A Death in Afghanistan

This made the top page on Digg today: Soldier Once Warned Family: Investigate if I Die. Basically, a finance officer in Afghanistan found something she shouldn't have and ended up with a bullet in the head. This has special relevance to me: my mom was a finance officer in the Canadian reserve infantry.

What did she find? Who knows? Whatever it was, it was bad, and she paid the price because she said something. Foolish, that. She shouldn't have said shit on base. She should have published it on the 'net. She'd still have gotten murdered, but at least she would have gotten the word out.
