BAGHDAD -
US President Donald Trump has pardoned a US officer who killed a wounded Iraqi boy.
The White House said: "Donald Trump signed a decree pardoning the first lieutenant in the military Clint Lawrence and the Army Major Matthew Golstein."
"He also signed a decree concerning the return of Eddie Gallagher, who commanded a platoon of the Navy, to his former rank before his trial, after he was found not guilty in almost all the charges against him."
"For more than 200 years, US presidents have used their power to give second opportunities to individuals they deserve, including military personnel who have served our country. These latest measures are consistent with this long history," the statement said.

Last year, Golestin, an Army Special Forces officer, was charged with killing an Afghan citizen in Afghanistan in 2010.
Gallagher, a platoon commander of the US Navy Special Forces and a medal, was charged with various war crimes while in Iraq in 2017 and has been detained since September 2018. After being told by elements of his unit were under his command and horrified his actions.
Gallagher was accused of killing a wounded boy prisoner while receiving treatment, with knife stabs in the chest and neck.

US President Donald Trump has pardoned two military officers accused of war crimes in Afghanistan and reinstated a platoon commander for the navy in operations in Iraq.
Critics said it would undermine military justice and send a message that atrocities committed on the battlefields would be overlooked.
The White House said in a statement that Trump had granted a full pardon to First Lieutenant Clint Lawrence and Maj. Matthew Golstein and ordered that Edward Gallagher be reinstated before he was convicted during a military trial this year.
"For more than 200 years, presidents have used their authority to offer second opportunities to military personnel who have served our country, who deserve them. These measures are consistent with this long history," the statement said.
A Pentagon spokesman said the department has confidence in the military justice system, adding that "the president is part of the military justice system as the supreme commander and has the authority to assess things like this."
In 2013, prosecutors accused Lawrence of unlawfully ordering the shooting of two men on motorcycles while on patrol in Kandahar province, Afghanistan. Lawrence was convicted of two murders.
Last year, Army Special Forces officer Golstein was charged with the killing of an Afghan in Afghanistan in 2010.
Gallagher, a US Navy Special Forces platoon commander, was charged with various war crimes while in Iraq in 2017.
In July, a military jury acquitted Gallagher was charged with killing an ISIS detainee by stabbing the injured detainee in the neck, but was convicted of illegally photographing himself with the body of the detainee, leading to his demotion.
The ICC has accused US soldiers and CIA agents of committing war crimes in Afghanistan.
ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda spoke for the first time in her 2016 annual report, confirming that members of the US armed forces had “at least 61 detainees tortured and ill-treated and insulted their personal dignity on Afghan soil.”
