The Marine Corps announced Tuesday it was releasing the officer it jailed for allegedly violating a gag order that prevented him from posting on social media after he criticized military and civilian leaders for the United States’ botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. “Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. is being released from confinement today, Oct. 5, 2021, as a result of a mutual agreement between Lt. Col. Scheller, his Defense counsel, and the Commanding General, Training Command,” spokesman Capt. Sam Stephenson said in a statement. “No additional details regarding the agreement may be released at this time.”
