The Daily Mail – A former decorated US Army commando has been charged with murder for allegedly tracking down and killing a suspected bomb-maker in Afghanistan in 2010 after the man was released from custody.
Army Lt. Col. Loren Bymer said in a statement Friday that Maj. Mathew Golsteyn is charged with killing the Afghan during his 2010 deployment to Afghanistan. Bymer said Golsteyn’s commander determined there was sufficient evidence to charge the former Army Green Beret with the crime.
Golsteyn, who was leading a team of Army Special Forces troops at the time, believed that the bomb-maker, known only as Rasoul, was responsible for an explosion that killed two US Marines – Sgt. Jeremy R. McQueary, 27, and Lance Cpl. Larry M. Johnson, 19.
