A Marine Corps reserve officer who leaked classified information to warn fellow troops about an insider attack should be allowed to continue serving, a military panel has determined.
Maj. Jason Brezler faced a second board of inquiry in New Orleans last week after spending six years fighting to reverse his 2013 discharge. His original board’s punishment was thrown out by a U.S. district court in 2016 when a judge ruled Brezler did not have access to records he needed to mount a proper defense.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Board finds that none of the reasons listed above warrant Maj. Brezler’s separation from the naval service and recommends closing the case,” the new decision read.
Stars and Stripes reports:
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 King, R.-N.Y., about the incident.
“I am grateful beyond words for the opportunity to once again serve as a United States Marine,” Brezler said in a statement provided through his civilian attorney, Michael Bowe. “I love the Marine Corps, am committed to its Marines and mission, and can’t wait to contribute again.”
After sending classified documents over an insecure network to warn about an insider threat, Maj. Jason Brezler faced discharge from the Marine Corps.
He challenged the decision and a panel of military officers ruled in his favor.https://t.co/CU1IoTtgsy
