Using a 2-inch stack of documents obtained over 15 months under FOIA, The Texas Observer told the story of the suicide of Col. Ted Westhusing, who at the time of his death -- June 5, 2005 -- was the highest-ranking American soldier to die in Iraq. The documents the Observer obtained from the Department of Defense include transcripts of interviews with the colonel's co-workers and family members, and redacted reports from the Army's Criminal Investigation Command and the Inspector General.
