The US Marine Lieutenant Colonel who spoke up against the Biden administration’s fumbling of the Afghanistan withdrawal has resigned, according to sources.
Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, said that he was resigning away his VA benefits and commission.
“I could stay in the Marine Corps for another three years, but I don’t think that’s the path I’m on. I’m resigning my commission as a United States Marine, effective now,” Scheller said. “I am forfeiting retirements, all entitlements, I don’t want a single dollar. I don’t want any money from the VA. I don’t want any VA benefits [even though] I’m sure I’m entitled 100%.”
Scheller started a media firestorm after he openly spoke out against the Biden presidency, holding the president personally responsible for the loss of 13 personnel in Afghanistan.
“I’m not saying we need to be in Afghanistan forever, but I am 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 airbase, before we evacuate everyone’?” Scheller said last Thursday. “Did anyone do that? And when you didn’t think to do that, did anyone raise their hand and say, ‘We completely messed this up’?”
According to Fox News, Scheller made the announcement on Sunday.
