I'll never understand how he can refer to them as cowards when they are basically confronting him. I guess to each their own....
There's a whole bunch of comments supporting it because "Those guys became public during the trial".Fuck him and whatever grifting dickheads are enabling this shit. Highlighting your fellow SEALs, including one currently at a SMU, is some absolute psycho behavior.
I can't say I've done anything close to some of the shit Eddie has done in his career.If Eddie hasn't become PNG yet, he's sure trying to.
Fuck this dude.
‘Cowards’ — Eddie Gallagher strikes back at the SEALs who testified against him
he should know which battles to pick, and which to ignore.And....another one bites the dust.
Navy Admiral Who Clashed With Trump Over Disciplining SEAL to Retire
THE COMMANDER OF the Navy SEALs who found himself at odds with President Donald Trump over disciplining a notorious member of his force has informed the Navy that he will step down a year early, according to three people familiar with the decision.
Rear Adm. Collin Green, commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command, will leave his post in September, two of the people familiar with his decision said.
Green was widely viewed as a reformer who was willing to hold his command accountable. His departure follows two years during which he sought to repair the vaunted military unit’s image after a slew of criminal charges against SEALs, including war crimes, murder, drug use, and sexual assault. Green had publicly told his force that the SEALs had a “problem” and that some members of the unit were “ethically misaligned.”
He just put on his second star in 2017. There's 2 star billets he theoretically could have filled in multiple commands.In my continued effort to give the NSW boys credit when it’s due- I respect Admiral Green for making an effort to right his ship. Retiring (really resigning) is probably the only real means of protest he feels like he has left after POTUS undercut him so publicly. He would have zero career progression. Next 3 star slot for him would be JSOC and that won’t be going to a SEAL for the foreseeable future. Only other two 3 star slots I could think of for career progression are the Vice and Deputy Commander slots at HQUSSOCOM. And he ain’t getting those approved after all this. So he’s stuck.
Honestly, that is fucked up.Gallagher is on 60 mins tonight....
(edite) it was meh, focused on the murder charge itself and bad handling by NCIS. One thing brought up was the search warrant on the house, NCIS conducted the search warrant with a tactical team, only people home were the two sons. Pretty hard hit on a target where the suspect is in custody, and knowing the only people living there are a wife and two sons.
