The Marine officer who got fired after talking about military leadership for their disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal has given a new warning to these same leaders.
Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller went viral just last week after publishing a video where he demanded accountability for top military leaders who aided President Biden facilitate the now-infamous Afghanistan withdrawal.
Inside his clip, Scheller explained he had questions for “top leaders,” and asked about these leaders bucked details about the Biden Admin.’s Afghanistan withdrawal plan, like the decision to give over Bagram Air Base.
“Did anybody do this? And did anybody said out loud that, ‘We totally messed this up?'” he said.
Later in his clip, Scheller directly said that “senior leaders” were to blame for letting America down. He called out Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley, and Marine Commandant Gen. David Berger.
“The reason Americans are so angry right now is not due to a Marine letting someone down,” Scheller said. “That troops always rose to the challenge and did extraordinary things. People are angry because of their top leaders letting them down and they have not accepted accountability or said ‘we messed this all up.'”
On Friday, Scheller said via Facebook that was “relieved for cause due to a lack of confidence and trust.”
What is he saying now?
The decorated Marine officer spoke to the NY Post and gave a warning about accountability for America’s military leaders.
“The baby boomer’s turn is done,” Scheller said. “I want accountability, at all levels. If we do not get it, I am bringing it.”
According to the NY Post, Scheller also issues a Thomas Jefferson quote, reporting that “every generation must have a revolution.”
The Post also reached out to Scheller’s dad, Stuart Scheller Sr., who said his son was “a Marine’s Marine.”
“His troops will follow him anywhere. He put his life out there for his fellow troops so putting his career out there like this does not shock me,” Scheller Sr. stated. “It is interesting that no military leader has answered his demand for accountability. Their answer was firing him. It is a sad day for the United States.”
