ON COL. WESTHUSING'S DEATH

I've been getting quite a bit of traffic focused on this post about the death of Col. Westhusing in Iraq. I referred to a report I'd heard on CNN. Here's the transcript of what I heard:

Westhusing's death is listed as non-hostile. That category includes accident, illness, foul play, an act of nature, such as being struck by lightning, or suicide.

Military sources confirm to CNN that family members have been told Westhusing was found with a single gunshot wound. But the Army emphasizes it is conducting a full investigation to determine what happened.

WESTHUSING BROTHER: It just breaks your heart, it really does, that there's such, you know, a great person that had so much capability, so much to offer. It's gone. I'd just like for people to know that he gave everything he had to make a difference.

STARR (on camera): No one can yet say what may have happened to the Colonel Ted Westhusing, but friends and family remember a military career served in peace time and war time with years of honor.

Barbara Starr, CNN, the Pentagon.


I've been accused of "adding to the confusion" around the cause of Westhusing's death because I said there was an implication in the report that it could have been suicide. Obviously, if he died of a single gunshot wound it could have been inflicted by someone other than himself. But the way Starr framed her last comment, "friends and family remember a military career served in peace time and war time with years of honor," coming as it did directly after the phrase, "No one can yet say what may have happened..." seemed curious to me, and in the nature of a justification.

By all accounts, Col. Westhusing was an extraordinary person and fine American. I was casting no aspersions upon him by reading something into the reporter's tone and the structure of her report. Col. Westhusing's death was ruled as non-combat-related. That category includes accident, illness, foul play, an act of nature, such as being struck by lightning, or suicide. If he died of a gunshot wound, that eliminates everything in that category except murder or suicide. Either is a sorry end for a gallant and courageous officer.

Ma'am, there was no attempt whatsoever to cast negative aspersions on your accounts. Often new news information adds to the confusion of an already confusing story. Your take seemed to be that he may have committed suicide. Perhaps he may well have. It is certainly a reasonable hypothesis. There is no reason at all to read negative aspersions into my post regarding your post, where none was intended. Try to relax, please.

Thanks for clarifying, Robert. I HAVE gotten several e-mails that read like accusations that I had maligned Col. Westhusing's reputation, about which I was distressed since that was certainly not my intention. So I appreciate your comments.

You say:
"That category includes accident, illness, foul play, an act of nature, such as being struck by lightning, or suicide. If he died of a gunshot wound, that eliminates everything in that category except murder or suicide."
Shouldn't it be "accident, murder or suicide." mam? Not just murder or suicide. It is a training facility. Thousand of rounds are fired morning noon and night there. By literally close to a hundred non previuosly trained- or very little and poorly trained Iraqi's. 70% wash out. Add to the fact that mortars are landing right in the training area at a any given moment. There is an ambulance always at the ready. But the nearest major hospital is in Baghdad. You have to go thru the infamous BIAP road to get there. etc etc etc. Its a war zone bottom line. You can easily die of things you would not normaly die of over here. Example: an armored SUV that looks identical to what we drive over here. If the door of yours over hear slams shut on your hand you get a major bruise. If the one over there cathes your hand it will be snipped clean off. Depending on where you are at- in the "Red Zone" or in the "Green Zone"- in heavey traffic or light. You will bleed to death.
Whatever happened to that man is between him, God , and his family. And I don't undestand why any one not related to him , his family, or his profession would even be commenting. If I am an Architect I don't comment on Brain surgeries. It keeps me from being mis-understood.

Anonymous, one can comment on what ever one wants to, as you have and I and for that matter all of us here have.
It so happens within “your boundaries” I am a relative of Teds and I myself personally appreciate “all comments.”
In all due respects come short of asking his mother or mine directly *mine just got back from the funeral* …at least not asking her yet, as in today…. I myself am trying to find out answers as to what really happened.
I am not so surprised and yet it baffles my intelligent on the lack of information this US administration gives-out or releases concerning anything they do.

Releases is the word …the secrets of this war and the politics are abounding, the truths are mired in FOIA court proceedings and plastered with denial of any wrongdoings whether it is bad information (WMD) or Torture or the numbers deaths and why thousands of Humans are dieing

Was it an accident? There is pure danger as Anonymous mentioned everywhere, yet that wasn’t what I think caused his death.
Motherload you mention”accusations that I had maligned Col. Westhusing's reputation” seeking the truth is admirable and we all can only sort through what we believe are true facts and come to a hypothesis as Robert clarified. In all the press I have been searching, it is here in these blogs that I think the truth is closest to honest answer that I am searching for. Thank you all.

In a letter my mother sent to me over a month ago, regarding Ted it mentioned that he was frustrated with all the distrust and the lying and killing by the contractors and also by the Iraqi police amongst each other and in the Police cases they were suppose to be protecting people, he felt it was insolvable. He had asked for prayers, saying they were “really needed now” the letter mentions that he was fed up with the Army and was getting out?
I read this and then put more facts together …one bullet, non combat, closed casket, no info from military to the public and it seems like the worst may of happened.

