Navy SEAL murder trial witness claims he is the real killer
A witness in the court-martial trial of a decorated US Navy SEAL charged with killing a captive teenage militant while deployed to Iraq confessed on Thursday that it was he -- not the defendant -- who put an end to the boy's life. Corey Scott, a first class petty officer, told the military court in San Diego that while he had seen Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher stab the wounded Islamic State group fighter in the neck in May 2017, he had killed the boy afterwards. Prosecutors on Thursday argued that Scott's version of events was a fabrication and that he was lying to protect Gallagher.
