Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller Jr. is being released from the military brigade today after winning overwhelming public support for his condemnation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan
Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller Jr. is being released from the military brigade today after receiving overwhelming public support for his condemnation of the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Scheller Jr. was jailed last Monday at Camp Leujene in North Carolina for repeatedly criticizing the army’s chaotic withdrawal from Kabul.
He was three days before retirement when he was stripped of his post and thrown into the grim confinement room to await a military trial for contempt.
Now it is unclear whether he is still being charged or not. A Marine spokesman declined to confirm what time he will be released or why.
In a statement, they told DailyMail.com, “Lt. Colonel Stuart Scheller Jr. will be released from confinement today, October 5, 2021, as a result of a mutual agreement between Lieutenant Colonel Scheller, his defense adviser, and the Commanding General of the Training Command.”
Scheller, based at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, was three years after his retirement when he posted a scathing video criticizing superiors on August 26, the same day the 13 US troops were killed in Kabul.
“I’m not saying we have to be in Afghanistan forever, but I’m 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 air base, before we get everyone else? evacuate’?’ Scheller Jr said in the widely distributed clip.
Scheller was removed from command of the Advanced Infantry Training Battalion at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, the day after he posted his first video “because of a loss of confidence and confidence in his ability to command,” said Major Jim Stenger, a spokesman for the marines.
Last week, his mother Cathy told how the family had been “heartbroken” by the way the military had treated him.
“He’s in a cell with no books, no phone, nothing. We are devastated and so is he. We love America and we are so shocked by what we are learning about what the new military is like in this country,” she said. The New York Post.
