If anyone deserves a presidential pardon in this Christmas season, it’s Army Maj. Mathew Golsteyn, a heroic former Special Forces officer who risked his life for our country in Afghanistan.
Golsteyn is the victim of a grave injustice – now unbelievably facing a murder charge for the death of a Taliban bombmaker who built a bomb that killed two U.S. Marines.
President Trump should follow his instincts and give this brave officer a pardon now for a charge he never should have faced.
hat was Golsteyn’s “crime?” He prevented the bombmaker from killing more American service members and more of our Afghan allies. Would we be better off if the bombmaker were still on the loose, as we buried more Americans he was responsible for killing?
Golsteyn deserves the thanks of a grateful nation – not a murder charge.
