5. Will, is this new "news" found by you?
Edited on Tue Nov-29-05 06:44 PM by KoKo01
As the months passed, Westhusings mood darkened. He received reports that USIS contractors and their Iraqi trainees were killing Iraqi civilians, and that USIS was ripping off the US government by deliberately shorting the number of trainees in the fold so as to increase profits. Westhusing the ethicist became despondent, finding no honor whatsoever in his Iraq service.

One day in June, Westhusings body was found in a trailer with a bullet wound to the head. His service pistol was found beside him, along with a note. I cannot support a mission that leads to corruption, human rights abuse and liars. I am sullied," the note read. "I came to serve honorably and feel dishonored. Death before being dishonored any more.


If so, this has the makings of being a fantastic article. :thumbsup:

On Edit: I see you've done your final article. It's one of your best in getting to the "gritty." Just my 2 cents.....
