Iraq War Vet Slams Trump For Planning To Pardon War Criminals On Memorial Day

Waitman Wade Beorn, an Iraqi War veteran and historian who teaches the at University of Virginia, told CNN that most veterans he knows are not in favor of pardoning American war criminals, which President Donald Trump reportedly plans to do on Memorial Day:

This is not even a fog-of-war judgement call kind of situation. These are premeditated, cold-blooded murders. It gives everyone a bad name, every veteran that’s served, every American that hasn’t served… it makes us all look bad.
