Progressives, human rights advocates, and journalists responded with outrage on Saturday to a New York Times report that President Donald Trump "has requested the immediate preparation of paperwork needed to pardon several American military members accused or convicted of war crimes."

"desecration of a corpse"

I would volunteer my time as a professional necromancer to solve this, but once the corpse is desecrated you have limited options.

"Progressives, human rights advocates, and journalists responded with outrage..."

The people who whip website forums into a frenzy where people wish "ass cancer" and "dismemberment" upon the president are outraged.

the same people who have convinced themselves that those who disagree with their political views are Russian agents posting from Pooty's secret farm.

LOL

They're not the only ones.

Perhaps it's worth asking if SheepleSchism is outraged that the President of the United States of America is fixin' to pardon cold-blooded killers.

Cali already did that to keep 8 felons from being deported. But yeah, I could use that myself.

And what's with this "unfathomable Evil" crap? Evil is perfectly fathomable, it just takes practice.

Isn't all killing done in cold blood? Or are there cases that make you all warm and fuzzy?

Heck. These guys were even paid by the gov't to do it.

Did Obama pardon all the killers who drone attacked wedding parties or misidentified? Where they even charged?

Yemen. Libya. Syria. Afghanistan. Iraq. Planned Parenthood. lot's of innocent people being killed.

In cold blood even.

Or our Littlefinger.... on Tiny Hands Trump's right hand.

It appears that The Donald could murder someone on 5th Ave., or pardon war criminals, and not lose any votes.

War criminal? The guy hadn't even been found guilty yet and last I checked they were still in discovery. Last update I read was about body cam footage being unearthed.

I'd like to say for the record that nothing surprises me about Trump pardoning genuine war criminals.

Just as I'd like to say for the record that nothing surprised me about Trump separating families and losing 1500 kids.

Just as I'm saying for the record that nothing will surprise me about Trump getting the DOJ to arrest one or two political enemies as soon as Congress and the Courts start penalizing him for ignoring lawful subpoenas and orders.

Trump wants to send a message that murdering brown people is acceptable under his watch. It's a slap in the face to everyone who served honorably. It suggests that Rules of Engagement and orders from your superiors are irrelevant.

"One day, from his sniper nest, Chief Gallagher shot a girl in a flower-print hijab who was walking w/ other girls on the riverbank. She dropped, clutching her stomach, & the other girls dragged her away."

A mass murderer according to Senior Seals: "Would order needless risks, to fire rockets at houses for no apparent reason. He routinely parked an armored truck on a Tigris River bridge & emptied the truck's heavy machine gun into neighborhoods on twith no discernible targets."

"Platoon members said he spent much of his time in a hidden perch with a sniper rifle, firing three or four times as often as other platoon snipers. They said he boasted about the number of people he had killed, including women."

"Two other snipers said, the chief shot an unarmed man in a white robe with a wispy white beard. They said the man fell, a red ------ spreading on his back."

"Gallagher ordered a hatchet & a hunting knife" before 2017 deployment. He texted the man who made them (a Navy Seal veteran) shortly after arriving in Iraq: "I'll try and dig that knife or hatchet on someone's skull!"

May 2017, a SEAL medic was treating a wounded 15 y/o Islamic State fighter. "He's mine," Gallagher said. "Gallagher walked up without a word and stabbed the wounded teenager several times in the neck and once in the chest with his hunting knife, killing him."

He didn't even try to hide the murder of the 15 y/o. He brought other seals around minutes later & took a photo over the body. Later, he texted the photo to a fellow SEAL in California: "Good story behind this, got him with my hunting knife."

Platoon members tried time & time again to report about what he was doing. Praying that higher ups would do something. They were told to "decompress." After he stabbed the 15 y/o: "SEALs called a platoon meeting & discussed how to keep the chief away from anyone he could harm."

SEAL team 7 members filed formal complaints & called for an investigation about the "shocking acts" they had seen their chief commit. Instead of investigating, platoon members were warned "that speaking out could cost them and others their careers."

Gallagher for his part, didn't like all the snitching going on.

Texts: "I just got word these guys went crying to the wrong person. The only thing we can do as good team guys is pass the word on those traitors. They are not brothers at all."

I read this last week and wretched.....Now one of these guys is a new roommate, kid you not. Different platoon but he was a SEAL medic and knows the guy and others like like him. That's his criticism of Obama, that this stuff went on but it became privatized so it was off the books

Somewhere along the line, America ceased being Daenerys Targaryen from season 5 and became Daenerys Targaryen from season 8...

Trump is a anti-Lannister.

He cheats everyone and NEVER pays his debts.

A real hero to Trump voters.

In all this, I mean that Trump is the evil one. The SEAL, I can't say for certain. In the end, I can't blame him, but he has to be subject to the law.

#23. Right on. Guy sounded like a psycho, and we need a judge. You don't want to serve with psychos - they are as much a danger to you as are they they are to the enemy.
