EPISODE 114 – THE TRUTH ABOUT NAVY SEALS – WE CAN’T HANDLE IT

The men of Alpha platoon Seal Team 7 called their chief a psycho, evil, a man capable of grisly crimes haunting even to veteran soldiers. Nursing prisoners to death, posing with deceased prisoners, this is tough stuff. And for the most part, the world of this elite fighting force was top secret, heroes working in the shadows. A new podcast THE LINE from APPLE TV covers the trial of a SEAL accused of war crimes, and in doing so cracks open questions not only about the military, but about branding, social media and how our country is divided. This is easy listening, a podcast about podcasts. We play clips, we kibbitz.  Teresa Strasser and Gina Grad welcome you to the show!

Apple TV+ is launching a dual podcast-TV series that should catch the eye of just about anyone paying attention to military news in recent years.

“The Line” is being touted as an “independently reported” endeavor to expose “previously untold aspects” of the story of controversial former Special Warfare Operator Chief Eddie Gallagher, who faced charges in 2018 for alleged war crimes in Iraq, including the murder of an Islamic State detainee.

Gallagher was acquitted on all charges except one: posing for a photo next to the corpse of a 17-year-old militant. The jury’s recommended sentence of reducing Gallagher’s rank to E-6 was nullified after then-President Donald Trump intervened in the case, paving the way for Gallagher to retire as a chief. Subsequent discussions to strip Gallagher of his SEAL trident were also quashed.

The Line is hosted by Dan Taberski of “Running from COPS” and “Missing Richard Simmons” fame.  Find Dan on Twitter @dtaberski
