Army major sentenced to 10 years in classified documents case

By William Cole

LAST UPDATED: 08:48 p.m. HST, Jun 14, 2013

An Army officer who worked for U.S. Pacific Command was sentenced to 10 years in prison tonight after a military jury found him guilty of illegally possessing and passing classified national defense information, an Army official said.

Maj. Seivirak Inson was also sentenced to forfeiture of pay and dismissal from the Army.  

Inson passed classified intelligence assessments about Cambodia to an unidentified person not entitled to have them between 2009 and 2012, and had unauthorized possession of a U.S. Pacific Command maritime strategy document, which he "had reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States," the Army said.

Capt. Leslie Waddle, a spokes­woman for the Army's 8th Theater Sustainment Command, said Inson was found guilty of those charges, as well as a charge that Inson had unauthorized possession of a Defense Intelligence Agency intelligence report.

Inson also failed to report to his chain of command that he had contact with Cambodian military and government officials, Waddle said.

Inson, who has been in custody now for nearly a year, did not testify during the trial which opened this week.

He faces up to 10 years in prison for each of the most serious counts of illegally possessing classified documents.

Inson was born and raised in Cambodia and fled to the United States after his parents were killed during the Khmer Rouge regime during the 1970s, according to his civilian attorney, Emmanuel Tipon.

He used to be on Fox News until he exposed the fact that the Federal Reserve Bank is actually made up of a cartel of private banks. Now he has his own show on Blaze TV. I have never followed him very close until now. We'll see how credible he is.
