Watch the video. Chief Gallagher says he was frightened (terrified) of the man (child) on the ground who, though obviously unconscious, represented an extreme physical threat to SEAL Team 7.
A few years ago, Mike Harris, Jim Hanke and I met with SEAL commanders from Afghanistan, who told us they were forced to (XXXXX).
Then we have the rekilling of bin Laden, a CIA operative and the murder of the SEALs involved in a helicopter crash.
Time to clean house. It has long been obvious that America’s military actions in the Middle East and Afghanistan have been wrought with war crimes and corruption, massive drug trading, systemized child rape, oil theft, training and protecting terrorists.
Even before Trump, the disgusting coward and draft dodger that he is, stepped in, thing were wrong. What we want now is to hear everything, see the files and see the Special Operations community step up and deal with the problem itself, either that, or skulk away into the shadows, fakes and cowards.
The entire military community is on trial here.
We assume we are seeing a murder. We see Gallagher over a young, perhaps a teen, perhaps Jewish teen, who is wounded, semi-conscious. We see Gallagher get up from the prisoner, turn off the camera and then, according to testimony, Gallagher murders the helpless person on the ground, someone Gallagher was supposed to be giving medical aid for.
Make your own decisions.
What we know is this, most ISIS fighters are simply kids hired and brought to Syria and Iraq to support their families. The dead child here was paid by US ally Saudi Arabia, armed by the US, and fought to support US policy in Iraq or Syria or both.
He died fighting for the CIA, seemingly killed, if we can believe this video, by someone Donald Trump has chosen to brand a hero.
Go to discussion boards to hash it out.
Washington (CNN)Members of SEAL Team 7 Alpha Platoon described their platoon leader, retired Special Operations Chief Eddie Gallagher, as “toxic” and “evil,” according to video recordings of the interviews obtained by The New York Times.
Gallagher’s war crimes case gained national attention after President Donald Trump controversially intervened on his behalf, ignoring Pentagon leaders who had told the President such a move could damage the integrity of the military judicial system.
“The guy is freaking evil,” Special Operator First Class Craig Miller said of Gallagher during his interview with Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents, the Times reported.
“You could tell he was perfectly O.K. with killing anybody that was moving,” Special Operator First Class Corey Scott said of his former platoon leader, the newspaper reported.
“The guy was toxic,” Special Operator First Class Joshua Vriens told investigators, the report said.
In the videos obtained by the Times, the platoon members accuse Gallagher of shooting at a 12-year-old, refer to Gallagher as a “psychopath,” and tell of rumors that Gallagher had targeted civilians.
The video interviews were included in a hoard of Navy investigative materials the Times received about the prosecution of Gallagher, who was accused of war crimes. They provide rare insight into the elite force with a code of silence — and into the men of Alpha Platoon, SEAL Team 7 who have never spoken publicly about the case against their former platoon leader. The SEALs declined to comment to the Times.
