    This is just obscene and outrageous.


    Prosecution expert witness admits no evidence of stab wound in Navy SEAL war crimes trial

    Dr. Frank Sheridan, a forensic pathologist, told a Navy prosecutor earlier that the alleged victim's injuries were consistent with a stab wound, but later-- when questioned by Gallagher's attorney-- appeared to cast doubt on his earlier comments.


    "There is no evidence at all that a stabbing occurred,” said Maj. Nelson Candelario, a Marine defense attorney representing Gallagher.

    “That’s true,” Sheridan replied.

    “As far as you can see, there is no blood on his hands?” Candelario asked, displaying a photo of Gallagher at the scene. “As far as I can see,” the pathologist said....

    Its most dramatic moment came last week when a SEAL Team Seven medic-- testifying under an immunity agreement-- told the court that he held his "thumb over his [endotracheal tube]" until the ISIS teen "quit breathing." He earlier claimed that he saw Gallagher stab the boy in his neck.

    Gallagher, 39, served nine months in prison while he awaited trial in the fatal stabbing of the 15-year old ISIS fighter in Iraq. He has also been accused of shooting two civilians in the same year, and opening fire on crowds, all claims he has denied.

    RETIRED ARMY CAPTAIN: THIS TRIAL IS A DISGRACE

    Investigators allege that, while the teen was receiving medical treatment from SEAL medics, Gallagher walked up and stabbed him in his neck and side with a knife, killing him. Then, they say, he posed for photographs with the fighter’s body, holding his head in one hand and his blade in the other....

    In a tense exchange later in the day, Gallagher’s lead defense attorney attacked an agent from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service for “dragging” Gallagher’s children—8 and 18 at the time— to the street during a raid of Gallagher’s home in 2018.

    “They were taken out of the house in their underwear,” charged attorney Timothy Parlatore. “Yes, sir,” said NCIS Special Agent James Frank. The agent cited “standard protocol,” explaining that investigators clear a house before searching it.

    Yeah, right, not letting kids get clothes on before evacuating their own h ome is standard protocol I am so very sure.

    Bullshit.

    This trial is obviously mistaken and should be ended to save legal costs for the accused.

    But that is not how our 'shark' prosecutors work these days. The real costs you can never avoid is the legal bill they inflict on you just by charging you with a crime. So they punish you no matter if you are guilty or innocent.

    You might be on to something if most of the witnesses against him weren't other Navy Seals.

    That's how Robert Mueller does it.
