Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who went viral after posting a video criticizing the Biden Administration’s top generals over their lack of accountability during the Afghan withdrawal, has reportedly now been placed behind bars and is awaiting trial.

As Fox News reports:

“All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud,” Scheller’s father, Stu Scheller Sr., told Task & Purpose. “He was asking for accountability. In fact, I think he even asked for an apology that we made mistakes, but they couldn’t do that, which is mind-blowing.”

Scheller first rose to internet stardom by posting a video to Facebook blasting military leaders for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, questioning their command decisions on the events leading up to and during the final evacuation effort.

Scheller would go on to release several more videos, generating praise and controversy while drawing the ire of military leadership. Eventually, he was told by superiors to stop posting to social media altogether, an order he immediately ignored by posting about the gag order.


Scheller is “currently in pre-trial confinement,” a spokesperson for Training and Education Command said of the officer’s status.

The time and date of his hearing have not yet been released to the public.

America has a constitution which includes free speech, unless dementia Joe doesn’t like what you say.

Yes we do, however there is the little thing called the UCMJ which all military personnel are subject to.

You apparently know nothing of the military. “They” are not separate or above the law, but the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) is the set of laws that governs the military. In joining the military, you give up certain rights and are held to a much higher standard of conduct than civilians are. One of those strictures is that commissioned officers are prohibited from speaking disparagingly of the chain of command, including the civilian portion, specifically the Secretary of Defense and the President. To do otherwise is to compromise the entire structure of the military and the sacred concept of civilian control over the military.

Scheller knew this, and violated it. Had he resigned his commission, he would have had the same First Amendment rights as everyone else; remaining in the military and speaking out, he did not. He deliberately broke the law, and must pay the consequences. Not everything that is legal is right, and not everything that is right is legal. With only 17 years in, he is throwing away his military pension and may very well lose his freedom to speak the truth. I applaud his courage.

While you have a point you are also missing that this was done by many under the trump administration most notably vindman. Where was the lockups where were the trials? Oh when its attacking a Republican leadership they are hailed as heroes and Patriots and given whistleblower protections even though they dont qualify for it under the law. That it the disgrace of this all and what the outrage should really be about. Even the military has politicized the code of conduct. One system for all or the system should be torn down!

The Biden band muted him because he questioned that they cannot answer and assume responsibility. Violation of UCMJ is not substantially the cause.
He is a hero to me and applaud him and his family who supports his decision.

While technically you are 100% correct – what about people like Vindman? Vindman lied while in uniform – spoke out against Trump multiple times. It is the selective enforcement of regulations and laws that has the majority pis*ed off. He spoke truth to power and now is being punished unjustly and that punishment is politically induced – not policy induced.

I agree, but to pounce on one of the best available to defend our country falls in a category of revenge more than military law.
I think it was done to send a message to the rest of the future soldiers that are definitely going to speak out against this administration. I have took a good look around and have come to the conclusion
that the biden administration is nothing more than a domestic threat to our freedoms.

Unfortunately, they are, once you raise your hand and get sworn in you are actually government property. At least that was true when I was in from 66 to 70; maybe things have changed in the ‘new’ all voluntary service.

LT CALLIE, REMEMBER HIM, YOUR TOLD IN BASIC TRAINING THAT WHEN ORDERED TO DO SOMETHING EVEN IF YOU KNOW ITS WRONG DO IT OR GET COURT MARTIAL , SO CALLIE DID WHAT HE WAS TOLD TO DO AND IS SPENDING THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN JAIL. NOW WE HAVE SOMEONE WITH HONOR DOES THE RIGHT THING AND HE IS FACING COURT MARTIAL WHEN HIS SO CALLED SUPERIORS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM COMMAND AND PUT IN JAIL AWAITING COURT MARTIAL FOR DERELICTION OF DUTY !! THE AFGHANISTAN PULL OUT WAS BEYOND STUPIDITY AND IN THE COWARDLY ACT OF LEAVING AMERICANS AT THE HANDS OF MUSLIM LUNATICS AND THE SUICIDE BOMBER WHO MURDERED 13 GREAT AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND GIVING BACK THE HARD EARNED COUNTRY OVERNIGHT TO THE VERY PEOPLE THAT WE FOUGHT FOR 20 YEARS IS WORSE THAN VIETNAM . BIDEN IS A TRAITOR, TERRORIST, A COMMUNIST SELLOUT TO CHINA !! DID YOU KNOW BIDEN HAS A STAKE IN A CORPORATION THAT IS IN AFGHANISTAN AND CHINA OWNS IT ?? REMOVE THIS COWARD AND HIS FAKE GENERALS AND TRY AND EXECUTE THEM !! REMOVE KAMALA FROM THE PRESIDENCY BECAUSE SHE IS NOT QUALIFIED TO RUN A KIOSK IN A MALL !! VIETNAM VET 67-68

We are, but to whom do we turn to for help? The system is not set up to make sudden changes, or we would try installing a new government every week. That certainly wouldn’t work. We have to wait this one out, if possible, considering how fast it’s changing our way of life.
