Army Investigating Anonymous 6,300-Word Screed Claiming Corruption Undermined Green Beret Training Standards | Task & Purpose

The Army’s John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, is melting down over a single email. According to the Associated Press, the command is currently investigating who authored an anonymous mass-emailing that accused its leaders of “moral cowardice” — and of turning the prized command into an ineffective rubber-stamp for subpar candidates to join its elite Green Beret Special Forces groups.

The 6,300-word, heavily bulleted, and richly detailed screed — reportedly mass emailed to both active-duty and veteran members of the U.S. special operations community on Nov. 26 and first published by SOFREP, declared that SWCS “has devolved into a cesspool of toxic, exploitive, biased and self-serving senior Officers who are bolstered by submissive, sycophantic, and just-as-culpable enlisted leaders.”
