numbers with her without revealing who he was, witnesses told an NCIS investigator, according to the documents. She had been invited to SHOT Show as a representative of the Special Forces Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to the families of Special Operations troops in need.

The witnesses, interviewed this spring, described Matthews as attempting to be “cozy” and “flirtatious” toward Melgar, but without any physical contact or kissing. A few of them said Matthews asked to go to her room with her, but she was not interested.

One of the witnesses, an active-duty soldier with a Silver Star for valor, said that Matthews told Melgar that if she knew the real story about what happened in Mali, she would have compassion for the SEALs. Their lives were being ruined, the witness recalled him saying.

CNN
US Navy vice admiral who was set to become the branch's top uniformed officer is instead retiring after his judgment was questioned over a professional relationship he maintained with a former Navy public affairs official who left the Navy after an investigation into alleged incidents of sexual misconduct.

Vice Adm. William Moran decided to retire rather than take on the role of chief of naval operations due to a situation where he "maintained a professional relationship with an individual who was held accountable and counseled for failing to meet the values and standards of the Naval profession," according to a statement by Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer, which "caused me to call his judgment into question."

Moran's resignation stems in part from Moran keeping in contact with Chris Servello, a former Navy public affairs official whose allegations of misconduct were the subject of a wider investigation by the Pentagon Inspector General looking into the handling of that incident by Adm. John Richardson, the current Chief of Naval Operations. Servello has since retired from the Navy.

Yeah, a shining representative of our country:
In late May, user Waldemar Ortiz shared a meme that said “HUNGARY LOCKS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN SHIPPING CONTAINERS TO STOP ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSINGS.”

“Can we apply this here?” Ortiz wrote.

Ortiz’s personal Facebook page indicates that he previously served in the U.S. Marine Corps and now serves in the U.S. Army. In 2018, he captioned a photo in his Marine Corps uniform with the hashtags “fuckmuslims” and “fuckislam.” He has since posted dozens of right wing memes, including one suggesting that Rep. Ilhan Omar is a terrorist.
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Two Marines have been arrested after allegedly trying to smuggle three undocumented Mexican immigrants through California after picking them up on the side of the interstate just north of the border.

Lance Cpls. Byron Darnell Law II and David Javier Salazar-Quintero, based in Camp Pendleton, Calif., were arraigned Monday in federal court on charges of transporting undocumented immigrants “for financial gain,” accused of taking jobs from “recruiters” and following instructions from unknown people in Mexico to make extra cash on the side.

Thirteen Marines have been formally charged with involvement in human smuggling operations, the US Marine Corps announced Friday.

The Marines will face military court proceedings for alleged violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, including failure to obey an order, drunkenness, larceny, perjury and transporting and/or conspiring to transport undocumented immigrants.

"Two of the Marines, Lance Cpl. Byron D. Law and Lance Cpl. David J. Salazar-Quintero, both members of 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division ... were arrested by border patrol personnel on July 3, 2019 for allegedly transporting and conspiring to transport undocumented immigrants," the 1st Marine Division Press Office wrote in a statement.

Navy Times
A former helicopter squadron commander has pleaded guilty to assaulting a fellow officer and will spend a year behind bars, officials confirmed this week.

Before his plea deal, Cmdr. John M. Neuhart faced charges of attempted rape and sexual assault, plus specifications involving him secretly recording a female lieutenant’s residence and fleeing from San Diego police when they arrived there, according to charge sheets.

He’s been dogged by misconduct allegations since a boozy Sept. 12, 2016 night out in San Diego with the unnamed subordinate.

After she accused him of attempted rape, superiors removed Neuhart as the commanding officer of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 25.

His case percolated through several San Diego courtrooms over the next two years.

Two civilian trials ended with hung juries before a judge dismissed charges against him in June 2018.

The Navy filed court-martial charges against him eight months later.

Neuhart pleaded guilty on Aug. 26 to two counts of assault consummated by battery on a commissioned officer for unlawfully grabbing the woman’s body and arms, according to charge sheets and Navy Region Southwest spokesman Brian O’Rourke.
