Julie Golsteyn, the wife of Green Beret Mathew Golsteyn, says the media should stop spreading lies about her husband, who’s a hero and a good man.

Mathew Golsteyn was charged with killing a Taliban bomb maker outside the US Army’s draconian rules of engagement. Golsteyn could face the death penalty if convicted.

“The characterization of my husband out there is absolutely incongruent with the person he is,” Golsteyn told Fox News. “This is absolutely disgusting how they’re portraying him as a cold-blooded murderer…Who will we have in our ranks if this is what we do to our good men?”

 

Julie Golsteyn also said the media has run with a false narrative about the Afghani bomb maker her husband killed. The bomb maker reportedly murdered two Marines.

“I want to get out there what this ‘alleged bomb maker’ was,” Julie said. “He was not ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected’. He was a known enemy combatant. We need to get the vocabulary [right]. That’s a big problem. He was not a prisoner or detainee…And that has been perpetuated over and over.”

Julie Golsteyn said the US Army prosecutes “good men” like her husband and contrasted it to the kid gloves they used in their treatments of deserter Bowe Bergdahl and leaker Chelsea Manning.

In 2013, Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for espionage for leaking 700,000 classified military documents online. It was the largest leak of classified data in U.S. history. Experts say the extensive leaks endangered American lives around the world.

Manning was set free in 2017 by Barack Obama on his last day in office, when he commuted her sentence.

“This is the Army of Manning and Bergdahl, and if those are the kinds of people that we want in the Army, that’s what we’re gonna end up with,” Julie Golsteyn said. “Who are we going to have in our ranks if this is what we do to our good men?”

Last week, the US Army charged Golsteyn with murder for allegedly shooting Taliban bomb maker during his deployment in Afghanistan in 2010, Task and Purpose reported.

The murder charge comes two years after Golsteyn admitted during a 2016 Fox News interview that he killed the Taliban terrorist because he was afraid the bomb maker would murder the tribal leader who had disclosed his identity to Golsteyn.
