Trump Fires Navy Secretary: A Green Light for More War Crimes?

President Trump last week pardoned Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who had been convicted of war crimes after murdering a Daesh* suspect in cold blood. Gallagher had been turned in by his own men and prosecuted by his superiors. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer opposed the pardon and went public with his opposition to President Trump’s decision to also led Gallagher keep his Navy SEAL pin. Yesterday, Defense Secretary Mark Esper forced the Navy Secretary to resign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I found myself less than comfortable with President Trump's decision, because what does that now do to the entire chain of command?!?

Are senior military officers going to see this as an end-run around their authority, as commanders, by the Commander in Chief?
