    Marine major who set classified over personal cell will be retained

    Marine major who set classified over personal cell will be retained

    This guy used his private email to send classified material to help disrupt a blue on green attack. He self reported and the Marines tried to use administrative procedures to dismiss him from the Corps. The board of officers decided to retain him.

    A Marine who used his personal email account to send a classified warning to his colleagues about a corrupt Afghan police chief should be allowed to continue serving, a board of military officers has determined in the high-profile case.

    Maj. Jason Brezler sent the warning in July 2012, about two weeks before a teenage boy working for the chief opened fire on unarmed Marines in a fatal attack on a military base in southern Afghanistan.

    Brezler, a Marine reserve officer and member of the New York City Fire Department, reported his action to his commanders after the attack, and they sent him to an administrative board of inquiry to determine whether he should be discharged.

    The new determination by a panel of three Marine colonels last week marks the second time that a board of inquiry has reviewed the case. A board of officers found in December 2013 that the Marine Corps should end Brezler’s career, prompting him to sue the service and allege that he was being punished for communicating with a member of Congress, Rep. Peter T. King (R.-N.Y.), about the incident.

    District Judge Joseph F. Bianco ruled on Brezler’s behalf in December 2016, finding that the Navy Department had prevented Brezler from fully litigating his claims of retaliation.

    The Marine Corps brought him to another board of inquiry last week, but the results were different this time.

    A work sheet detailing the board’s findings obtained by The Washington Post shows that the three colonels substantiated a failure on Brezler’s part to “properly discharge the duties expected of an officer of his grade” and obey a regulation that requires classified information to remain on “official premises."
