A Marine Corps whistleblower says the Pentagon is investigating whether higher-ups retaliated against him for filing complaints against the Marine commandant.
The "semper fidelis" devotion of John M. Dowd is a major reason he finds himself locked in battle against the highest levels of the Marine Corps, including the commandant, Gen. James F. Amos, whom he accuses of misconduct.
It was interesting to read the explanation for Gen. James F. Amos' frustration with the decision of Lt. Gen. Waldhauser not to "crush" the Marines ("Marine Corps drops Taliban urination desecration case; commandant saves face," Web, Sept. 7). Perhaps it was the same kind of frustration the Marines felt when the enemy had blown one of their comrades away and hung his leg from a tree.
The Marine Corps has suddenly dropped criminal charges against an officer in the infamous Taliban urination video case, heading off what promised to be an embarrassing pretrial hearing for the Corps’ commandant Wednesday.
A U.S. Marine officer who led snipers shown in a 2011 video urinating on the corpses of military-age males in Afghanistan will be court-martialed, the Marine Corps has announced.
Capt. Clement argued that his job that day was radio operator and that the patrol was supervised by another Marine.
He said all evidence shows that Capt. Clement was not present at the desecration and did not know about the video, making it impossible for him to stop it.
