  1. Trump is why an incompetent unqualified unstable draft dodger buffoon should not be president

    • Did you serve , I did and I am telling you the military lawyers try to screw us. Over 100 seals have been taken out of the fight because of JAG and there witch-hunt. Who will fight our enemies?

    • Lmao! Kids got a slowsi picture! Definition of misinformed!

    • Rodney Boehner How is an act of war 1st degree murder? Your comment and your citation is a FAIL. Sorry. And far more innocent people have died just in the last few weeks because of trumps order to remove American troops from Northeast Syria.

    • Poor Barry No it’s not. Did you bother to read the article. Obviously not.

    • Rodney Boehner Where is the proof of Obama executing private citizens on his kill list?

  2. When your own platoon says your guilty its pretty obvious he is guilty obviously kinda hard to defend that

    If you were my friend in combat and I felt you were out of your mind I would let people know so that you may get help.

    • @Sean Durkee You sound stupod and maybe a sociopath.

      @shade38211 That is the Gods honest truth. CNN can out do any network when it comes to news. Since Trump won they have lost ALL credibility. I trust FOX, Huffpost, MSNBC long before CNN. These networks admit they have an agenda. CNN claims they are neutral without bias.

    • What he did was definitely wrong. But soldiers shouldn’t be charged with murder for killing the enemy.

      @oogity-boogity woogity oh, and also, you had me rolling on the floor with that first comment.

      I was howlin.

  4. That looks like the dude from that tv show who was a drunk and his daughter took care of his kids and the house they were called the Gallagher’s too lol

    Imagine what kind of sicko you have to be for your colleagues to say that.

    • @cosMICjester Not a tower of power between th’ ears there are ya.

    • @Bovine One Still, it all stanks enough to have some serious doubts about it all.

    • olrik parlez – I’m not saying that what he did wasn’t wrong but soldiers shouldn’t be charged with murder for killing the enemy.

    • @Gina R
      The Russkie collusion illusion delusion is played out braindead hag. The orange buffoon might be a arrogant man child who throws tantrums like a spoiled 3 year old but but he’s no traitor. The traitors are democrap drones in the borg commie collective.

      Remember billions sent to Iran 10 of it in cash? How bout the 7 Taliban commanders traded for a deserter then calling him a hero. That was your boy bathhouse Barry.

    • @Bovine One Whew…careful with that. The rules and laws concerning war might have a problem concerning your point of view. These laws etc were designed by some pretty bright folks. I don’t think you’d easily debate them.

      wrong. The liberty and security of the United States of America is the reason the Navy was created and the only reason to  maintain it’s existence.

    • Stan Wilson that’s rich..
      I’m hoping Biden is nominated.. he’s the most viable after all..

    • @Stan Wilson He’s not even impeached you dumb oaf. They voted and the papers never made it to the Senate because of abuse of power several times by the House. Which means they only held a vote.

  9. No group of Navy SEALS would make such serious complaints to their superiors against one of their own brothers if it wasn’t true.

  10. Texas Lonestar | December 27, 2019 at 6:35 PM | Reply

    when NAVY SEALS BROTHERS come out against their own it’s a very strong indication that he went beyond few overkills it was just absolute murder spree.. proud of them speaking out against his actions.

    • Texas Lonestar | December 27, 2019 at 7:12 PM | Reply

      @Matthew Hensley read the report before yall talk any further please and that’s just what’s reported

    • @Paula R “His JOB is to kill the enemy.” – Not sure if you know this, but there is an actual difference between killing someone during a fight, and just straight up murder.

      “Do you know how many Americans the enemy killed?” – ..You probably don’t want to compare numbers here.

      “You’d fail as a soldier.” – You’re literally defending a guy who failed as a fucking soldier, Paula.

    • Texas Lonestar ,100% agree with you !! 👍

    • @Paula R
      He was a prisoner and a child, and the man says he killed him to “protect him” from torture. Your job as a soldier is not to murder whoever you feel like. Being so unhinged that you disgust your fellow special ops has nothing to do with being good soldier.

  11. If Gallagher thought this would change how he’d be perceived he misjudged the situation. It’s obvious someone is telling him not to campaign for Trump or this will come up every time.

    • @James JamesBond Right wing media? Lol it was an equal response to the vitriol of the left. You guys would rather defend a dead ISIS terrorist then help out a Navy SEAL. To me that’s ridiculous. Obama dumped Bin Ladens body into the Atlantic without a thought. Was that barbaric?

    • James JamesBond | December 27, 2019 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      Colin Faust American soldiers are professionals with 500 billion dollars backing them and 250 years of history. You don’t have a right at that point to be a savage. You volunteered and took a oath. Yes trump exonerated and the right wing media celebrated this man. The outrage from the left came as a response to these barbaric acts. Just because you hold your soldiers to a higher standard or any standard doesn’t mean you are saying isis or the enemy are any less brutal. You can’t police ISIS but you can make sure your soldiers aren’t out there gleefully killing people as his team testified. Also you seem to think that’s all that guy did. That’s not the only reason I am saying he is unhinged. I believe his teams testimony about him. Seals , soldiers even cops don’t rat out their own unless there is something very wrong.

