- Maj. Matthew Golsteyn has been charged with a war crime following a 2016 interview on Fox News, where he admitted to killing a suspected Taliban bomb maker in 2010.
- In 2011, Golsteyn told the CIA that he killed the Afghan man, who was believed to be unarmed after being released from custody. In another interview, Golsteyn said military rules required him to release the suspect.
- Golsteyn’s attorney says the charges are based on an inaccurate portrayal of Golsteyn’s statement to the CIA.
- On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted his support of Golsteyn, lauding him as a hero — which may ultimately sink the Army’s case.
President Donald Trump announced an unprecedented review of a former Army Green Beret, who had been charged with murder for the 2010 killing of a suspected Taliban bomb-maker.
“He could face the death penalty from our own government after he admitted to killing a terrorist bomb maker while overseas,” the president said in a tweet Sunday.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
