  • But that isn't at all what he did.  There was no sympathy for ISIS implicit anywhere in what he said or that article.  He objects to Trump pardoning someone legitimately convicted of a war crime, one that even his fellow soldiers thought warranted turning him in.

    Why lie about what he said?

    Ya, Mr Romney never expressed any sympathy toward ISIS in this interview. He expressed disgust at the "president" for pardoning a criminal who thought he could be the judge, jury, and executioner for someone who never got any kind of a trial. What if it was found that the person was not associated with ISIS?

    Mitt Romney did not sympathise with ISIS; he expressed his devotion to the idea of human rights, and the belief that the president of the US not taking violation of them seriously is not right.

    Not many thoughts to have here. We have laws, and nobody is exempt from them. The president using his powers to protect a criminal from the consequences of the crime, at the very least, would warrant very special circumstances of the crime, and at most, violates the principle of separation of powers.

    Yeah; this doesn't show that Mittens sympathizes with ISIS, it just shows he doesn't care about US troops.  Trump Derangement Syndrome is an irresistible force in many people.

  • CYD, what about his fellow troops that turned him in?  Do you not believe their judgement was sound? Given that they were there and you weren't, it seems you are being disrespectful to multiple soldiers, while Mitt Romney was being "disrespectful" (if you could call it that) to one.

    So Gallagher’s trial ultimately will ask a panel of officers and senior enlisted sailors to weigh the credibility of witnesses — mostly junior SEALs — testifying about what they allegedly saw or heard, and then evaluate their possible motives for expressing their recollections that way.

    Assuming that the witnesses even show up — at least three of them have threatened to assert their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refuse to testify, according to emails provided to Navy Times.

    One of the SEALs is particularly prized by prosecutors because he allegedly was an eyewitness to the murder, but he’s prepared to go to the brig rather than testify in Gallagher’s trial, according to an email provided to Navy Times.

    And others have declined to participate in the ongoing NCIS probe, including a Marine staff sergeant and a pair of Navy explosive ordnance disposal technicians attached to the platoon during the 2017 deployment.

    But piecing together all the interviews in mid-2018 and a round of re-interviews in October of the SEALs reveals multiple, sometimes competing, reasons for bringing Gallagher’s alleged actions to the attention of his superiors and, later, law enforcement.

    Some SEALs wanted to derail Gallagher’s advancement to senior chief.

    Others were angry that he had been recommended for a post-tour combat valor award — the Silver Star — an honor they thought he didn’t deserve.

    Others were concerned that he was tactically incompetent and temperamentally unfit to lead special operators. They wanted him fired from a schoolhouse billet that taught junior SEALs battlefield operations.



    They're not particularly convincing.
