Yesterday, Trump pardoned Edward Gallagher over Pentagon objections:
- He shot a girl in a flower-print hijab who was walking with other girls.
- Stabbed a wounded teen to death as he was being treated by medics.
- Shot an unarmed man in a white robe.
Gallagher "routinely parked an armored truck on a Tigris River bridge and emptied the truck’s heavy machine gun into neighborhoods on the other side with no discernible targets."
And Gallagher was just one of three Trump pardoned.
One murdered two civilians.
Another killed an unarmed Afghan.
And Gallagher who had been demoted.
Imagine how the seven Navy SEALs who reported their platoon chief feel today, after risking their careers to report Gallagher's crimes -- despite threats made by their troop commander.
Update: The Navy plans to eject Gallagher from the SEALs despite Trump's pardon. While it doesn't entail a reduction in rank it effectively ends his career. h/t @ChiefBowser nytimes.com/2019/11/19/us/…
