IS there anything aelse about the condition of the body? Any autopsies or anything like that? I wonder if it was just a quick shot, or if they made her suffer.
if they made her suffer
Cover up of soldier who committed suicide rather than torture detainees
According to the Army's investigation into her death, obtained by a KNAU reporter through the Freedom of Information Act, Peterson objected to the interrogation techniques used on prisoners. She refused to participate after only two nights working in the unit known as the cage. Army spokespersons for her unit have refused to describe the interrogation techniques Alyssa objected to. They say all records of those techniques have now been destroyed.
Correction to Alyssa Peterson story
KNAU reported in a broadcast Tuesday and Wednesday that Army specialist Alyssa Peterson of Flagstaff may have committed suicide in Iraq three years ago rather than follow what she believed to be illegal orders. In fact, while the army investigation does state she objected to interrogation techniques used on detainees, it does not conclude that those objections were related to her suicide. KNAU apologizes for this error.
Sounds fishy to me....
In article about this woman stated she was a "devout Mormon".
Devout Mormons do not kill themselves. Also, my understanding is the 'suicide note' was not given to her parents.
Perhaps because they would know her handwriting???

What about the assassination of several of the soldiers that rescued Jessica Lynch that never even made it onto the news as far as I know?

Kayla Williams Knew Her
Williams was a fellow interpreter, described how she had been recruited to briefly take part in over-the-line interrogations. Like Peterson, she protested torture techniques of using dogs, nudity, sleep deprivation, and even murder, and was quickly shifted away.
She wrote a book on the 'sexual aspects' of being an interpreter, the annoying Israelis, and the CACI contractors all over you, while the US military cowered to these apes.
She feels Alyssa's death has something to do with the "Cage" interrogation cell.
