Government Witness Says He Killed ISIS Fighter, Not Defendant

A government witness dropped a bombshell Thursday at the court-martial of a Navy SEAL accused of murder. Another Navy SEAL said he was the one who executed an ISIS prisoner in Iraq. The stunning admission on the stand came from Corey Scott, a prosecution witness. 

Scott said he killed the injured teenage ISIS fighter, not Navy SEAL Chief Edward Gallagher, who's accused of premeditated murder. Under cross examination, Scott said he held his thumb over his tracheal tube "until he quit breathing."

Scott received immunity in exchange for his testimony. In court, the prosecutor accused him of lying on the stand to protect Gallagher and Scott admitted he does not want to see Gallagher go to jail.

Dude got immunity for his testimony, then took the stand and said he did it himself. 

That's a friend right there.

That's right. 

Something that has long bothered me is, we expect our fighting men and women to go into battle and kill. Then the "elite" armchair quarterback them. 

War is Hell, plain and simple. You decide to fight, f--king fight. Let your warriors do their jobs. Make it so fast, so ruthless that others will think twice before they poke the bear. 

But now we expect them to follow lopsided "rules" of engagement that only gets good people killed, drags out the fighting, and garners ridicule from the enemy. 

Let them do their jobs. Maybe then they won't be expected to so often.
