Alleged Purchase of Classified Documents Sparks Investigation


Recent reports to a U.S. Government official regarding the alleged sale of classified documents, has sparked an investigation into the individuals behind both the solicitation of the buyer, and whether the documents involved are actually authentic government documents.

In early November, Bob Collins, a retired Air Force intelligence officer formerly with the Foreign Technology Division and author of the book Exempt from Disclosure, published a statement in response to questions about an allegedly classified document from his book entitled “Adam and Eve Report”. In his online comments he wrote:

“It wasn’t Officially Declassified anymore than other material I have here. No government agency would acknowledge any of it, the same for the DIA docs. I paid Rick for his services so the material belongs to me…..Rmc”

Several sources who were part of the email discussions report that Collins further stated that the “Adam & Eve” information came from Richard C. Doty’s sources in 1999 when they had allegedly received payment from millionaire and philanthropist Joe Firmage in exchange for still-classified documents.

According to the government source familiar with the investigation, Richard Doty told Bob Collins that his sources were LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory) employees, however would not provide those names. The source indicated that a preliminary investigation revealed that there were no such documents, and there were no reports of any security breach at the National Lab in or around 1999, and there were no such documents related to any past security breaches.

If true, and depending on the nature of, and intended use of this information, this activity could represent a form of espionage. Espionage, in the United States, is classified as “The act of obtaining, delivering, transmitting, communicating, or receiving information about the national defense with an intent, or reason to believe, that the information may be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation. Espionage is a violation of 18 United States Code 792-798 and Article 106, Uniform Code of Military Justice[1].”

Several members of the forum and individuals copied on private email exchanges reported these statements to a U.S. Official within the Intelligence community, in a position to investigate.

This official initiated an investigation into these complaints, and conducted preliminary interviews with Richard C. Doty and Robert Collins prior to passing the complaints on to CI (Counter-Intelligence) Staff. It is uncertain at this point whether a formal report has yet been submitted to the Justice Department for further investigation.

In a similar case in 1995, John Douglas Charlton, a retired Lockheed Corporation engineer, was arrested for attempting to sell secret documents removed from the company when he retired. These documents concerned Sea Shadow, a Navy stealth project and the Captor Project related to mines that could release anti-sub torpedoes. According to the espionage indictment, Charlton tried to sell the information to an FBI agent posing as a foreign government representative.

“Hill, an Air Force veteran, was paid $25,000 for files from November 1999 until last week, according to a six-page complaint filed in U.S. District Court in New York. He was arrested Friday in Las Vegas after allegedly faxing classified information drawn from computer files to an FBI informant in New York.”

If the Adam & Eve documents have any sort of classified information, as implied by those who’ve released them – Rick Doty, or whoever else took part in the financial exchange, can face up to 15 to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine if convicted.

If the documents are fake or fabricated – it is likely the investigation will simply be dropped.
