In late August, Marine Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller made a video criticizing his bosses and demanding accountability for the botched Afghan withdrawal that led to the devastating suicide bombing at the Kabul airport that killed 13 US service members and scores of Afghans. Colonel Scheller submitted his resignation letter to his superiors effective 9/11, as he walked away from a $2 million pension after 17 years of service. He was relieved of his command and was even thrown in the brig. Scheller’s father said, “They had a gag order on him and asked him not to speak. He did, and they incarcerated him. They don’t know what to do with him.” -GEG

The US Marine Corps officer who was relieved of his command for chastising his bosses over the botched Afghan withdrawal has landed in military lockup, his father said.

In a video that went viral on Facebook last month, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller ripped into military leadership following the devastating suicide bombing at the Kabul airport, which killed 13 US service members and scores of Afghans.

Following the impassioned spiel, Lt. Col. Scheller announced he was resigning his commission and walking away from a $2 million pension after 17 years of service.

He later announced that he was ordered to undergo a mental health screening.

Now, his father told Task & Purpose that the officer is currently in the brig.

I thought that freedom of speech based on truth was still part of our constitutional right. I also thought that arming an enemy who has killed and maimed 100’s of our service people would be considered treason???So the person issuing the order to abandon all military equipment fo the enemy to take and use against us should be tried for treason! The Col should be released and returned to duty with an apology if he wants one!
