A Navy intelligence specialist at the Joint Special Operations Command 
has been accused of taking top secret documents from military networks 
and offering to sell them to an investigator posing as a foreign agent.

Petty Officer Bryan Minkyu Martin was arrested last week by the Naval 
Criminal Investigative Service, after a sting operation in which he 
passed classified documents to an FBI undercover agent claiming to be an 
intelligence officer of a foreign country, according to the affidavit 
for a search warrant filed last week in a federal court in North 
Carolina.

Martin, who enlisted in 2007 and was assigned to the Special Operations 
Command at Fort Bragg, has not been charged. An attorney for Martin 
could not be contacted Tuesday night.

The military is investigating Martin under some of the same Espionage 
Act statutes as those being used to investigate Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, 
the Army intelligence analyst suspected of leaking cables and other 
classified documents to WikiLeaks.

According to the affidavit, Martin met the agent at a Hampton Inn in 
Spring Lake, N.C., on Nov. 15. He is alleged to have described his 
access to various classified systems and offered to bring two classified 
documents to their next meeting. He also allegedly said that he was 
seeking "long-term financial reimbursement," that his current assignment 
focused on Afghanistan and that he would be working for the Defense 
Intelligence Agency.
