So much fretting about “war crimes.”

California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, defending a Navy SEAL accused of war crimes in Iraq, said his own unit “killed probably hundreds of civilians,” unintentionally, during his 2004 tour as a Marine field artillery officer in Fallujah, Iraq.

In an interview with Barstool Sports’ Zero Blog Thirty podcast, Hunter explained his support of Navy SEAL Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, who has been accused of war crimes and is being considered for pardon by President Trump.

“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,” Hunter said. “Probably killed women and children, if there were any left in the city when we invaded. So do I get judged too?”

Yes, you should – if we did that. We don’t, so don’t worry or ask. The important thing about this (failed) war (and all others) is that the banksters really cleaned up! Also, our heroes saved America from being invaded by millions and millions of inassimilable foreigners. Thank you for your service!
