MURDERED MARINE’S FAMILY SUING MILITARY OVER ALLEGED COVER-UP!

The family of murdered Marine Greg Buckley just wants answers.  Three days before he was scheduled to come home, in 2012, Lance Cpl. Buckley was killed in Afghanistan, in the one place he was supposed to be safe.

He wasn’t killed in a firefight on a battlefield, or by a roadside bomb while on patrol. The 21-year-old was working out with fellow Marines at the base gym when an Afghan teenager walked in carrying an AK-47 — and emptied the clip, killing Buckley and two others.

Buckley’s family, stonewalled in their search for answers, has since resorted to filing a rare lawsuit against the Marine Corps and Department of Defense. They’re not seeking a financial settlement — they say all they want is information about how their son died in the insider attack. “He shot my son point blank with an AK-47. Shot him four times in his chest and once in his neck. He was in the gym with a pair of shorts and a tank top on,” Buckley’s father Gregory Buckley, Sr. told Fox News. “How is that allowed?”

The New York family’s lawsuit accuses the department of hiding details surrounding Buckley’s death. His father says supervisors ignored warnings and allowed an unsavory Afghan police chief named Sarwar Jan to live on the base.

Jan allegedly was involved in selling drugs, uniforms and weapons to the Taliban and brought young so-called “tea boys” on post to serve as sex slaves. It was one of those alleged “tea boys” who opened fire on the Marines that day in 2012. The shooter, 17 years old at the time, was convicted and sentenced to seven years.

But Buckley’s lawyer says the Marine Corps has been blocking the family’s efforts to get investigative and autopsy reports, which every Gold Star family is entitled to under federal law. “They, like any Gold Star families, are entitled to all relevant information and reports about the death of their son. They don’t need to beg. They don’t need to ask pretty please and they certainly shouldn’t have to bring a lawsuit,” attorney Michael Bowe told Fox News.
