SIX YEARS AGO, an American woman serving in Bahrain single-handedly stopped the United States government from a criminal attack on Iran and a series of “false flag” terror attacks on American troops and ships in the region. American Neocons and the Israel lobby decided this was their last chance to start a war, one that would saddle the next president with a disaster of unprecedented proportions, fighting three wars during America’s Bush-driven economic collapse.

And yet she's lived for several years, quite peacefully, in one of the closest allies of the US. She also told in her own words what happened, and it's a totally different story.
As an example of the policies that concerned Ms. Todd, she described one case in which the Navy asked her to organize a gift drive for the children of the poorest Shiite families. She called it a "Giving Tree."
"I went out with the chaplain and we committed to provide whatever each child asked for," she said in an e-mail. "I received a list of about 400 requests, some for gadgets, many for bicycles and toys, and some for bookcases, tables and desks. I committed to meet the requests on behalf of the Navy."
But she said that she was ordered to cancel the promise by a commanding officer who thought it would upset the leadership. "I could not bring myself to do it," she said. "I worried about the implications for Shia attitudes towards the Navy and feared it could lead to hatred and endanger our people. So I spent over $30,000 of my own money to fund the whole thing myself, in the name of the Navy. Big Brother was not happy, but the Shia never knew the story."
Her account was confirmed by the present government adviser.

Other than "high ranking commander" you mean? She wasn't a commander of anything. She wasn't in the chain of command at all. And they easily could have gotten her, any time they wanted to. There are holes in the story that don't make sense.
