Pentagon launches investigation into Marine general’s alleged retaliation
The Pentagon’s top watchdog organization has launched an investigation into whether a three-star Marine Corps general retaliated against a lower-ranking officer who warned Marines in Afghanistan about a potential threat posed to them by an Afghan police chief 17 days before an on-base shooting killed three of them.
The Defense Department Inspector General’s office opened the investigation against Lt. Gen. Richard P. Mills, commanding general of Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North, of New Orleans, according to an Aug. 19 memo sent from the IG’s office to the lower-ranking officer, Maj. Jason Brezler. The watchdog will examine whether Mills violated the Defense Department’s directive guaranteeing protection to whistleblowers in the military by ordering Brezler to appear before an administrative board that met in December 2013 and recommended he be discharged.
Mills, who commanded all Marines in southern Afghanistan for a year spanning 2010 and 2011, did not respond to an e-mail. A spokesman for the general, Adam Bashaw, referred comment to the Defense Department IG. Bridget Serchak, a spokesman for the watchdog, said the office as a matter of policy does not confirm if investigations are ongoing.
