Navy won’t investigate Eddie Gallagher after SEAL admits to nursing ISIS fighter to death on podcast

The Navy has decided not to investigate retired Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher for saying on a podcast that aired in May that he and other SEALs had “killed” a wounded fighter from the Islamic State terrorist group in 2017, said Navy spokeswoman Cmdr. Courtney Hillson.

“The Navy reviewed the matter and will not pursue further action,” Hillson said on Tuesday. “After a review conducted by the Navy, it was determined that Gallagher’s statements were not corroborated and no substantive information was found to merit an investigation based on those statements.”

In an interview for the finale of “The Line” podcast, Gallagher said that he and his teammates never tried to save the wounded man’s life. “Our intention was to kill him,” Gallagher said on the May 4 podcast episode. “Everybody was on board.”

When asked about Gallagher’s comments at a May 6 Pentagon news conference, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said “the Navy is looking into that issue.”
