The Marine Corps is currently looking to evaluate a Marine Major to see if he should be kicked out of the Marine Corps. The reason? Because he cooperated as requested. The story cliff note version is that he dealt with some dirt bags in Afghanistan. Yes, they are dirty and we/he dealt with them in an effort to make the entire shit hole over there a little better.
Maj. Jason Brezler’s warnings about an Afghan police chief and his ‘tea boys’ went unaddressed, and three Marines were slain. One year later, the Marines are taking action—against him.
The result, 3 Marines were killed by “friendly” Afg forces and the Marine Corps is looking to prosecute the “reserve” Major for trying to bring justice to the culprits. I’ve seen this before(a lot) especially with the “reserves” but active as well where they “crush” Marines and stick the blame on them. Is that following the Marine creed of taking care of your Marines? No it’s not for you slow kids out there.
This Maj didn’t have to continue to help his buddies still deployed as he was back in the States, working as a respectable fireman. There is mention of a “classified” document being sent to his buddies in Afg from the States in lieu of him trying to help. I can tell you, this is the typical part of someone making a mountain out of a mole hill and why? Lets send our best to deal with the worse scum of the earth, and then hammer them without looking out for them. Yea, this makes educated Americans, our very best to offer want to join the military.
If it happened once, it will happen again. But hey, maybe I’m off my rocker here, maybe I’m out to lunch but you go and read it and give my your thoughts. Time for a C-Gar.
