A U.S. Marine who sent a classified document from his personal email account is facing discharge from the corps, even though the email was intended as an urgent warning that lives were at stake in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, the Daily Beast reported.

In the investigation, two generals have ruled against Marine Reserves Maj. Jason Brezler, who has been deployed four times between Afghanistan and Iraq, even though mistakes were found in the testimony and the 451-page Board of Inquiry transcript had 1,548 sections marked "[inaudible]."

Brezler had received notice from a colleague about Sarwar Jan, a narcotics and arms trafficker and conspirator with the Taliban who had resurfaced. He is also a protégé of an accused drug lord with connections to then Afghan president, Hamid Karzi, but had been pushed from his post as a district police chief by Brezler and Marine Maj. Andrew Terrell.

But in 2012, Brezler received an email from Terrell to his Yahoo account saying, "IMPORTANT: SARWAR JAN IS BACK!!!" He was requesting a paper that had been written on Jan which may have proved useful.

Brezler immediately sent the paper giving no thought to its classification, according to the Daily Beast.

"I just reacted the same way that I would in a gunfight; the same way I would at a fire," he said in court papers. "I just immediately reacted."

Ultimately, the paper was unable to avert the killing of nine Marines facilitated by Jan.

Brezler was reprimanded for the security breach, then ultimately investigated as news of it emerged.

Six Marines testified on behalf of Brezler, a number of whom also testified on his behalf with regard to the particulars of the case.

"In a twist, the intelligence officer who prepared the Jan report left the Marines and went to work for the State Department. Imagine if one of her reports for her new job is found in the email of former Secretary of State Clinton," the Daily Beast wrote.

Brezler is currently serving as a member of Rescue 2 of the New York Fire Department.

A retired firefighter saw him the other day and asked him a question that many others have raised, "Hey, Jason, what did you do that Hillary didn't?" the Daily Beast reported.
