A U.S. sailor who planned to give a journalist classified information about the Navy’s nuclear-powered warships and then defect to Russia, was recently sentenced to three years in prison, officials said Friday.
Three years??? They should hang this traitor bitch from the yard-arm.
U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Stephen Kellogg III pleaded guilty to two counts of espionage earlier this month and admitted to contacting Sevmash, a Russian shipbuilding enterprise. In an email to the ship maker, he wrote: “I am willing,” the FBI said in a statement.
The 26-year-old also admitted to authorities that releasing the classified information could degrade the ability of nuclear-powered warships and cause injury to the United States, Jeff Houston of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service in an email to The Associated Press. As a nuclear electrician’s mate, Kellogg had access to information related to the capabilities, operations and maintenance of nuclear propulsion systems.
In the big scheme of things, there can not be anything much worse than a traitor to ones country. The death penalty should be mandatory.
