Skip to comments.Medic testifies that he, not Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, was responsible for ISIS fighter's death

A medic testifying in the trial of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher who is accused of killing an injured ISIS prisoner of war in Iraq has shockingly testified Thursday that he is the one who killed the militant, not Gallagher.
The medic told a court at Naval Base San Diego that he killed the fighter by asphyxiation. He also testified that Gallagher stabbed the fighter, but did not kill him.
Gallagher, 40, has pleaded not guilty to premeditated murder and aggravated assault charges stemming from the alleged killing of a wounded ISIS fighter and alleged instances of firing sniper rounds at civilians in Iraq.
Gallagher was undergoing a medical screening at Camp Pendleton and was in the process of transitioning to a non-combat advisory role for the Navy SEALs when he was taken into custody in September 2018, his brother Sean said. Gallagher had planned to retire in the spring.

Interesting... I thought they learned not to give immunity after Ollie North was given immunity because they hoped he would finger Reagan. Instead he said he did it all.
Why does every freaking post turn into a pissing match between freepers? This is so beyond ridiculous it makes me want to leave.
Kill all terrorists and jihadis period. Anyone who doesn’t believe this dirt bag needed to be put down, needs get the hell off FR. I swear, there are some in here that would defend the 19.
We are in a battle for our very future against an enemy that doesn’t care about rules. To quote my favorite movie “they will not stop until they tear your effing heart out”.
Yeah, I don't think Cory Booker is gonna help out here.
why do you care? terrorist who wants to rape and butcher my children and grandchildren dead.
I was surprised he didnt dismiss for the spying on the defense.
I assume he will let it go to the panel. We will eventually find out if the medics story was known prior to testifying or if it just came out. I cant believe trial counsel would not have brought it out ondirect if he knew.
Its Colonelto you slimeball.
I guess the proper response to you is Lighten up, Francis!. But perhaps youre not a Francis....perhaps more a Walter Mitty type.
It was a real ‘did you order the code red’ moment for the defense however the fact that that particular witness killed the prisoner isn’t going to be enough to overcome the stabbing and the shooting that the witness will have to testify to ....but it is probably enough to get the murder charges tossed by the members. Extremely good work by the defense team.!
The new rules have existed since 1912
Join the military and they will teach you the rules. Repeatedly.
That's what ALL the n00b trolls say, newbie.
No more Homeric heroes or chariots.
Exactly. They should all be summarily executed. Every. last. one.
So, my thread on this had to be deleted, because it was a dupe. One problem, it wasn’t a dupe. And, I specifically didn’t post it in breaking news, as some get their panties in a wad at over use of that.
So, I can’t find my thread (I know, it was deleted) and after much searching, I find this thread. Not on the front page, but by weeding thru the breaking news section.
The story is important...maybe you should have used more keywords and rooms to post it?
I will never lose any sleep after seeing the contractor parts hanging from the bridge in Iraq and the army ops bodies being dragged through the street of mogadishu.
Ah the good old days lasted until people decided to hire mercenaries to protect your borders rather than your own citizens do it and when EVERYONE became too good to pick their own crops, wash dishes, haul trash etc etc etc
Mingle enough ‘outsiders’ with citizens and the takeover becomes easy as one is sponsoring their own demise.
I often say how different it would be if the Indians would have turned back the Mayflower.......instead, they played diplomat and allowed a handful of outlanders take over their land, eventually locking the Indians away ‘for their own good’.
One could point out that leave the borders open like we are and no telling where “WE” will be put ‘for our own good.
Point this little scenario out and ‘they’ scoff.
Stab below the collar bone to release pressure from the chest cavity in order to perform further field surgery, is the way the “stabbing” has been explained.
I wish I could have the opportunity to asphyxiate an isis fighter.... I’m in a mood today.
but that was certainly a stupid comment you made.
its as if you commented without reading the article or knowing the facts
Excellent. Great that he was able to get immunity beforehand. I hope both SEALS will be free and fine.

Or a tracheotomy to insert the breathing tube that the junior Seal later blocked?
