Lt Col Stuart Scheller was sentenced to $5,000 in docked pay and an official letter of reprimand over his public critique of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, qui est parti 13 Américains morts.

Mr Scheller reportedly escaped an additional $5,000 fine after spending nine days in a military prison before the court-martial at Camp Lejeune, Caroline du Nord.

In delivering his sentence, Judge Colonel Glen Hines said he watched all of Mr Scheller’s videos and “saw a man who appeared to be in pain, frustrated and confused," selon Le courrier quotidien.

While Mr Scheller left the court, along with his parents, without making further comment, his attorney Tim Palatore told reporters that the judge’s decision was fair and that they were “very pleased” with the result.

The sentence follows Mr Scheller’s guilty plea on Thursday to six misdemeanour charges, including conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, contempt, manque de respect, désobéissance et manquement aux devoirs.

M. Scheller a pris de l'importance nationale après avoir publié des vidéos sur Facebook et LinkedIn alors que la retraite meurtrière d'Afghanistan a laissé les talibans contrôler le pays avec des milliards de dollars d'équipement militaire américain.

Il a été licencié 27 August after calling on his supporters to help him to “bring the whole f*cking system down”.

Malgré un « ordre de bâillon », il a continué à demander des comptes aux dirigeants de l'armée américaine, dont le secrétaire à la Défense Lloyd Austin et le président des Joint Chiefs Mark Milley, et a annoncé son intention de charger le chef du Commandement central américain, Général Kenneth McKenzie Jr, avec "manquement au devoir".

Mais avant qu'il ne puisse porter ses propres accusations de manquement au devoir, M. Scheller a été placé en garde à vue le 27 September and thrown in the brig ahead of being charged and court-martialed.

Judge Hines said Mr Scheller’s service record was “outstanding” before the series of videos in the aftermath of the chaotic evacuation from Kabul’s airport.

“I don’t think I’ve seen an officer consistently in, as we say, the top three blocks of the Christmas tree. He was on a consistent upward path," il a dit, tel que rapporté par Le courrier quotidien. "[Mais] Those who deviated from standards have to be held accountable," il ajouta.
