Today we're going to dive into the case of Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher and his alleged war crimes. This video was created and uploaded before his hearing the other day so more information has been released since then. His trial date has been pushed back a few more months than what I say in the video.

For anyone showing up to this video late, Eddie is already free. 6 of the 7 charges were dropped and he is now a free man. He was only charged with "posing with a war casualty in an unofficial photo", but he didn't serve any time for that charge due to him already being imprisoned for longer than the sentence of the conviction.

more than that, they gave him the max sentence they could and tried to bust him down to an E1 and tried to take his trident away. Even though almost everyone in the platoon was in the pictures and none of them got charged besides Eddie.

As a Marine and combat veteran I believe and taking it to the bad guy. Big time- our job is to break shit and kill people not nation building. We are warriors for our nation and we have to do the right thing for our teams and fellow servicemen and women. That said, I'd like to point out (not making excuses) war sucks and it should suck. The "greatest Generation" did some pretty awful things, things far worse than anything I have heard that this SEAL was supposed to have done and it worked. We didn't revert into some awful nation we didn't become barbaric. I worked closely with many teams and I have my beliefs of what went on but I will keep those thoughts to myself now and always. I wasn't a SEAL having friends there and working very closely with them doesn't mean a lot they fight their war and I will not disparage them ever. I'd like to thank all of them and anyone reading these comments that served and you Donut for serving our nation. 7:51 is all you need to know. I had a mom once give me the best medal for valor I ever got. She wrote me a card and it said (I have it framed right here) "My Sean told me stories bout you and I hated you. I thought you were the devil sent to harm my son and I was very scared for him around you. However, he loved you and always defended how mean you were. I just spoke to him on the phone (as we were rotating back) and he said if it wasn't for you and how hard you were none of you would have made it. I love you now and if you ever make it to Missouri you will always have a home with us." Love Mom. Nothing given to me by command or anyone for that matter meant as much.

I can understand how Eddie felt, I was never accused of war crimes as Eddie but I have been in a position where a low ranking member made up absolute lies about me because I worked him harder than some others and it got back to my supervisor and I was interviewed about the accusations and it pissed me off really bad and I felt like strangling the little lying bastard but then I would lose rank if I did that. So the little shit was assigned to another platoon but I sure let the LPO and LCPO know what was coming their way. A year later he was kicked out with a BCD, no surprise.

I will say- I believe the Chief to be an honorable man who when confronted with a guy out of the fight did what came naturally to him he was first and foremost a Corpsman. I have known some hard ass docs and they would hammer someone to protect their Marines. That said, when it came down to it every single one of them was a compassionate and good soul that helped people that were hurt. Hard to explain but it is ingrained in their DNA it seems. For those who do not know corpsmen- We as Marines say- Corpsmen are- Usually a young, long haired, bearded, Marine-hatin' Sailor with certain medical skills, who will go through the very gates of Hell to get to a wounded Marine.. We love our Docs- always.

Just came across this. Great piece. If you haven't committed the same efforts to clear the MARSOC 3, please do. It's a tragic case of special operators (heroes) who are being denied due process, having their lives put on hold, and being charged for murder. All evidence exonerates them, but the Navy and JAG just doesn't care.

Jesus Christ. NO ONE is saying he didn't deserve to die, or that he wasn't the enemy. Enough with all that bullshit. You can't expect warriors in combat to be angels, and everyone knows how the Geneva Convention makes them go out of their way, unnecessarily at times. He shouldn't have gone to prison for first degree murder. That being said, if we haven't abolished or ratified the Geneva Convention yet, what apparently happened was he shot him, and then went up close to knife him. Dont get triggered by this, but some people see that as cold blooded, a sadistic satisfaction, rather than hot blooded war killing. Still doesn't deserve a murder sentence. He was convicted of posing with the body. Hes bloodthirsty, but it didn't go to far where he is a real danger to people on our side or to commit mlre outright true unjustified acts of violence. Then again they cant just pretend the Geneva Convention doesn't exist. Then his buddy said it wasn't Gallagher, but that he strangled him, out of mercy so Iraqis wouldn't do worse to him.

Thanks for doing this, it was nice to see and outside source look at this from a matter of fact point of view. I fully agree that NCIS (NIS when I was in the service) overreaches. I felt their impact as I was accused of some really petty stuff on only the word of a single NCS officer. Nothing came of it as it was eventually found out he lied, nothing happened to him but my friends and I had a nearly 2 month long period where we were presumed guilty. Good video, except for the crayon part, Semper Fi.

Either way it doesn't matter, everything we say here is hearsay until the court decides his fate.

I'm a veteran, and my wife, who has never served, loves the TV show NCIS. But she doesn't understand why I have reservations or why I question things that happen on the show. And this video touched on something I think is absolutely and unequivocally essential to the UCMJ, and that is the idea of reform. The idea of a jury of one's peers is phenomenal. And I can even get behind keeping a jury of service members so that the context of the engagement or offense is understood and common language can be established among jury members. But if you look at it, court is one of the *only* areas where the military refuses to utilize contractors or civilian employees for critical roles. Such as, for example, a defense attorney. That is absolute horse shit. In a similar fashion, the military can deem a trial so essential to national security that media of any kind is not allowed in the chamber *at all*, and attendees are kept to a minimum of allowed items on their person. This means the forfeiture of private property if civilians are in attendance. And not private property of the 9mm variety. The kind where pen and paper aren't allowed. People like to think we are the land of the free. And we as civilians are. But sometimes our service members are called to protect the very freedoms they themselves are denied in essential, life shaping moments. If you are thinking about enlisting, just remember that the moment you do, you become a unit, and not a person.
@mwduck Aylar önce
The accused person in a court-martial is always free to hire a civilian defense counsel. All are entitled to representation by a judge advocate. If you hire a civilian, you can have both. We have good reasons for keeping national security cases out of the public domain. As I'm sure you know, the government has to put on evidence to make its case. When the evidence is classified, it has be treated and protected like all classified material.

