Strange case of Kentucky soldier charged with espionage
By Christopher Hignite
American Army Specialist William Millay, a 22-year-old military policeman from Owensboro, Kentucky, stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska has been arrested and is awaiting charges of espionage.
Reports from Wave 3 in Louisville, Anchorage Daily News and the Army Times all agree that the FBI, Army and local police worked together to build the case.
Millay was originally being held at the Anchorage jail but the military has stated that he will be prosecuted through the military justice system. Lt. Col. Bill Coppernoll, a spokesman for U.S. Army Alaska, stated to Army Times that within a week “We are preparing to prefer charges against Spc. Millay.”
The FBI spokesman for Alaska, Eric Gonzalez, says his agency and military personnel investigated the case. Gonzalez also confirmed that Millay is not being connected to any leaks to WikiLeaks.
Greg Rinckey, an attorney who specializes in courts-martial , states, “The Army is very serious about prosecuting any types of espionage, or leaks or any type of mishandling of sensitive material.” “The Army wants to send a message to other soldiers that this is not acceptable, and it will be dealt with extremely harshly.”
This is where it gets interesting.
A Federal Security Services or (FSB) report circulating the Kremlin states that the US Military went into a “panic” when a soldier e-mailed his mother to “prepare for the end of the world.”
The report states that Millay had growing concerns over a massive military buildup of NorthCom. This buildup is said to include troops and equipment being shipped in from Afghanistan, Japan and South Korea through the Alaskan base and then to “staging areas” in the US.
NorthCom was created on October 1, 2002 after 9/11. NorthCom is charged with protecting the United States homeland in support of local, state, and federal authorities. This support is limited by the Posse Comitatus Act .
AFNORTH would take charge of the situation or event in the case of national emergencies, natural or man-made.
Specialist Millay believed that the redeployment of these tens of thousands of US troops to America was “somehow” related to the November 9 testing of the United States Emergency Alert System (EAS) that is occurring “coincidentally” with a vast number of disaster drills and exercises being planned for the same time period. This was according to the FSB report.
In a series of e-mails to friends and family that were intercepted by the NSA, the FSB reports, Millay warned when asked what to do, “prepare for the end of the world”.
The FSB notes in their report that the Kentucky region where Specialist Millay comes from is “heavily populated” by staunchly religious Christian conservatives who believe we are living in the “last days” and that President Obama is a “secret Muslim” whose goal is to destroy the United States so that a New World Order can be established ushering in the age of the “anti-Christ” foretold about in the Bible’s Book of Revelations.
The e-mails detail nothing about specific troop movements or plans by the US military.
The “heightened response” by the highest branches of the US government is what caught the attention of the FSB.
According to the FSB report, a “standoff” between the FBI strike team sent to apprehend Specialist Millay and US Army personnel ensued with the Army winning out and keeping him from being taken by Obama regime authorities.
Neither the Army nor the Obama administration have publicly stated exactly what Millay was arrested for. However, the Army is refusing to allow the federal government to prosecute Millay and will handle the case themselves.
The US Army Times wrote:
“Friends from Millay’s hometown were “shocked” to hear of his arrest and said the charges were uncharacteristic of Millay. One friend, Janssen Payne, said Millay is “as loyal to his country as he is to his best friends.” “I just don’t see it,” Payne, 25, said of the Army’s accusations. “I just don’t see the motivation for him to do it.” Payne said Millay’s brother was a soldier and that Millay was a supporter of the wars and then-President George W. Bush when the two of them were in high school. “He was really patriotic and really loved his country,” Payne said.”
The report claims that with the US Officers’ Christian Fellowship Corp having 15,000 members active at 80 percent of American military bases and an annual growth rate, in recent years, of 3 percent, it is not beyond the possibility that a coup may be planned against Obama.
The FSB notes, “it must also be considered that Obama may be preparing to establish martial law in the United States and rule under the existing Executive Orders” created since 9/11.
The US military and the Obama administration are keeping tight-lipped on the subject.
It will be interesting to find out more information from American sources.
Whatever the truth turns out to be, I’ll be waiting for the November 9 EAS testing more cautiously.
Spec. William C. Millay’s attorney says he’s innocent of espionage charges.
Army Spec. William Millay and his family have retained attorney Stephen Karns of Dallas, Texas. Karns specializes in military law and was involved in the legal proceedings of the Abu Ghraib Prison scandal. Karns has only spoken with Millay by phone but does inform the AP that Millay has claimed his innocence. “He doesn’t sound like he has a malicious bone in his body or malevolent intent,” Karns said. He “seems like a really good kid.”
The Army and the FBI have said very little about the case, even to Karns. Charges are now said to be filed early next week. Originally they were to be filed by Friday. “They’re still holding their cards pretty close to the chest,” informed Karns.
His father, Byron Kevin Millay, has said he was not at liberty to discuss the case. I have spoken to other members of the family and others in Owensboro. Very little is known except speculation. Family members, understandably, will all refer questions to Karns.
Army officials are stating that no information was ever transmitted by Karns and that he was being observed before any damage could occur.
