Trump to Navy: Take back medalsPresident Donald Trump has ordered Pentagon officials to rescind medals awarded last month to military lawyers who unsuccessfully prosecuted a Navy SEAL for war crimes in the death of an Islamic State prisoner.

Trump, in a series of tweets Wednesday, said the medals were “ridiculously” given to military prosecutors involved in the court-martial against former Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, whose trial ended in acquittal on all but one charge: posing for a photo with the body of the dead Islamic State fighter.

“Not only did they lose the case, they had difficulty with respect [...] to information that may have been obtained from opposing lawyers and for giving immunity in a totally incompetent fashion,” Trump said of the prosecution team.
