Last week Dadmanly (and Barb & Sgt. B & Blackfive) were reporting on the story of two American Soldiers who were killed in FOB Danger near Tikrit. The officers, Capt. Phillip Esposito and 1LT. Louis Allen, died on June 7th during an apparent mortar attack on their building.
However, the investigation immediately following the attack revealed a blast pattern that was not consistent with a mortar attack. Further investigation has now lead to the arrest of SSGT. Alberto Martinez, who is believed to have used an explosive device (possibly a grenade) to target and kill his superior officers. This is the second American Soldier accused of murdering fellow Soldiers (the first was in Kuwait, in 2003), but this one was a personal attack on specific officers.
What a sad, sad situation....
