U.S. Soldier: Suicide Over Torture


"Alyssa Peterson was one of the first female soldiers killed in Iraq. A cover-up, naturally, followed.

Peterson, 27, a Flagstaff, Ariz., native, served with C Company, 311th Military Intelligence BN, 101st Airborne. Peterson was an Arabic-speaking interrogator assigned to the prison at our air base in troubled Tal Afar in northwestern Iraq. According to official records, she died on Sept. 15, 2003, from a "non-hostile weapons discharge.""
Read: She killed herself because she had been sent back to take part in torture. And she couldn't take it. And the military lied about it to hide its shameful behavior.

Prosecute, Mr. Holder, Prosecute!
