1. Lt Col Scheller is substantively 100% right.
2. When I was in, and if he made this, I would’ve relieved him of command. No politics.
3. But the standard has changed. The leadership changed it. The rule is now uniformed military can do politics. So I would give him a medal. t.co/ruHzagEQf0

A lieutenant colonel in the US Marine Corps said he was relieved of duty after voicing frustration with American leaders for the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, insisting officials take responsibility for their failures.
In a video posted to his Facebook account on Thursday night, Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller unloaded on the country’s military and political leaders for their repeated blunders while exiting America’s longest war, saying that “none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability or saying ‘We messed this up.’”
