Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher to plead not guilty to murder of ISIS teen

SITUATION

Edward Gallagher was a decorated Navy SEAL is currently facing charges of premeditated murder and numerous other offenses in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenage Islamic State prisoner under his care in Iraq in 2017, along with the shooting of unarmed Iraqi civilians.

Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher plans to plead not guilty to all the charges at Naval Base San Diego. According to military prosecutors while serving in Mosul, Iraq, in 2017, he snapped. Prosecutors say the Navy SEAL fired indiscriminately into Iraqi crowds. They say he shot an elderly man carting a water jug in Mosul, as well as a girl walking along a riverbank there, the AP reported. They also say Gallagher stabbed an injured teenage Islamic State prisoner to death while another U.S. medic was working to save his life.

This is a unique case and it stands out primarily because of the seriousness of the allegations against an elite special warfare operator and the fact that the prosecution’s case includes the accounts of fellow Navy SEALs, an extremely tight-knit group even by military standards. Gallagher’s lawyer claims that his client is being falsely accused by disgruntled SEALs who wanted to get rid of the demanding platoon leader.

 

CHALLENGE

To serve a nation on the front lines and to be a Navy SEAL is a truly patriotic action that brave men and women do. It deserves to be respected and service families in any nation deserve the utmost respect for the great personal sacrifices they make. Working in extremely stressful condition can sometimes alter behavior and affects brain health in military personnel. There is a general perception that unlawful command influence abounds in the military currently. Over the last ten years, allegations of serious criminal conduct have swirled around the Navy’s SEAL Teams — especially around DEVGRU (The United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG), commonly known as DEVGRU) — which is a function of the kinds of operations they are so often involved in.  Cases related to Navy SEALs face an additional challenge due to the classified nature of part of the work to be accomplished by them. Working in minimal oversight and in remote locations within the command only — outsiders can’t even question is an obstacle for investigation agencies to arrive at the truth in a specific situation.

What is the truth in the case of former decorated Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher’s case? Is he really an out of control SEAL as accused or is he being falsely accused by disgruntled SEALs who wanted to get rid of a demanding platoon leader?

 

WHY ICOGNATIVE?

Elite US investigations agencies such as Naval Criminal Investigation Service can take utilize the benefits afforded by technological advancements in the field of neuroscience that push the boundaries to help delivery of truth in the case of Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher. iCognative offered only by Brainwave Science is unique technology, it is a real breakthrough in science as no other one currently exists that determines through reliable, objective and scientific means, with over 99% accuracy, whether a person has specific knowledge stored in the brain. iCognative system matches information stored in the memory bank of the suspect with information from the crime scene, aiding law enforcement officials in distinguishing between an innocent suspect and a perpetrator. With its remarkable ability to quickly and accurately identify missing links, iCognative effectively leverages intelligence collection to an unprecedented level.

In the current case of Chief Gallagher, iCognative test can be conducted on any of the suspects, victims as well as witnesses as it is non-invasive and respects human rights and privacy rights. A simple and easy to use iCognative system is loaded with all case related information in form of words, phrases or pictures related to the case. Details in the current case may include items and information such as: picture sent by Chief Gallagher after death of a teen in Iraq next to dead body; time of death; type of knife used for killing; testimonies of other civilians who saw the accused shooting at innocent Iraqi people; time and place of killing of an elderly Iraqi citizen Gallagher is accused of having killed, etc., along with other classified information not released to the public (called Stimuli) can be flashed for testee to observe during a iCognative test protocol. Within 45 minutes automated test is completed and the system delivers only two definitive results with over 99% accuracy regarding whether the specific information that the investigators are looking for is present or absent in the brain of the suspect. In addition, iCognative has been proven to play a pivotal role in establishment of innocence of a falsely accused person. iCognative just brings out what is the truth and paves the path for justice.

iCognative technology has detected the P300 and P300 MERMER and the concealed knowledge it reveals with near-100% accuracy. It is a powerful solution to help justify cause for further investigation on leads where evidence is unavailable. This unique security solution is best positioned to corroborate evidence that will either go concealed by perpetrators, using advanced neurological responses that cannot be manipulated or suppressed. The use of iCognative by Brainwave Science in this case will provide accurate and reliable information setting the fundament for a new strategy and approach that can bring real results.
