Between 2010 and 2013 Obama engaged in a purge of good military officers, a total of 197. officers who were loyal to the United States and its Constitution were fired or forced out. Biden is continuing that shameful legacy. What Obama, and now Biden want, are “woke” officers who believe that our military should have men in dresses, that our veterans are all “domestic terrorists” and racism against white people is good. The goofball Gen. Milley, who single handedly lost the Afghanistan War, left Americans behind to be held as hostages, and who incompetently bombed 10 civilians, including 7 children, exemplifies the Obama-Biden military leadership. Our troops on the frontline, indeed all Americans, deserve so much better.
The purge continues. Now they are after Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr, a Marine who spoke out against the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. This hero spoke the truth in order to save lives in the future. Instead of calmly addressing and fixing the problems raised by Lt. Col. Scheller, he was relieved of his command and incarcerated this week for demanding that senior military officials be held accountable. I join Lt. Col. Scheller in demanding accountability:
$82 Billion in U.S. Military equipment given to the Taliban without a fight
Thousands of American citizens abandoned in Kabul and left to fend for themselves
Droning and killing an American ally and his family, including killing 7 children, and for weeks lying about it and Milley himself called it a “righteous killing.”
Lt. Col. Scheller now faces confinement until his hearing and stands accused of contempt toward officials, disobeying a superior officer, failing to obey lawful orders, and conduct unbecoming of an officer. It is clear that these charges are politically motivated and in retaliation to his criticism of military officials for their actions in connection with the withdrawal from Afghanistan. These bogus charges are meant to silence anyone daring to criticize the deadly consequences stemming from the Afghanistan pullout. Everyone knows Milley is incompetent, which is why he wants anyone fired who points this out.
I have the honor of serving on the Justice for Warriors Caucus which supports imprisoned service members who fought for our freedom and have been unfairly treated by the military justice system. Many of my constituents, and many more people across the country, have rightfully voiced support for Lt. Col. Scheller, who has an excellent record of 15 years of dedicated service in the Marines. Therefore, this week we sent a letter to the Marine Corps demanding that Lt. Col. Scheller be removed from pretrial confinement.
