Nice guy to pardon

The Guardian reports:

A Seal platoon leader controversially cleared of crimes by Donald Trump was a “toxic” character who was “OK with killing anything that moved”, according to fellow Iraq veterans who reported his conduct to investigators. …

“The guy is freaking evil,” special operator first class Craig Miller, one of the platoon’s most experienced members, told investigators in sometimes tearful testimony. “ think Eddie was proud of it, and that was, like, part of it for him.”

Miller said Gallagher, who had the nickname Blade, went on to stage a bizarre “re-enlistment ceremony” over the body of the captive. “ was listening to it and I was just thinking, like, this is the most disgraceful thing I have ever seen in my life,” he said.

Bear in mind these are the views of other Seals – not known for being precious snowflakes. If they are saying Gallagher was an evil toxic character, that suggests that perhaps one shouldn’t be treating him as a hero.
