MARINE COMMANDER FIRED FOR RIPPING AFGHAN DISASTER

From zerohedge.com

Though there are abundant examples of retired and former military officers publicly demanding accountability of the Biden administration over how the horribly bungled and now utterly tragic Afghan draw down and evacuation is going, it's incredibly rare and almost unheard of to see an active duty officer voice criticisms directed at top Pentagon brass on a public level.

But one high ranking Marine officer has done just that in a now viral video. Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller until Friday was a sitting Marine infantry battalion commander in good standing, but late in the day it's been confirmed he was promptly relieved of his command over his statements.

"I am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders, 'I demand accountability,'" the Lieutenant colonel said in the Facebook video which already racked up millions of views across various platforms.

Following the horrific deaths of 13 American soldiers and over 160 Afghans during yesterday's suicide attack on Kabul airport, Scheller shredded the "ineptitude" of the military's top leadership, even questioning whether the entirety of the botched withdrawal and evacuation effort means Americans have "died in vain" over the course of the whole two-decade long war.

His focus in the scathing critique was to question whether top brass stood up to the Biden administration, even while knowing that the administration's decision-making would lead to chaos, disaster, and possible deaths - as is tragically playing out now...

"I'm not saying we've got to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am saying: Did any of you throw your rank on the table and say 'hey, it's a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic airbase, before we evacuate everyone,'" he said.

"Did anyone do that? And when you didn't think to do that, did anyone raise their hand and say 'we completely messed this up.'" Scheller questioned further. What makes the short video unprecedented and raw is also that he's in uniform, sitting in what appears to be his base office (such 'political speech' in open contradiction of the chain of command while in uniform violates DoD policies). The long-serving officer of 17 years knows this, as he later acknowledged in a short follow-up message. "Did any of you throw your rank on the table..." - and question? ...Sheller himself does just that, and is now paying the price for it.

Politico and others later in the day Friday confirmed that not only was Scheller quickly relieved of command within 24 hours, but that action is being taken which will lead to discharge from the service altogether, likely pending UCMJ proceedings.

"I've been in the Marine infantry for 17 years. I started my tour with Victor 1-8, that's the current unit that's doing perimeter security, dealing with the mess that's going on there," Scheller explained in the video.

It's being widely reported that until being relieved on Friday, he was commander of the School of Infantry East (SOI-EAST) at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

In the video he ripped everyone from top Marine commanders to the Secretary of Defense for failures in Afghanistan which led to more senseless deaths.

"But we have a secretary of defense that testified to Congress in May that the Afghan National Security Forces could withstand the Taliban advance," he said. "We have Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs - who the commandant is a member of that - who's supposed to advise on military policy. We have a Marine combatant commander. All of these people are supposed to advise."

Should things continue to spiral downhill in Kabul over these coming days, possibly with more terror attacks looming, could the American public witness more such symbolic acts of 'rebellion' to come within the ranks of active duty US troops against the Biden administration?

    Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller: you may not be a hero to the corrupt, political ass-kissing military bureaucrat brass, or the traitors in the DC swamp, but you are a hero to our country and people like me. We are proud of you and your courage in speaking truth to corrupt power! God Bless.

    ***

    He's 100% on the money. And there are 10's of thousands rethinking their oath now. Rethinking may be the wrong word. They're actually considering DEFENDING the constitution. Against orders.

    ***

    Interesting dynamic now with active duty and veterans loathing Biden. Not a good situation for Potatus. And that's all I'll say.

    ***

    Lt Col has a moral compass. No place for that under Biden.

    ***

    I served with the USMC. This LT COL is legit and we all know it. He risked his military career and retirement. The White house is illegitimate and we need more to defy them.

    ***

    The "commander in chief" is controlled by China...10% for the big guy.

    ***

    God Bless You Lt. Col Stuart Scheller... Thank You for Standing true to your Oath to the US Constitution. In the Oath, all new Marine recruits promise to defend and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, and I Paraphrase..."I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same...So help me God." Every American whether they know it or not takes a similar, although more Civilian in nature and tone, Oath to the US Constitution.

    ***

    That is a Marine right there men. I rarely participate in go fund me type stuff, but if this man needs my help...I AM HERE.

    ***

    If our country survives this onslaught, it will be because of the heroic actions of Americans like this LT COL. Bless you for your courage, our true friend.

    ***

    He's confirming what the Entire World now knows - The Senior Leadership of the US Military is a Joke. Nothing but SJW/LGBT loving, *** kissing clowns.

    ***

    What he's starting is the truth, We the People are in the fight of our lifetime. And sadly most Americans are still asleep, or falling to the WOKE garbage.

    ***

    That's why the FIB infiltrates and controls groups like the oathkeepers, III%ers, proud boys, etc. TPTB know that if the people had even a small leadership core that had integrity, honor and loyalty, it is over for them. That's why it's disappointing that so few who took an oath to defend our Constitution and our republic are willing to stand up and fulfill their oath. We hear crickets except for this lone light colonel.

    ***

    Our politicians violate the Constitution flagrantly and too many senior military, sworn to it, say nothing. We have a horrific, immoral, and incompetent government. Power corrupts.

    You have EVERY right to be outraged. Our media, educational system, Hollywood, multi-national corporations, and even professional sports have been suborned to the avant-garde anti-American, illiberal, and suicidal philosophical bent. It is the immutable sine wave of human history. Liberty breeds lazy people who never lift a finger to defend it and therefore have no appreciation for its rarity. Gird your loins.

    ***

    I would have thought that defending America against all enemies, domestic or foreign, would have been the most important part of the oath. Not keeping his mouth shut and looking the other way while we are betrayed here, there and everywhere.

    ***

    Brave guy to throw away his retirement and future in the marines, to throw away your life's work. But that's how bad it's gotten.

    ***

    He is way too honest and non-PC to serve in this fraud/joke of an administration.

    ***

    I hope he didn't take the vax. I know it's a stretch, but maybe he wasn't going to take it and he decided to go out this way. Smart move if so.

    ***

    Patriots in the military will soon will take the lead of US Government, and will arrest all the traitors, from the Biden regime on down.

    ***

    Hey totalitarian communists, you want a civil war? Well one is on the way.

    ***

    The woke Marxist Military thinks that they are winning by ridding themselves of soldiers who are Constitutional Americans. All they are really doing however, is sending young, trained soldiers to the local militias. The local militias will need men like him, for when S H T F and the citizens go up against the government.
