ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I want to thank Rowan Scarborough for his article “Semper fi? Taliban desecration case ignites battle in top ranks of Marines” (Web, March 17).

Any case in which the credibility of the Marine Corps leadership is being called into question is one that should be thoroughly investigated — particularly when the commandant himself has attempted to cast doubt on the honesty of multiple members of his own service.

I appreciate The Washington Times for taking a stand for integrity and drawing attention to this incident.
