Sgt. Gary Stein Discharged for Criticizing Obama

The Marine Corps said Wednesday that it has decided to discharge Sgt. Gary Stein for his criticism of President Barack Obama on Facebook. The Corps will give Stein a less-than-honorable discharge for violating Pentagon policy limiting speech of service members. The San Diego-area Marine argued that he was exercising his free speech when he wrote on his Facebook page, "Screw Obama and I will not follow all orders from him."

Stein's discharge will mean he loses all benefits. U.S. District Judge Marilyn Huff ruled that the military has the right to respond to Stein's online comments in a case that has called into question the Pentagon's policies regarding social media and the limits regarding the speech of active duty military personnel.
