Here is your guy.
Leandro Aragoncillo.
www.cicentre.com...

He is Filipino and has had six Good Conduct Medals and a Humanitarian Service Medal.

Doesn't sound much like a spy.

EDIT: adding on.


--Knowingly communicating classified information by a government employee to an agent or representative of a foreign country (i.e. receiving classified information).

--Acting as an agent of a foreign official without notification of the Attorney General in violation of Title 18 of the US Code, Section 951

--Unauthorized use of a government computer to obtain and transmit classified information

--Conspiracy to commit all of the above offenses in violation of Title 18 of the US Code Section 371.

6 good conduct medals...that would at least 18 years of active duty service

Probably an E7+

Officials say the classified material, which Aragoncillo stole from the vice president's office, included damaging dossiers on the president of the Philippines. He then passed those on to opposition politicians planning a coup in the Pacific nation.

"Even though it's not for the Russians or some other government, the fact that it occurred at the White House is a matter of great concern," said John Martin, who was the government's lead espionage prosecutor for 26 years.

Last year, after leaving the Marines, Aragoncillo was caught by the FBI while he worked for the Bureau at an intelligence center at Fort Monmouth, N.J.

According to a criminal complaint, Aragoncillo was arrested last month and accused of downloading more than 100 classified documents from FBI computers.

"The information was transferred mostly by e-mails," said U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie at the time of Aragoncillo's arrest.

Since that arrest, officials say Aragoncillo has started to cooperate. He has admitted to spying while working on the staff of Vice President Cheney's office.

There is no possible duty that could supercede that of which he first swore to as a USMC recruit.


Oath Of Enlistment
In the Armed Forces EXCEPT the National Guard (Army or Air)

I, ___________________________________, do solemly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.


Sorry, I'm not seeing it.

The only way he could be upholding his duty is

A. If he feels his duty was sworn to another government
B. If a higher officer ordered him to do what he did.

Either way he is not upholding his oath to the UNITED STATES MARINE CORP. He could be, however, upholding another oath he took. One that supercedes his oath to the corp. (in his mind anyway) What ever oath that would be it will not hold up to a court marshall.

Even if that were the case.....he knew better.

There is NO duty that requires a Marine to compromise classified material, especially to a foreign gov't

Even if he is a scapegoat, if he was involved, he should be prosecuted. If he broke his oath by working for foreign criminals, or domestic criminals perched in the big house, what does it matter?

Treason is treason.

I hasten to mention selling out one's own country to international business interests is perhaps the highest form of treason, since it inevitably results in the enslavement of millions and untold misery.

I assure you, nothing supercedes the oath in the United States Marine Corps. Regardless of previous fealty, when he first took that oath it was a clean slate... This will most likely be a case of character flaw (as was the cases in the past), money, thrill seeking, women... Time will tell.

If true, and he's convicted... Hangings to good for him.
