SPC Beyshee O. Velez

SPC Beyshee O. Velez, 31, was charged on Monday with two counts of murder, three counts of assault, and one count of fleeing apprehension. He is accused of killing a civilian contractor on September 13th at the Contingency Operating Base Speicher near Tikrit in Iraq. The Associated Press reported that the civilian contractor was shot three times after offering a ride to an American soldier who flagged down his vehicle on the base. An Article 32 investigation will now convene to review all evidence, and make recommendations on the disposition of the charges.


  1. I don't know about Spc Velez... but EVERYONE who knew Trent Vinson liked him. He was a hard worker, good spirited in spite of the conditions around us. Typical that he would give someone a ride when flagged down and just as typical that he probably saved the lives of a dozen people through a raw courage that so many of us like to think we posses but few actually do... unarmed... just his hands... against an armed soldier, trying to prevent a tragedy.

  2. As published author in Political Control Technology and crimes of the intelligence community my review of the activities/comments of Velez that day and lack of recall smack of a 'Manchurian Candidate' assassination. Since anyone working for KBR in this context could easily knowingly or unknowingly be a CIA operative (or suspected to be) it is possible that DOD and CIA interests clashed and a decision was made. For DOD to disallow a mental-condition based defense allows simple cover up. To allow it risks detection of programming and mission details via MPD/DID alters by proper use of regressional analysis. If a mental defense is allowed, the entire affair could easily result in a scandal larger than any the military or CIA has ever faced, and expose the existence of mind control programs in both groups. Thus if such a defense is allowed, I would predict the only 'out' for DOD would be a suicided Velez. Take care out there.
