Today’s story in the NY Times is sickening. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/27/us/navy-seals-edward-gallagher-video.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage
For those w/o a NY Times subscription, here’s some highlights:
“The guy is freaking evil,” Special Operator 1st Class, Craig Miller told investigators.
In one instance, captured on a SEAL team member’s helmet video, he fatally stabbed a wounded captive that had been previously sedated, then posed over it to announce a “re-enlistment” ceremony, holding the captive’s corpse by the hair as if he were clutching a hunting trophy.
“I was listening to it, and I was just thinking, like, this is the most disgraceful thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Miller, who has since been promoted to chief, told investigators.
Special Operator 1st Class Corey Scott, a medic in the platoon, told the investigators: “You could tell he was perfectly OK with killing anybody that was moving.” “The guy was toxic” said Special Operator 1st Class Joshua Vriens. They described how their chief targeted women and children and boasted that “Burquas were flying”. Asked whether the chief had a bias against Middle Eastern people, Scott replied, “I think he just wants to kill anybody he can.”
The good order and discipline of the United States military is being destroyed by a corrupt, incompetent and immoral commander in chief.
