Soldier Kills Herself After Refusing to Take Part in Torture

Greg Mitchell wrote this article for the Huffington Post and it drew wide attention around the Web perhaps because of its tragic relevance to the current torture debate: The story of Spc. Alyssa Peterson, who committed suicide in September 2003 a few days after refusing to take part in interrogations that likely involved torture.

The piece has drawn more than 200 comments, including one from Alyssa's older brother, supporting the essence of the piece (Greg first wrote about Alyssa almost three years ago).

Please read it here.
