Duty, Honor, Profit by D. Richard Tucker

 

On June 5th, 2005, Colonel Ted Westhusing became the highest ranking 
officer to die in the Iraq war.
  The Army’s investigation attributed his
death to suicide, but a large amount of evidence pointed towards conspiracy
and murder.

to even more disturbing conclusions.  This is a true story.
