The on going case of the Navy Seal, Edward Gallagher, who has been spending his days either in jail or court is finally coming to an end. He was found not guilty on all accounts of killing a terrorist. The only thing he can now be charged with is the taking of a photo of the terrorist.. Since he has been incarcerated longer than any conceivable proper punishment for the photo he may be spending the night back home in his own bed. youtu.be...

It’s utterly ridiculous that he had to go through this to begin with.
The ROE should reflect the government of the theatre.
If your in Afghanistan, you’re ROE should be the same as enemies.
Do you think they worry about “court martials” or how they treat wounded Americans.
They’re animals.
Treat them like the animals they are.
These dudes are ordered to defeat the enemy.
Yet they second guess every trigger pull because some suite who’s lived an Ivy League life for their entire 65 years thus far, never had to struggle with anything asides from sliding their fat arse into a pair of slacks.

People whom are clueless as to what takes place on the battlefield or in hostile territory, make it so our boys are scared to do their job.

Great news and thank you for posting it!!!

Gallagher is an actual hero and being treated like that I thought was shameful, to say the least.

Now maybe some legal problems for the liars that accused him of those crimes...

Or possibly some more time over in the sandbox with him as their Commander.

I'm glad justice was served. I would never say these guys are angels, far from it. but they do a job that would make most of us puke during the briefing. Until you have walked a mile in their boots, judgement is an opinion. (IMHO)

Anyone know who pushed for him to be charged with murder?

Now that is a good idea!
Send them back over under his command,
Latrine duty maggots ...get your rubbers on.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say the people serving under him who said he killed an enemy combatant, etc.

Especially in light of the medic on scene who testified that he was actually the one who did it.

He was framed by some wimps that didn't like Gallagher's leadership style.

Again, I sincerely hope that they find themselves under his command again.

Right, he stabbed the guy a bunch of times, that was no lie.

“The chief was turned in by members of his platoon, who told investigators he had become obsessed with killing and had bragged about shooting scores of people in Iraq.

Chief Gallagher has pleaded not guilty and denied all the charges. His lawyers and supporters say he is being unfairly prosecuted simply for doing his job well, and that his accusers were disgruntled subordinates who could not meet his high standards.”

NY Times

Make what you want of it, but just know he’s a Navy Seal that’s been fighting people that would record cutting his head off and send it to his family.

Once, when he was already dead.

That is not what I read, why stab a dead guy? the intent was there.
Anyway, it is what it is. Actually the medic testified he blocked the breathing tube "after" the hero stabbed him.



Special Operator 1st Class Corey Scott, a SEAL Team Seven medic, revealed during cross-examination in the courtroom at Naval Base San Diego that he killed the fighter by asphyxiation. Scott testified that he saw Gallagher stab the fighter, but then he himself held his thumb over a breathing tube that had been inserted into the militant's mouth.

The rest of his unit. He killed this guy in cold blood while the guy was being attended to by a medic.

The Navy SEALs is no longer made up of quiet professionals.

I've seen so many stories of criminal activity, murders, theft, cover-ups, and so forth.

Top that off with the diva attitude some of these guys seem to have where they need to write a book or make a movie about their exploits.

The Navy needs to return discipline and quiet professionalism standards to the SEALs before the organization breaks.

The guy was an enemy combatant.

I'm assuming you don't know what that means.

Ever served?

Right cupcake, show me in the regs where it says you should kill incapacitated wounded prisoners receiving treatment.

As it should be. Is he also off the dishonorable discharge hook with this outcome, or will the POTUS need to restore his honors?

So you haven't.

That answers my question and thanks for playing.
