“At the request of many, I will be reviewing the case of a ‘U.S. Military hero,’ Major Matt Golsteyn, who is charged with murder,” he tweeted last December.
Mathew Golsteyn is accused of the premeditated murder of an unarmed Afghan man, who was suspected of making bombs. The former Army Green Beret admitted killing the man in 2010, but his supporters claim that man was “a known enemy combatant.”
No one has been more vocal than Golsteyn’s wife, Julie, who has made numerous television appearances, especially on Fox News, to defend her husband. Millions might have heard her, but she was speaking to only one person — and he heard her. It was after one of Julie Golsteyn’s appearances on the right-wing network that its number one fanboy first spoke of reviewing her husband’s case.
