A former U.S. Army Green Beret has been charged with the 2010 murder of a man he suspected of being a Taliban bomb maker.

The charges follow multiple investigations of Major Matthew Golsteyn's role in the man's death that he once admitted to Fox News during a 2016 interview.

"Major Matthew Golsteyn's immediate commander has determined that sufficient evidence exists to warrant the preferral of charges against him," said Lt. Col. Loren Bymer, a spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

"Major Golsteyn has been charged with the murder of an Afghan male during his 2010 deployment to Afghanistan," he continued.

He's charged with "premeditated murder", for cryin' out loud!  Of a Taliban!  In a war zone!

Not the only one ....

... Gallagher, a married father of three, is accused of killing an ISIS fighter in Mosul, Iraq, in 2017, who by all accounts was the sole survivor of a group of about 50 terrorists that were killed by Iraqi and U.S. forces. When found, this fighter had been shot several times and was bleeding badly from a severed artery, and had little chance of survival.

The government’s crime theory is that Gallagher stabbed the terrorist, killing him. However, reports from the Navy Times and numerous other sources have not only cast doubts as to those charges, but reek of an internal mutiny by Gallagher’s subordinates, and an overzealous prosecution that has suppressed exonerating statements, ignored exculpatory evidence, and common sense and logic.

.... An Iraqi Col. Issa Kadhim reportedly saw SEAL medics, lead by Gallagher, attempting to save the terrorist’s life, in hopes of interrogating him, and did not see Gallagher attack the terrorist.

Both men were adamant to NCIS that Gallagher only tried to save the ISIS fighter who died of his injuries and not at the hand of Gallagher, yet this has been completely ignored because it did not fit in the prosecutor’s ‘crime theory.’

The charges and details concerning the government’s allegations just don’t add up.

This is OT, not related to this case, but related to getting u out of hellholes.

The Duran.  They are often critical of the US and the EU in foreign policy. Best foreign news analysis I have found for their regions. Refreshing. Very educated (historically) guys.  Biased toward the idea that countries act in their own interests and often should.

OK, this is VERY long. I had it on today, live chat episode 17.  It is very high quality IMO. There are 4 guys, all Anglos/US(?), two located in Russia, one in Britain, and one in Cyprus I think.  I think this comes in an audio  podcast version.

Mostly international affairs, from Britain to Europe to the Balkans to the Middle East to Russia. Very different from what you hear in the US, often critical of the US foreign policy, if the US even has one.

Around 1:05:00 they talk abour Kosovo and Serbia.
About 1:15:00 to 1:26:00 Syria is discussed in detail. A 'three way Mexican standoff.'  Worth listening.
1:40:00 trade with Russia history after USSR, how it almost ruined the country. Good.
1:46:00 They club Trudeau like a baby seal for kidnapping the Chinese business woman. Brutal.
