San Diego - The decorated Navy SEAL who was acquitted of murder in the killing of a wounded Islamic State captive in Iraq thanked Fox News, President Donald Trump and two congressmen for their support during his trial.

Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher also told Fox & Friends on Wednesday he feels “blessed to have the support that I had this whole time from the country and from the troops.”

Asked what his message might be to future Navy SEALS, Gallagher said “loyalty is a trait that seems to be lost.”

The same military jurors who acquitted Gallagher Tuesday will now deliberate his punishment for the single charge on which he was convicted: posing with the militant’s corpse.

He’s right that Pres. Trump is so supportive of our service men and women, our military, unlike the dems who have become nothing short of traitors to America, in so many ways, including allowing anti America, anti Semitic Congress people into its party and remaining silent in the face of their horrible talk and actions. And Fox News is the only media outlet which fairly presents both sides, unlike CNN, MSNBC, etc which never ever present the conservative side, only the Trump-hating side. No wonder ratings for Fox trounce all the others combined day after day.

Trumpf should be thanked for supporting this killer of a wounded POW. All of his 'band of brothers' testified that he is a psycho unfit for combat and he killed the prisoner, who did not pose a threat. Killing a wounded POW is a war crime according to US Military Code of Justice. You might as well throw the 613 out the window if you support this criminal.

these POW's were no tzadkim. They were muslim animal terrorists aka ISIS fighters. The type that kidnap girls rape them sell them as slaves and beat them. they type that chops off heads on you tube.

No lost blood on this fake "POW".

And you are a PUTZ! Do not judge this patriot on what you hear in the fake news. Have you ever served in the Military I highly doubt it, have you ever done any service to this country, I doubt it. Well I have, I recall the days following my return from Viet Nam and bing called "baby killer" spat upon & being referred to by other vile names. so please hold your stupidity until you know the facts.

The former police commissioner of the City of New York, (Bernard Kerik) who himself is an ex-convict (having spent three years in federal prison for corruption and income tax evasion, and for lying to authorities), is the only police commissioner in the history of New York City, to be convicted in federal court, and sent to prison. Yet, Fox News kisses his feet, and has him on their channel frequently as a consultant, bowing down to him for his
professional advice", while at the same time promoting his books. Hence, I wasn't that surprised to see Bernard Kerik appear, as a member of Gallagher's defense team. Apparently, the apple (Kerik), doesn't fall far from the tree (Gallagher). They are both birds of a feather. Incidentally, Fox News also kisses the feet of Mark Fuhrman, a convicted perjurer.

If you're calling a TERRORIST a POW, and his alleged killer a war criminal, then its you who are criminally insane.

Funny you should say that when your Democrat buddies in the house keep on calling the disbarred convict John Dean to testify against Trump even though he has nothing to do with Trump.
