Head Navy SEAL goes to war with Trump over "War Pardons" - 11-21-2019, 07:38 AM



When the Head SEAL calls for a "Trident Review Board" for one of Trump's favorite war criminals, it's getting funny.

Even if Trump can "restore" Gallagher's Trident, it seems he's already lost it in the eyes of the SEAL community. What's more important?

What does Trump know about Spec Ops and the threshold for war crimes? His ghost pussy foot and his daddy's large bank account eliminated him from "consideration" for such arduous duty. Hooyah.



An attorney for a Navy SEAL convicted of posing with a dead Islamic State militant contended Wednesday that Navy leaders are trying to remove him from the elite force in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s decision last week to restore his rank.

Rear Adm. Collin Green made his intentions clear at a staff meeting Monday that he wants to remove Special Warfare Operations Chief Edward Gallagher’s Trident pin, which designates him as a SEAL, attorney Timothy Parlatore said. Green is the Naval Special Warfare commander.

“What I’m hearing is that the rear admiral said very disparaging comments about the president and stated his disagreement with the president’s actions and said therefore I want to move forward in removing his Trident,” Parlatore said.

Parlatore filed an inspector general’s complaint Tuesday accusing Green of insubordination for defying Trump. He said Green should be fired and court-martialed.

Trump on Friday restored Gallagher’s rank to chief after it had been reduced following a court-martial this summer in which a military jury convicted him of posing with a dead Islamic State militant in Iraq in 2017.

Gallagher was acquitted of more serious charges, including murder in the fatal stabbing of the militant captive and attempted murder for shooting at civilians.

Green on Wednesday planned to notify Gallagher that he has called for a peer-review process, known as a Trident Review Board, to assess whether his fellow SEALs believe he is still suitable to remain on the elite force, said two U.S. officials familiar with the case but not authorized to speak publicly.

Green also is calling for a peer-review of three SEAL officers who oversaw Gallagher during his deployment to Iraq in 2017 — Lt. Cmdr. Robert Breisch, Lt. Jacob Portier and Lt. Thomas MacNeil, according to the officials.

The officials disputed that the reviews are in retaliation for the president’s actions.

They said that discussions about convening a review board began shortly after Gallagher’s conviction in July. Early drafts of the letters were dated November 1, the officials said.

Gallagher will go before a five-person review board that will include one SEAL officer and four senior enlisted SEALs. The other three officers will go before three-person boards.

The process is expected to last until sometime in January. The review boards’ recommendations will be sent to Green. He will forward those recommendations, along with his own endorsement or disagreement with the decision, to the Navy Personnel Command, which makes the final ruling.

Removing their Trident pins means they will no longer be SEALs but they would still be able to serve in the Navy, though Gallagher and Portier have said they plan to leave the service soon. Still it would be considered a mark on their career that they were cast out of the prestigious warrior force.

The Navy has revoked 154 Trident pins since 2011.

Naval Special Warfare spokeswoman, Capt. Tamara Lawrence, said in a statement that Green “remains focused on delivering a capable, ready, and lethal maritime special operations force in support of national security objectives, which includes assessing the suitability of any member of his force via administrative processes.”

Navy Rear Adm. Charlie Brown, the Navy's Chief of Information, tweeted that as Commander in Chief, "the President has the authority to restore Special Warfare Operator First Class [Eddie] Gallagher to the pay grade of E-7. We acknowledge his order and are implementing it."

Jonathan Hoffman, chief pentagon spokesperson, told CNN's Ryan Browne that the Department of Defense "has confidence in the military justice system. The President is part of the military justice system as the Commander-in-Chief & has the authority to weigh in on matters of this nature."

Admiral Green is the POTUS subbordant, the POTUS has the right to grant pardons. Admiral Green should hope he is not fired by his Boss POTUS TRUMP.

The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!

In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

Is it as accurate as say This thread?


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

Pangit,

Guess Trump showed your ass who the 'Top" of the Chain of Command is.

Too bad you didn't learn that in the Navy.

Trump shut your RADM DOWN.
