Not Guilty. Those are sweetest words someone accused of a crime he never committed could ever hope to hear.
Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher was charged in 2018 for the murder of what the media are calling ‘a militant’. (Also known as ‘enemy combatant’ or ‘jihadi’.)
He maintained it was self-defense.
He finally had his day in court, to which the jury said ‘not guilty’ of the murder charge.
The fact that someone else admitted to having stabbed the victim (while under immunity) would certainly have had something to do with his acquittal.
Since he was charged in September 2018, Andrea, 39, has relentlessly campaigned for her husband’s exoneration for the killing of the 17-year-old militant.
She made multiple television appearances, first on Fox News and later, as the trial gathered speed, on Good Morning America to insist on his innocence and condemn prosecutors’ attempts to put him behind bars.
As well as the two children in the video, the couple have a 19-year-old son together.
The acquittal at a military court on Naval Base San Diego was met with an outpouring of emotion as the military jury also cleared Gallagher of attempted murder in the shootings of two civilians and all other charges except for posing for photos with the body of the dead captive.
The case exposed a generational conflict within the ranks of the elite special forces group and the outcome dealt a major blow to one of the military’s most high-profile war crimes cases.
Outside the court Gallagher greeted the media alongside his wife and lawyers. He spoke briefly saying: ‘I’m happy and I’m thankful.
‘I thank God, my legal team and my wife.’
He later joked he was headed out for ‘tattoos and alcohol’.
If he’s going to enjoy a good drink, make it something high quality…
…maybe something that pairs well with an equally high-quality celebratory cigar.
We even know of one we could suggest:
