Marine Canceled for Criticizing Afghan Withdrawal Will ‘Probably’ Run for Office in ’24

'Biden has a lot of problems, and he's not... very good... '

Former Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, Jr., who dared criticize the military establishment for its disastrous pullout from Afghanistan, said that he will likely seek an elected office in 2024, America’s Voice News reported.

Scheller has also committed to putting together a cohort of candidates for both the Senate and the House of Representatives that is dedicated to leadership, not DC swamp life.

His “Votes for Vets” coalition includes 20 House candidates and five Senate candidates.

“I am a conservative, but I think we need leaders and not politicians,” Scheller said.

Though Schelling admitted that he does not currently have “the physical, mental, spiritual endurance right now to jump into a race,” he opened the door for a future run.

“So what I plan on doing is supporting this coalition that I built — and it’s still growing — and I’ll probably jump into a race in ’24,” he said.

Schelling both reiterated his respect for the office of the President while slamming Joe Biden in particular for his poor treatment of uniformed soldiers in favor of high-ranking career officers.

Scheller said he has “a lot of respect for the office of the president,” though in his opinion “Biden has a lot of problems, and he’s not… very good.”

But, though the President can only be held accountable at election time, barring extreme circumstances, Scheller emphasized the need to hold military bureaucrats accountable for their disastrous tenures.

“Where we are failing wars is at the operational level and the strategic level,” Schelling said. “And that’s the general-officer-to-the-political-realm link that’s just consistently failing. And I think that starts with accountability. I think if you hold senior leaders accountable, you’d be more effective.”

Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, has received little to no backlash for his disastrous operation, according to Schelling.
