Gallagher also forfeits more than $2600 a month for two months.SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A Navy Seal acquitted in San Diego of murder and other charges stemming from various alleged war crimes will appear in court again Wednesday morning to fight for his rank after posing with a corpse, the one charge for which he was convicted.Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher was acquitted of six of the seven charges he was facing, including fatally stabbing a wounded teenage ISIS fighter and shooting Iraqi civilians.After eight hours of deliberation, a jury of five Marines and two Navy men convicted Gallagher Tuesday solely of posing with the teen’s body in a photograph. While the verdict means Gallagher will walk away a free man, the charge could result in a penalty affecting Gallagher’s rank, which would in turn affect his salary and pension. The penalty will be discussed in court Wednesday.The charge for which he was convicted also carries a maximum sentence of four months behind bars, which he has already served.Gallagher, 40, could have faced up to life in prison if convicted of murdering the teen in May 2017, as well as shooting a male and female civilian and shooting at an unknown number of other civilians later that year in Mosul, Iraq.The highly decorated veteran was acquitted of charges including murder, attempted murder, willful discharge of a firearm and obstruction of justice. The jury began weighing Gallagher’s fate Monday afternoon, following a full day of closing arguments at the Naval Base in San Diego.Prosecutor Jeff Pietrzyk said in his closing argument that despite a lack of physical evidence, text messages and pictures Gallagher took with the teen’s body are direct evidence of his guilt.“Good story behind this one. Got him with my hunting knife,” read one of the text messages Gallagher allegedly sent to a colleague. “I got a cool story for you when I get back. I got my knife skills on.”Prosecutors alleged that once Gallagher received word of the prisoner, who was injured in an air strike, Gallagher said, “No one touch him. He’s mine.”As Gallagher and others tended to the teen, he allegedly pulled out a hunting knife and stabbed the boy multiple times, prosecutors argued. He was also accused of shooting two civilians, whose bodies were never recovered, just over a month later and opening fire on a crowd of other civilians from a sniper’s nest.Gallagher’s defense team claimed the allegations were lies coming from a group of disgruntled subordinates who felt their platoon commander was too tough on them.His attorney, Timothy Parlatore, said the SEALs who reported Gallagher were lying, and he contended the government was relying entirely on their word in the face of a complete absence of physical evidence that any of the charged events ever occurred.

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull) “No body, no forensics, no science, no evidence, no case,” Parlatore said during his closing arguments.The attorney emphasized that in addition to no bodies being recovered, no blood was ever seen on Gallagher or the hunting knife, despite photographs taken shortly after the stabbing allegedly happened. Without a body, a forensic expert testifying as an expert witness was unable to determine the teen’s cause of death based solely on video footage of the boy’s injuries.In surprise testimony during the trial, First Class Petty Officer Corey Scott, testified that he suffocated the wounded ISIS fighter after Gallagher stabbed the teen in the neck. Scott said he held down the boy’s breathing tube because he did not want him to suffer or be tortured by Iraqis.But Navy prosecutors said Gallagher’s text messages, particularly the wording of “Got him with my hunting knife,” was evidence of his admission to the murder.“The government’s evidence in this case comes from Chief Gallagher’s words, Chief Gallagher’s actions and Chief Gallagher’s SEALs,” Pietrzyk said.Parlatore argued that several SEALs posed with the ISIS fighter’s body and likened the text messages to “dark humor” that in no way proved Gallagher killed the teen.Prosecutors alleged that Gallagher threatened fellow SEALs over the allegations, and posted their names in private Navy social media groups in order to out them as traitors and sabotage their chances at career advancement.But Gallagher’s attorneys argued he was simply trying to clear his name amid the volatile claims made against him, and that divulging the names of the men spreading malicious rumors was a means of warning fellow SEALs who might serve with those men in the future.The trial was dogged by allegations of prosecutorial misconduct, with the trial judge finding that Navy prosecutors used tracking software to spy on the defense team’s email accounts.The judge, Capt. Aaron Rugh, removed Cmdr. Chris Czaplak from the case just before the trial was set to begin, ruling the prosecution sent emails to the defense and a Navy Times reporter that were embedded with code that would track the recipients’ email activity.The judge also ordered that Gallagher be released from custody due to violations of his Fourth and Sixth Amendment rights and reduced the maximum possible sentence of life without parole to life with the possibility of parole.Gallagher — a 19-year Navy veteran — received public support from President Donald Trump, who commented in a social media post earlier this year that Gallagher should be moved to less restrictive confinement. Trump also hinted at pardoning him if he was convicted.

Preliminary results of Breakthrough Listen project released

first_img Explore further The Breakthrough Listen project was publicly announced in 2015, and has been backed by Stephen Hawking and perhaps more importantly by Yuri Milner, a Russian billionaire who, along with other backers, has put $100 million toward the 10-year project. Over the past two years, the Parkes Telescope in Australia, the Green Bank Telescope in the U.S. and the Automated Planet Finder optical telescope at Lick Observatory also in the U.S. have been dedicated to listening to radio signals emanating from space in the hope that one or more of them might be generated by alien life forms. Several petabytes of data have been collected after pointing the telescopes at 692 stars—each gets three five-minute observations, which are interspersed with observations of other targets. Thus far, the team has designated 1709 stars for study. The team has also broken down the stars to be studied into two categories: those within 16 light years of the sun, and those belonging to a sample spread across a main sequence and some branch stars which are no more than 163 light years away.Project members made headlines last year when they noticed irregular dimming by Tabby’s Star—subsequent study suggested that rather than indicating signs of extraterrestrial life, the dimming was most likely caused by comet fragments interrupting signals.The team reports that to date, project members have identified 11 signals as worthy of a closer look, but at this time, do not believe any of the signals represent alien communications. They also note that the process of sifting the data is rather simple and straightforward—first, distinguish artificial signals from natural signals by looking at irregular behavior such as modulation or pulsing patterns. The next step involves making sure any such irregularities are not generated here on Earth. The software is open source so that anyone who wishes to participate in the search can do so. © 2017 Phys.org Journal information: Astrophysical Journal Breakthrough Listen to search for intelligent life around weird star This document is subject to copyright.
