Cleared by Trump, Navy SEAL could still be ousted from unit

The Navy SEAL who was accused of war crimes will likely be dismissed from his elite unit on Wednesday — days after President Trump opted to restore his rank. Edward Gallagher was accused of stabbing an unarmed 17-year-old ISIS prisoner to death and randomly shooting Iraqi civilians. He was acquitted of those charges and convicted only of the lesser charge of posing with the ISIS prisoner’s corpse.

war isn't pretty. if our government is gonna send troops into combat they shouldn't have to worry about being sent to prison if they pull the trigger in or near a war zone. otherwise don't send troops into war and just use drones to bomb the sh*t out of their specified targets. it's messier but at least our soldiers won't have to risk going to prison.
