As many of you have heard by now, Navy SEAL and decorated special forces hero Eddie Gallagher is a free man after liberals in the military tried to crucify him for posing with a picture of a dead ISIS Terrorist.
The following is from our friends at Fox News:
Critics attacked CBS’s “60 Minutes” for airing an interview Sunday with Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who spoke to the newsmagazine about the events that resulted in his court-martial.
Gallagher was accused of war crimes stemming from a 2017 deployment to Iraq. He was eventually found not guilty of murder and premeditated murder but was convicted of a lesser charge of posing for a photo with an Islamic State (ISIS) fighter’s corpse.
Officials from “60 Minutes” did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
During Gallagher’s trial over the summer, a key witness for the prosecution — another Navy SEAL — testified to killing the ISIS captive but said he saw Gallagher plunge his knife into the man’s neck. Other members of his platoon struck down claims that Gallagher was a hero who was unfairly punished for making “tough calls.” Instead, they painted him as a “disgraceful” leader who took pleasure in targeting women, children and the elderly.
There had been debate on whether the Navy would strip Gallagher of his Trident pin, ousting him from the prestigious SEALs after he was demoted from chief petty officer to a 1st class petty officer following his July conviction.
President Trump as many of you know DEMANDED that Eddie Gallagher’s rank and medals be restored and given back to him. He’s the commander in chief, and the Secretary of the Navy ultimately resigned after trying to not follow a direct order from the President.
This is all just another part of President Trump draining the swamp, and bringing respectability and notoriety back to our veterans. Something that the left and media has been working diligently to destroy since 2008 when Obama was elected.
