Adam Kokesh Update: Marines "pussed out"
Again, slightly OT, although former Sgt. Adam Kokesh received an honorable discharge when he was released from active duty [into the Individual Ready Reserve or IRR], a U.S. Marine Corps' administrative discharge panel in Kansas City recommended downgrading it to "General, Under Honorable Conditions," rather than "Other Than Honorable" as originally proposed.
Kokesh, of course, succinctly analyzed the decision:
"They pussed out and took the easy way out. They could've taken a firm stance one way or the other," Kokesh told RAW STORY Tuesday. "If they really believed in what they believed, (an other-than-honorable discharge) would've been appropriate."
Plus, the Marine Corps is being ridiculed all over the country, not only for stupidity, but hypocrisy.
It's time for BG Darrell Moore to restore the well-deserved "common sense" reputation of the Marine Corps and reject the panel's recommendation, leaving former Sgt. Kokesh's honorable discharge intact.
