Matthew Golsteyn Charged With Murder for Killing Terrorist

Imagine an army so dementedly politically correct that it punishes its own soldiers for oppressing the enemy. That army is our own. Former Green Beret Major Matthew Golsteyn has been charged with murder for saving lives by killing a terrorist bombmaker in Afghanistan:

Golsteyn, in 2010, had been deployed to Afghanistan with the 3rd Special Forces Group. Two Marines in his unit during that time in the Battle of Marja ended up getting killed by booby-trapped explosives hidden in the area.

Golsteyn and his men later found a suspected Taliban bomb maker nearby — though he was not on a list of targets U.S. forces were cleared to kill, Fox News previously has reported. After he was detained, Golsteyn said the man refused to talk to investigators.

Under the rules of engagement, Golsteyn was ordered to release him.

However, Golsteyn was concerned that if he did so, the suspect would have in turn targeted Afghans who were helping U.S. soldiers.

This danger was probably exacerbated when a traitor named Bradley Manning released 750,000 potentially sensitive documents early that same year, some probably containing information on collaborators that eventually reached Taliban terrorists in the field.

The Silver Star Golsteyn earned for combat valor has already been revoked. He could actually be executed by the government he was fighting for.

Fortunately, just as Obama commuted the sentence of Bradley Manning, Trump can pardon Golsteyn.

Even with a pardon, Golsteyn’s persecution must have a devastating effect on morale, which cannot be easy to maintain in a senseless, unwinnable war.

The misadventure in the Graveyard of Empires has dragged on since 2001. The resources wasted in this irredeemable hellhole should be redirected immediately to defending our southern border from invasion.

If American lives were not lost there in vain, we at least learned a lesson. Next time, we will bomb decisively but steer clear of occupation and nation building.
