The U.S. military is ordered not to criticize Joe Biden over the disaster in Afghanistan.
This applies to active duty and retired naval intelligence members, the report says.
However, not everyone is being quiet.
86 retired generals and admirals have demanded the resignation of top military personnel in a letter. A “fundamental principle in the military is holding those in charge responsible and accountable for their actions or inactions,” the letter states.
We have also seen the mother and father of multiple Gold Star families speak out against Biden after 13 U.S. service members were killed by a suicide bomber.
Kathy McCollum, the Gold Star mother of fallen 20-year old Marine Rylee McCollum, said Joe Biden is “a feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap” who “sent my son to die.”
Craig Gross, the Gold Star father of U.S. Army Cpl. Frank Robert Gross, told Biden “please quit blaming this on the former president” and “you are culpable.” Gross added, “You alone.”
Now we have learned that Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was relieved of duty after he demanded military leadership show some accountability.
Scheller spoke out despite knowing it might have the consequence of him being relieved.
He said that “The baby boomers’ turn is over. I demand accountability, at all levels. If we don’t get it, I’m bringing it.”
Scheller noted that he will be resigning his commission at 17 years, which is short of his 20 years for retirement. This would eliminate his pension and benefits.

Here’s his message via RedState and Breitbart:
I want to make the announcement today. After 17 years, I currently not pending legal action and I can 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. I’m sure there’s some more admin on how I’m supposed to do that and I’ll work through that. But I have forfeiting my retirement 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. I’m sure I’m entitled to a hundred percent. I, you know, breathe on the smell and smoke of burning shit for years. I don’t want any of it. All I asked for was accountability of my senior leaders. When there are clear, obvious mistakes that were made, I’m not saying we can take back what has been done.
All I asked for was accountability for people to comment on what I said and to say, ‘Yes, some mistakes were made and had they done that. I wouldn’t have gone back into rank and file, submitted and accomplished what I wanted the morning after I posted my video and I came into work, my boss came in and he asked me, ‘What were you trying to accomplish?’
And that was a very tough question for me. And my response was I want senior leaders to accept accountability. I think them accepting accountability would do more for service members and PTSD and struggling with purpose than any other transparent piece of paper or message. And I haven’t received that.
For the over $2 million that I would potentially receive in retirement for the rest of my life, for the however much extra the disability would be, I think that money should go back to all the senior general officers, because I think they need it more than I do because when I am done with what I’m about to do, you all are going to need the jobs and the security.
“We will bring the whole f**ing system down. I am honorable. You can ask any Marine who served with me for 17 years,” Scheller said. “I dare you to ask them all and find out what I’m made of. We’re just getting started.”
