SEAL sniper: Eddie Gallagher said medics knew to take captured fighters and 'nurse them to death'

An enlisted Navy SEAL sniper testified on Wednesday that Chief Eddie Gallagher told his platoon prior to their deployment that if they ever captured a wounded fighter, their medics knew "what to do to nurse them to death."

In early morning testimony, former Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Dylan Dille told a packed courtroom that he had heard the phrase during unit training before the men of SEAL Team 7 Alpha Platoon deployed to Mosul, Iraq in 2017.

Dille spoke at length about his experiences as a sniper in support of Iraqi security forces during clearing operations, and said he believed Gallagher had shot at innocent civilians on multiple occasions.

"We were made less effective as a mission," Dille said. "Because civilians were being killed by our chief."
