1. Russia from Michael_Novakhov (116 sites): Voice of America – English: Superior Backs U.S. Navy SEAL Charged with War Crimes

The immediate superior of a Navy SEAL standing trial charged with murdering a helpless Iraqi prisoner and shooting unarmed civilians testified Wednesday he had complete confidence in the defendant’s combat tactics and decision-making.

Master Chief Petty Officer Brian Alazzawi, the first defense witness called to the stand in the trial of Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, also described how one of the main accusers in the case had seemed to harbor a grudge against Gallagher.

Gallagher, a decorated career combat veteran, has denied all charges and says he is wrongly accused. The high-profile court-martial, conducted at U.S. Naval Base San Diego, has drawn the attention of President Donald Trump, who intervened months ago to ease the conditions of Gallagher’s pretrial confinement.

The judge later released Gallagher from custody altogether while the proceedings remained under way. The war crimes case stems from his 2017 deployment in Mosul, Iraq.

The Navy opened its investigation in September 2018, about a year after Gallagher and the platoon he led returned from Iraq.

Gallagher is charged with premeditated murder of a wounded, teenage Islamic State fighter in his custody by stabbing the youth in the neck with a knife. He also is charged with attempted murder in the wounding of two civilians, a school girl and an elderly man, shot from a sniper’s perch.

Medic said he did it

In a stunning setback to the government’s case last week, a Navy SEAL medic testifying for prosecutors asserted it was he, not Gallagher, who caused the Iraqi detainee’s death by blocking the youth’s breathing tube in what he described as a mercy killing.

Prosecutors accused the medic, Special Operator First Class Corey Scott, of changing his story under oath. Sources close to the case said Wednesday the Navy is examining possible grounds under terms of Scott’s immunity agreement that might allow him to be prosecuted for perjury.

The thrust of Gallagher’s defense has been that fellow SEAL team members testifying against him, several under grants of immunity, are disgruntled subordinates fabricating the allegations to force him from the Navy.

Disgruntled comrades

Testimony from Alazzawi, a multiple Bronze Star recipient who served as Gallagher’s supervising chief in Mosul, bolstered that narrative.

He told jurors some SEAL team members had complained about items they suspected Gallagher of taking from a platoon care package, and that one of the group, then-Petty Officer Craig Miller, also complained of poor tactics and unnecessary risks by Gallagher.

Alazzawi, however, said Miller and others among the disaffected troops were “very junior” personnel who were untrained for the daytime sniper operations the unit was engaged in under Gallagher’s direction.

“I’ve had nothing but confidence in Chief Gallagher’s tactics and quality of his decisions,” Alazzawi said.

Miller testified last week for the prosecution that he saw Gallagher inexplicably stab the Islamic State prisoner in the neck at least twice with a custom-made knife as the detainee was being treated for severe injuries.

Alazzawi said Wednesday that Miller did not accuse Gallagher of the stabbing, or of firing on civilians, until after the care package theft was investigated and it became clear no reprimand was coming.

Spotter testifies

Another Navy SEAL called by the defense, Joshua Graffam, disputed the charge that Gallagher shot an unarmed elderly man by the Tigris River.

Graffam said he was acting as Gallagher’s “spotter” in a sniper’s perch when the shooting occurred, and the person he targeted for Gallagher was an Islamic State fighter dressed in black.

“I was confident it was a good shot. I never saw the elderly man in white,” Graffam said. He added, under questioning, that he would feel confident deploying with Gallagher again.

1. US Security from Michael_Novakhov (88 sites): Eurasia Review: Spain: Sánchez Inaugurates High-Speed Train Line Joining Madrid With Antequera And Granada

Spain’s Acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez this week inaugurated the high-speed railway line that joins Madrid with Antequera and Granada, a city, he said, “that has probably waited too long for the arrival of high-speed travel and its return to the railway network”.

Sánchez left from Madrid Puerta de Atocha Station at 9:15 am, accompanied by the Acting Minister for Public Works, José Luis Ábalos, the State Secretary for Infrastructure, Transport and Housing, Pedro Saura, the Chaiperson of Adif, Isabel Pardo, and the Chaiperson of Renfe, Isaías Táboas. The first stop was made at around 11:30 am at Santa Ana station in the town of Antequera (Malaga), where their groups was joined by the President of the Regional Government of Andalusia, Juan Manuel Moreno and the Mayor of Antequera, Manuel Barón. At around 12:30 pm, the train arrived at the high-speed station in Granada, where Pedro Sánchez unveiled a commemorative plaque.

“Today Granada won the battle with time and distance”, claimed Sánchez at the end of the journey. “This is a victory that means more jobs, more tourism and more economic development, not only for the city, but for the whole province”, he added. Pedro Sánchez argued that each euro invested in infrastructure, “directly translates into prosperity and future for society as a whole”, and that, with the arrival of high-speed railway travel, Granada can harness to the maximum its history and its universal heritage.

Safe, sustainable and strategic projects

In his speech, Sánchez stated that a modern infrastructure project must be based on four main pillars: safe travel, mobility as a right and an element of social and territorial cohesion, digitalisation and the incorporation of the latest technological development to ensure smart mobility, and the fight against climate change, in line with the commitments contained in the 2020 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement.

“We must minimize the contribution from transport and mobility to greenhouse gas emissions”, said Pedro Sánchez, who called for responsibility from all public authorities”, because the regressions that some people advocate in this field come with a dramatic cost”.

Sánchez defended the importance of strategic projects, with a direct impact on productivity. The government’s commitment to the Mediterranean and Atlantic Corridors respond to this philosophy, he remarked. The Mediterranean Corridor, he underlined, is a strategic infrastructure for Spain, particularly as regards goods traffic, and “above all, it is a decisive commitment to European integration, to Europe as an economic space for prosperity, but also to projects of co-existence between countries that share history, values and principles”.

Spain, leader in civil engineering

Sánchez praised the contribution from the professionals that have designed and planned the new high-speed line and those who have “physically laid the track and the rails with their own hands”. Thanks to all of them, he stressed, Spain is a leader in civil engineering applied to the development of major infrastructures, as can be seen in the fact that among the 10 leading groups in the ranking of transport infrastructure business undertakings in the world in 2017, five are Spanish.

Sánchez encouraged business owners in Granada to tackle their own future with ambition and optimism. “It is precisely now, when some people invoke conquering the past as their only project, that we need your boost to conquer the future”, he declared.

Shorter journey time and improvements in features and accessibility

As from 26 June, three AVE trains will connect Granada and Madrid in each direction, with a daily offer of 2,000 seats. The journey time will range between three hours and five minutes and three hours and nineteen minutes for the Altaria service between Madrid and Granada, a saving of approximately one hour and twenty minutes.

The arrival of high-speed travel to Granada also translates into trains with more features and services – such as Wi-Fi connections on the whole journey – more seats available and greater reliability. It also means a qualitative leap in terms of accessibility, since these trains have full disabled access and will have a customer care service for people with reduced mobility.

The new connection between Granada and Madrid includes other towns and cities in Andalusia, such as Loja, Puente Genil and Cordoba, as well as Ciudad Real. In addition, Renfe will establish, as from 26 June, a direct connection between Granada and Barcelona with a daily AVE train in each direction, thus offering another 730 seats to the high-speed offer from the city of Granada.

Coinciding with the start of ticket sales, Renfe
has launched a promotional offer to travel between Madrid and Granada
for a price of 35 euros, and 45 euros for journeys that begin or end in
Barcelona.
