(CNN) -- In an action unprecedented during 12 years of war in Afghanistan, the commandant of the Marine Corps is firing two top generals for failing to protect their Marines and their base in southern Afghanistan from a Taliban attack. The commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. James F. Amos, has agreed to a finding that Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant "did not take adequate force protection measures" at Camp Bastion last year, the Marine Corps announced Monday.
