SEP 21
Description Community

Today on the RealClearDefense podcast “Hot Wash” RCD editor David Craig, contributor John Waters, and host John Sorensen speak with retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller, about holding the political and military leadership accountable for the chaotic withdrawal and ultimate Taliban victory in Afghanistan. Scheller, an infantry officer who in part became well known for viral videos on Facebook in which he criticized command for the pull out, is now the author of a new memoir looking at his 17 years in the corps, Crisis of Command: How We Lost Trust and Confidence in America’s Generals and Politicians. Can there be accountability for the failures in Afghanistan?