    • James JamesBond | December 27, 2019 at 10:30 PM | Reply

      Colin Faust How about we actually hold soldiers accountable and not let them slide. That to me is disgusting. You can’t change the past but you can certainly effect the future and present. The man is widely hated because of the testimonies of his team. Why would you hold the word of one solider over a whole team that all agree this man was not fit to serve? Also we don’t need to be in a war to live comfortable we are there for oil and control of a region so don’t give this “they fight for our freedom” crap. If all the soldiers left that region we would still be very comfortable.

    • @Rick B The medic didn’t have to finish him off. What nonsense. You just create narratives in your small mind and run with it don’t you? He was stable and the medic strangled him to “protect him from being tortured for information.” Go read the article you nitwit. So sick of people like you.

    “It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.” William T. Sherman

    • Dominus Vobiscum you missed the whole point of Sherman’s statement.

    • Dominus Vobiscum | December 27, 2019 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      john lin What was that?

    • Dominus Vobiscum that war is hell, it’s not about what he did. He never said he is a saint, he performed his part in the war. But it does not contradict his observation and experience that war is hell. He is saying people who hasn’t been in war doesnt realize what war really entails.

    • Dominus Vobiscum | December 27, 2019 at 8:41 PM | Reply

      @john lin …which is obviously being used to exonerate people like Eddie Gallagher. I don’t think we need to trust Sherman, arguably one of the most evil people in history.

    • Dominus Vobiscum he hates war and will do what it takes to end it. He did what he did to make common people realize what war really is.

  13. “man is the thing a whole bunch of people said he was”… yeah that tracks

  14. Your military creates these monsters and then you’re offended by them being monsters

  15. I see the Whole platoon posing in the picture.

      @Yo Sour as an army vet I’m appalled at your suggestion that we should treat our adversaries like they’re less then human. Those guys are fighting for their beliefs the same way we are fighting for ours, only difference is the victors are the ones that history will remember as being righteous and the losers as evil. If we commit disgusting acts like shooting unarmed civilian sympathizers, piss on corpses and pose for pictures with freshly killed men then we are playing right into the terrorists hands. They see these acts and flood local towns with these images to help recruit young men into their ranks. When Pearl harbor went down did Americans quiver in their boots? No the recruitment offices were flooded with young men enraged that such an act happened on their home soil, you think the people of the Middle East are any different from us in terms of their love for their nations? If you’ve never signed on the dotted line to put your life on the line don’t make stupid suggestions behind a keyboard for those like me who have. This is the USA and we have to show that not only our military might is the greatest on this planet but also our humanity. The biggest blow you can give an enemy combatant aside from a killing one is to treat them with respect and dignity that they wouldn’t expect from men they were thaught were inhumane monsters

    • @emanuel martinez 👏👏👏👏👏👏 DUDE! Every word you wrote is awesome.

      @keriezy thanks I just hate when I hear civilians talk about soldiers like we’re supposed to be heartless killing machines

      @Yo Sour FUCKING take xannie break.

  16. Whatever this guy did had to be extremely toxic and egregious for his team members to come forward.

  17. You block out their faces in their uniforms, then you show clear images of their faces in the interviews. Guys, wtf?

    • Build The Wall With Liberals | December 27, 2019 at 8:05 PM | Reply

      @Mark Lol, yeah, that whole “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and “love thy neighbor” nonsense is just profoundly wicked.

    • @Build The Wall With Liberals Oh yes, because that’s definitely the most profound mark that religion has left on the world. All those millions of people murdered and oppressed? Just a few false starts! Also ignore the fact that every theocracy that ever has or currently exists are so of the most barbaric nations to ever exist.

    • @Build The Wall With Liberals Oh yes, seeking information from a variety of sources is _so_ evil! Instead let’s just listen to what our leaders tell us and not question anything! What fourth estate?

      By the way, I don’t think someone whose username expresses a desire to build a wall out of the corpses of people who disagree with him has any place calling anyone else “evil.” The most evil people in history tend to be jingoistic psychopaths like you.

    • 🤣🤣

    • Build The Wall With Liberals
      First, “love thy neighbor” didn’t extend to anyone outside of god’s chosen tribe.
      But do unto others would not be wise of,moor example, someone would want their hard removed if they stole something.
      This entitles them to remove someone else’s hand?

      Still, neither of these things have anything to do with supernatural beliefs. Nor are any of our secular laws predicated on these principles.

  18. His own team turned him in, enough said

    When people trained to kill say you’ve gone to far, you’ve gone to far.

  20. When an animal like this get’s away with what he has , the woman in his life is living on barrowed time … wait and see.
