Staff Sgt. Joseph Chamblin, one of several Marine Corps soldiers convicted in 2012 for having recorded themselves urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, had his conviction overturned this week because an Obama-appointed official had attempted to rig his trial.
This stunning reversal revolves around the actions of Gen. James F. Amos, whom then-President Barack Obama nominated to serve as the commandant of the Marine Corps in 2010.
Two years later, Amos used his influence to rig a trial against Chamblin, who was convicted in December of 2012 and sentenced to 30 days in confinement, a reduction in pay and a demotion for his actions.
What neither Chamblin nor many others realized at the time was that Amos had illegally and maliciously led a campaign to destroy him and the other participants.
It took years for this truth to emerge, but we now know without a shred of doubt that after Amos appointed then-Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser to investigate the cases in 2012, Amos specifically told him that he wanted Chamblin and the other participants “crushed,” according to The Washington Post.
Moreover, when Waldhauser, who now serves as a four-star general overseeing U.S. Africa Command, told Amos that he had opted against court-martialing Chamblin and his peers, the commandant got angry and threatened to kick him off the case.
“I responded, ‘No, I’m not going to do that,’ stating that I did not believe any of the cases warranted General Court-Martial,” Waldhauser reportedly wrote in a statement.
