At Eddie Gallagher War Crimes Trial, a Medic Claims He Was Real Killer

HeadlineJun 21, 2019

In California, the war crimes trial for Navy SEALs Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher took a surprise turn on Thursday when a Navy SEAL medic testified that he—and not Gallagher—was responsible for killing a wounded captive ISIS teenage fighter in Iraq. The medic, Corey Scott, claimed he asphyxiated the teenager after Gallagher stabbed the victim. Scott described it as a “mercy killing.” Gallagher is also charged with attempted murder for shooting at an Iraqi schoolgirl and elderly man.