On July 2, 2019, they acquitted him on six of the seven original charges but found him guilty of the seventh charge of "wrongfully posing for an unofficial picture with a human casualty". That charge carried a maximum prison sentence of four months. Since Gallagher had already served more time during his pre-trial confinement, he was released. Then President Trump pardoned him later that year

Thanks. You did a great job or reporting this "judicial crime". It comes down to You can't please everybody all the time. The Squad he inherited always had the worse ratings until Eddie took over. They excelled. The bitched because they were in a combat zone ..even though Eddie agreed to send them back for R&R every other week..while Eddie stayed the entire time. Eventually , one by one the 4 team members recanted their stories. Even with this, NCIS Still pursued charges. EVEN after Trump Stepped in basically and say Cease and desist, higher ranks still gave Eddie a hard time. SEAL teams are normally TIGHT. sometimes, its rare, you get some malcontent who doesn't want to work hard.

@thetute59 3 yıl önce
Yeshua is Lord. Eddie was only found guilty for posing in an inappropriate picture. However, he already spent so much time that he served his sentence twice (and therefore was free to go). One witness later testified that eddie didnt kill the isis fighter at all. The witness apparently said that he himself (the witness) killed the ISIS-fighter. He did so in order to prevent the ISIS-soldier being tortured to death by iraqi forces. Basicly a mercy killing. Hope this helps.

This reminds me of the British Army Officer Brian Wood who led a bayonet charge against terrorist forces at the Battle of Danny Boy. Years after the battle, he found out that allegations of war crimes were being brought against him. Eventually, he was acquitted and it turned out that the lawyer who brought forth the allegations was just looking to make a quick buck by winning this case when all of the evidence had long since been lost. Just really sucks to see decorated war heroes not being giving their due just because of some assholes that don’t like them.

@@liam9431 funny... I thought all of that was saved for the higher ups with all the scandals they have had. Just in case you are in the crowd of, " he did this shit": I side with Eddie. There is next to nothing that can prove any of this happened other than what some disgruntled squadmates of his say. Nobody else can confirm this. Those people should be dishonorably discharged or at the very least court martialed. They have tried to ruin his life over him being, "too harsh and demanding". It's just a bunch of bullshit if you ask me. Everyone else loves him and vouches for him except for a couple guys who have an issue being under his command.

In the military you’re Presumed Guilty The military justice system is not only complex, but it also has blatantly unfair aspects that you simply cannot ignore. The law says that you're “innocent until proven guilty,” but military law enforcement, commanders, convening authorities, and prosecutors often think differently.

I was in Iraq and one of our e5 team leaders thought it was funny to tie a hand grenade to someone’s door in a fashion where when he knocked on the door and they opened it the grenade would drop the spoon and fall on the ground, that is a war crime and he paid for it, also had someone come forward saying while he was in Afghanistan he ran down some people with an lmtv but I was not around for that

One of the hardest aspect of being a civilized soldier fighting terrorists is that you have to follow a set of rules while your enemies are free for all. you have to move and treat the enemy based on the guidelines set by war time laws, meanwhile your enemy doesn't have those rules to follow and just basically executes people for being Christians. with those in mind, you can't really blame the soldiers if they just up and say "an eye for an eye" and do some stuff that are against the wartime law.

@TylerGrey21 3 yıl önce
For those who don’t have any military experience, and I’m surprised Donut didn’t know this because of his service, the Carl Gustav is a “recoilless rifle”, which i *believe* is an 84mm rocket. Largely used for Anti-Tank capabilities and other armor, and there’s a buncha different rockets. H.E.A.T. rounds are High Explosive Anti- Tank and H.E.D.P are High Explosive Dual Purpose. These rockets can be massively disturbing to the operator of the Gustav. If you are to shoot more than like four or five in a period of 24 hours, you can have damage done to your head and internal organs. Doesn’t happen often, just thought I’d clear that up for anyone who doesn’t know why that Officer were to say that him making his SEALs shoot that Carl Gustav a dozen times would be too disciplinary. Even then, sack up, you’re in country. Get fucked. Go Gallagher.

@larss337 3 yıl önce
I know guys who used the 84mm CarlGustaf. It's the propellant going off next to your head that is the problem. Operators sometimes gets nosebleeds after a few shots and there have even been cases of concussion. Is very individual how you react, to some people 12 shots in 24 hours can be really bad. Now, in a war shit happens and I'm sure those 12 shots were not fired just for fun.
@etvonrashke3763 3 yıl önce
I was ordered to fire the 84mm twice in 1988 without hearing protection. My ears are still ringing. 12 times would be harsh treatment in my opinion. Even with double plugging my nose would usually start to bleed after 5 or 6 shots with Gustav or 106mm recoiless.
