This is coolbert:

"Investigators previously have alleged that, while a teen[age] ISIS fighter was receiving medical treatment from SEAL medics, Gallagher walked up and stabbed him in his neck and side with a knife, killing the terrorist. Then, they said, he posed for photographs with the fighter’s body, holding his head in one hand and his blade in the other."

The Perry Mason, Raymond Burr moment.

Navy SEAL on trial for a war crime with surprising testimony.

Thanks to the tip from Levy.

"Medic testifies that he, not Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, was responsible for ISIS fighter's death"

The article by Greg Norman, Dan Gallo | Fox News

"A medic testifying in the trial of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher – who is accused of killing an injured ISIS prisoner of war in Iraq – shocked trial observers when he testified Thursday that he, not Gallagher, was responsible for the Islamic militant's death."

"Special Operator 1st Class Corey Scott, a SEAL Team Seven medic, revealed during cross-examination in the courtroom at Naval Base San Diego that he killed the fighter by asphyxiation. Scott testified that he saw Gallagher stab the fighter, but then he himself held his thumb over a breathing tube that had been inserted into the militant's mouth."

Raymond Burr in the television series "Perry Mason" playing  the role of the clever defense attorney who gain acquittal of his client with the surprising testimony from an unexpected source.

Gallagher his distinguished military and combat record I well might imagine now forever sullied, guilty or not guilty.

P.S. Sticking a knife in wounded captive of itself is a serious charge. The use of lethal force when not warranted.
