In an upcoming hearing, attorneys on both sides will be able to present new evidence involving the case against Maj. Mathew Golsteyn, who was charged in 2018 with murder of an alleged Taliban bomb maker during a 2010 Afghanistan deployment.  There was a board of inquiry that took place following the deployment in which members did find that Golsteyn may have committed acts that would qualify as “conduct unbecoming” an officer but they only recommended he be discharged.  Around 2011, during an interview process with the CIA, he admitted to killing a Taliban bomb maker. Army investigators later opened an investigation and claimed that CIA interviewers told them Golsteyn had admitted to shooting the unarmed bomb maker and that he and two other soldiers retrieved the body and destroyed it.

Golsteyn pleaded not guilty to charges in June. His court-martial is scheduled for Dec. 2.
