California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter has openly admitted he also “killed probably hundreds of civilians”, and he also said when he was overseas he also had pictures taken of himself with dead bodies.
“I was an artillery officer, and we fired hundreds of rounds into Fallujah, killed probably hundreds of civilians, if not scores, if not hundreds of civilians….Probably killed women and children, if there were any left in the city when we invaded. So do I get judged too?”
This all came about in a recent interview with Barstools Sports’ Zero Blog Thirty podcast, where Hunter explained his support for Navy SEAL special operations Chief Edward Gallagher, who has been accused of War Crimes and being considered for pardon by President Trump.
Gallagher faces a premeditated-murder charge for the death of a teenage ISIS fighter who was brought in for medical treatment, he was stabbed to death. Gallagher allegedly posed for a picture with the teenager’s body. brought in for medical treatment. Gallagher allegedly posed for a picture with the prisoner’s body.
“I frankly don’t care if he was killed, I just don’t care, even if everything that the prosecutors say is true in this case, then, you know, Eddie Gallagher should still be given a break, I think.”
He then went on to say:
“Eddie did one bad thing that I’m guilty of too, taking a picture with a body and saying something stupid and then texting that, he took a picture with the body with his knife out and texted it to some buddies and said, ‘I got this one with my knife.’”
