The US Navy who was relieved of his command after criticizing his superiors for their management of Afghanistan has tendered his resignation, citing a “lack of confidence” in military leaders.

“I submit my resignation from commission in the United States Marine Corps, as per benchmark, and request an effective date of September 11, 2021,” Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller said in his resignation letter, which is dated Tuesday.

The letter follows a viral video in which Scheller, a 17-year-old Marine, criticized senior military officials following the attack in Kabul that left 13 people dead in an ISIS suicide bombing.

“I’m not saying we have to be in Afghanistan forever, but I’m saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table and say, ‘Hey, that’s a bad idea to evacuate Bagram Airfield, a strategic air base, before we evacuate everyone ‘? “Scheller said last Thursday in the video.” Has anyone done that? And when you haven’t thought about doing that, did someone put their hand up and say, “We totally screwed this up”?

He was later relieved of his command, but remained true to his message of responsibility in the military.

These are the people. that I need, ”said Scheller. “Follow me and we will bring the whole system down. I am honorable and you can ask any Marine who has served with me for 17 years.
