    A BCD panel was convened on Maj Brezler last week in New Orleans and they have recommended to discharge the Major from the Marine Corps with an "honorable discharge." Yet this still may not be the end of the story. There are now politicians involved and they are saying this outcome is not good enough. The Major was deployed to Afghanistan, and got into trouble for using unsecured email to send his former commanding officer classified information alerting him to a corrupt Afghan cop, Sarwar Jan, who had gained access to a Marine base. Less than a month later, a teenage boy kept on the base by Jan grabbed a gun and killed three Marines and seriously wounded a fourth.Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Pete King (R-NY) and FDNY Commissioner Sal Cassano have urged the Marine Corps to clear the record of the Major. Brezler was deployed to Now Zad, Afghanistan, in 2009 as a reservist with the 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines. He was in the U.S. in 2012 when he got an email from his former commanding officer, Capt. Andy Terrell, telling him Sarwar Jan, a corrupt Afghan cop with Taliban ties, had gained access to a Marine base in Afghanistan. Fromhis personal Yahoo email account, Maj Brezler sent Capt Terrell a classified briefing document about Sarwar Jan, hoping it would help run him off the premises. Nearly three weeks after Brezler sent the warning, a 15-year-old boy kept on the base by Jan grabbed an AK-47 and murdered three Marines and seriously wounded a fourth. Brezler soon reported his indiscretion to his superiors, and military investigators opened a probe with his cooperation.
