Tomi Lahren: Defending Major Golsteyn -- An American hero is being thrown under the bus

A decorated former Green Beret could face the DEATH PENALTY from his own government after he admitted to killing a suspected Taliban bomb maker almost a decade ago.

Wait, what? Of all the ridiculous things our government does on a daily basis, this just might take the stupid cake.

Hi, I’m Tomi and oh yes I have some Final Thoughts on this one.

Major Matt Golsteyn, a former Army Special Forces officer and American hero is being thrown under the bus by the country he put it all on the line to defend. If this doesn’t tick you off, you’re not paying attention!

He is being prosecuted on one count of premeditated murder after admitting not once, but twice, that he killed a detainee suspected of being a Taliban bomb maker back in 2010.

Call me crazy, but like many of you, I don’t give a rat’s you-know-what that one of our military operators killed a suspected terrorist bomb maker. 

Oh, and the Taliban scum he killed is suspected of planting a bomb that killed two Marines, by the way!

Call me crazy, but like many of you, I don’t give a rat’s you-know-what that one of our military operators killed a suspected terrorist bomb maker.

Now I am no military expert but this sounds like the biggest load of B.S. and betrayal by the United States government I’ve heard in a long while.

So what did Golsteyn do that was so wrong?

In 2010 Golsteyn was deployed to Afghanistan with the 3rd Special Forces Group. Now, just in case this isn’t obvious, he didn’t go to the middle of hell’s sandbox for a vacay, he went to protect and defend his country, freedom, and the men and women deployed right alongside him.

Two Marines in his unit were killed by hidden explosives. Luckily, Golsteyn and his men found the suspect -- he wouldn’t talk.  BUT because he wasn’t on a list of cleared targets, he could have been released.

Well, Golsteyn wasn’t gonna let the man run free and endanger the lives of his men or the Afghans aiding our soldiers. He killed him. He admitted to it, on Fox News, in fact.

And now, years later, he is being charged with murder and could face the death penalty. For what? For killing a terrorist?!

He was already removed from Special Forces and had his Silver Star taken away. Is the Army really going to ruin this man's future for killing a suspected terrorist?!

Thankfully, our president is equally disturbed by this.

Sunday on Twitter, President Trump vowed to look into the matter.

Look, I understand there are rules to war and rules of engagement to be followed but the treatment of Major Golsteyn -- a man who was just trying to protect not only HIS men but Afghan allies, seems so very, very wrong.

Is this how we treat those who lay it all out on the line to protect and defend our freedom? I sure hope not.
