This is terrible. I mean just the worst thing. This Lt.Col. spoke out about the disaster that was the recent evacuation of Afganistan. Willing to take responsibility himself, he called out the superiors who were not and called into question their inability to use the weight of their seniority to demand Bagram airbase be kept in use until all Americans and allies were flown out to safety. Having made a post about this (,not in my view as political as General who claimed to have rang up the Chinese to give them a heads up on any orders he received from Trump), the US army demanded he undergo psychiatric evaluation. When he refused he was placed in Jail. The following is annexcerpt from a British newspaper:
"Scheller said that 'excusing the action of service members because of "PTSD" does more damage to service members than any trauma in combat' and that he is stronger because of his involvement in 'very traumatic situations.'
Scheller's original video criticized Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley for leaving the Bagram Air Base before all Americans and their allies had the chance to be evacuated.
It came after 13 U.S. service members, including 11 Marines, were killed along with more than 90 Afghans after at least one suicide bomber attacked the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul. "
