The Case Of Lt. Col Scheller

 You folks might remember the case of Lt. Col Scheller, a Marine battalion commander who infamously posted a video demanding accountability following the disastrous rout of Kabul.  Many of us agreed with him that the evacuation was handled poorly, and that senor civilian and military leaders should publicly account for the worst military disaster since Saigon.

Lt. Col Scheller is in jail today, preparing for a hearing to determine if he should face a courts-martial.

The case is complex, and requires an understanding of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which is decidedly different from civil law.  

 John Lucas provides an over-view of the case at The Federalist.  It provides a balanced view of the case to this point, and deserves a thorough examination.

This case of a rebellious, yet previously honorable officer may not be as simple as it appears on the face.
