The Obama administration appears to be launching a new diplomatic push to prevent China from imposing another destabilizing air defense zone over international waters.
The last thing a Marine thinks about is the minimum standard. "The few, the proud, the Marines" aren't satisfied with the ordinary. Leathernecks are first to fight "for right and freedom," as their hymn goes, knowing that lives depend on their courage and ability. No one gets participation trophies because "everyone's a winner."
A Marine Corps whistleblower says the Pentagon is investigating whether higher-ups retaliated against him for filing complaints against the Marine commandant.
More than two dozen former Marine Corps and Navy judge advocates are asking Congress to investigate the Corps' top officer for what they say is unlawful conduct in the Taliban urination cases.
The Marine Corps' war against an officer who has accused the commandant of wrongdoing intensified this week: Headquarters identified Maj. James Weirick as a potential Washington Navy Yard-type killer.
The Marine Corps' military chief fired two of the service's two-star generals for failing to secure a base in Afghanistan that was attacked by Taliban insurgents last year, an attack that resulted in two Marine deaths and the destruction of $200 million worth of aircraft.
Legal proceedings for Marines accused of urinating on dead insurgents in Afghanistan have been ongoing for many months. Only recently, however, has the Marine Corps disgorged documents that demonstrate criminal conduct by the commandant of the Marine Corps in attempting to unlawfully influence the outcomes of legal proceedings against these Marines. Documents obtained by attorneys in the pending courts-martial demonstrate that the commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. James Amos, removed the authority to dispose of the cases from Lt. Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser, whom he previously had appointed, after Gen. Waldhauser refused Gen. Amos' demand that the accused Marines be "crushed" and discharged.
Gen. James Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, said the Training and Education Command "will continue to gather data and ensure that female Marines are provided with the best opportunity to succeed."
He said the inspector general decided that the military justice system should be the venue to settle such disputes.
