A senior lawmaker is hailing the Marine Corps for reviewing a decade-old case in which members of a MARSOC company were accused of murdering civilians in Afghanistan, and publicly affirming a full exoneration of the unit. But the commanding officer of the unit in question believes the service should go further to show its support.

Rep. Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican and member of the House Armed Services Committee, announced Wednesday he had received a letter from the service confirming the innocence of the Marines assigned to an element they called Task Force Violent.

The letter also promised to follow up with the troops through the Corps’ Wounded Warrior Regiment, tasked with caring for the service’s wounded, ill and injured service members.

The incident in question took place on March 4, 2007, during the first deployment to Afghanistan for Marine Special Operations Company Foxtrot.
