Fired Navy SEAL team leaders say they’re being scapegoated after high-profile misconduct cases | CBS News

The two senior leaders of a Navy SEAL team who were fired in a highly unusual move say they are being made scapegoats due to pressure on the maritime branch to bring its commandos in line. SEAL Team Seven’s commanding officer, Commander Edward Mason, and the top enlisted leader, Command Master Chief Hugh Spangler, filed a complaint with the Department of Defense Inspector General to demand an independent agency investigate their firings on  September 6.

Mason and Spangler believe they were targeted because both are nearing retirement and Green wanted to show he was cracking down on the special warfare community.  They also believe Navy leadership put their team at risk when the leaders were sent home and immediately replaced with new commanders.
