Edward Gallagher -- a Navy SEAL platoon leader charged with committing war crimes in Iraq -- was acquitted of murder, Tuesday.

Gallagher was charged with murdering a wounded Islamic State prisoner in his custody -- AND shooting unarmed civilians -- during a 2017 deployment in Iraq.

But in San Diego on Tuesday, a military jury cleared Gallagher on all counts except for unlawfully posing with the corpse of the ISIS fighter – THAT carries a maximum sentence of four months imprisonment.

Navy authorities said Gallagher has credit for nearly seven months of time already served in pre-trial custody, and now would presumably remain a free man.

Gallagher’s case had caught the attention of President Trump, who has said he is considering pardons for a number of military personnel accused of war crimes.