I too am hypothesizing and looking to understand what happened to my cousin while in Iraq. I haven’t seen him in 3o years and now it’s too late. From some of his own writings, and others about him, he seemed like a compassionate man.
I wonder if the ugliness of this war is a message in his passing away that the world can take heed to.

The very reasons Ted may have taken his life might be the words we need to listen to when great men scream for help in the battlefields of Wars with no Logic

When I have more info I will pass it along
Peace

Ted Didn't kill himself. He wouldn't volunteer to go over there for six months and then five weeks short of coming home throw his life away. He wasn't depressed, someone had to be threatening him. I know that much is true.

My final piece on Ted Westhusing is here. And it wasn't an easy story to write either. And no, you don't have to read it if you don't want to. This story is going to go on and on for a while, and there will be more bickering back and forth about a man who is, frankly, dead. I'm pretty much checking out for now. I may post some more about his LIFE, which, hopefully, at some point, people can celebrate and be inspired by.

Kind of like those posters in Cuba that show a dashing, romatic Che Guevara, with the message "Be Like Che!" And no, it doesn't mean pick up a machine gun a fight guerrilla war. Che Guevara and Ted Westhusing were 2 great romantic heroes of our times. I'm sure most who know Ted are conservatives who are appalled at my comparing Che with Ted. But I'm pretty sure that Ted would understand and nod his head. A great warrior is a great warrior, ideologies be damned. May they meet somewhere later on shake hands, warrior to warrior, if only...

I never thought this story would get to me but it actually is...

How many times have authorities worldwide used "suicide" as a coverup for government-sponsored murder or as a pretext to close a case they didn't want investigated? I have to say that when I first heard an allusion to Westhusing's death that I thought was a sly innuendo of possible suicide, I thought "uh-oh -- is this another coverup?"

Col. Westhusing sounds like one of the really good guys, and his family deserves to know exactly what happened to him.

Ted taught, among other subjects, "morality and war" at West Point. It's a second year philosophy class required of all cadets. He was an expert in the law and philosophy of war. He was also a devout Catholic. To my mind it's highly unlikely that he would take his own life given his religious ideas (and the sin of dispair). I just don't buy it. Ted would, however, have objected vociferously to actions he believed would have been against the unwritten and written law of war, against Jus in Bello, or put another way, against the Just War Tradition. Add to that the fact that it was all too easy to discover what he was doing in Iraq via the internet.

I knew Ted just a little but I heard wonderful things about him through my wife who knew him very well and it really angers me and makes me sad that anyone would think he'd committ suicide. Not only would he have been home on July 5th but he had a loving wife and three children waiting on him as well as his parents, siblings and friends. Why would he kill himself because he was disillusioned with the military, and the corruption of Iraqi police when he could have gone home, retired with honor, lived a wonderful life with his family, and more than likely would have made a fortune as highly educated and experieced as he was. Ted was a thinker and there's no way in hell he'd do what's being suggested. He had too much to live for, he wouldn't hurt himself or the people he loved most in life over military issues or corruption within Iraq. Five of his six months completed and you want us to believe he ended his life over corruption and disillusionment. I don't know who killed him, but it wasn't Ted and you don't need to create a sucide theory of an outstanding person just to further your anti war feelings. If you want to fight the war, go for it, but don't try to tarnish Ted by making it look like this highly,highly educated man, moral man,family man,and high ranking officer would end his life less than a month before he'd be home. Do you want us to say to ourselves "see, even people like Ted got disillusioned, maybe we shouldn't be over there." You're trying to further your anti war agenda but you're really just hurting the people that love him, and the memory of Ted. You people love to create doubt with a negative spin. I haven't seen Ted in nearly 25 years, he was a nice guy with a great smile, and as good as gold.

My opinion wasn’t meant to tarnish Ted it was meant in an open honest truthful discussion of how his death happened. Mentioning facts I knew were not mentioned to cause malice or disrespect, or hurt the people that love him. That is not my intention at all.
If anything the comment is to bring attention to “what” is the truth? How did this happen? Should we skip the ugly parts? Skip over the parts we don’t want to talk about or address?
If suicide did happen, IF …I say….. then would the reasons “why” become more relevant?
I think very much so. What would get a person such as Ted to do such a thing? I based my opinion on real facts “tied to real information” that the press had released in numerous cases in the media and over the Internet.

I had my best friend commit suicide 10 years ago, and he was a great family-guy, happy, fun, energetic loving and caring, and he had a heart and a smile of gold too….and he also carried some troubles that broke his heart and worries that he didn’t dare share -with all us- which caused him to make a fatal hard to believe decision. Now we all, who loved him, live daily, his memories and his loss.

I love Ted. I want to honor him. And it is in my love for him that I want to hear his cry.
With all the facts as they be it certainly is curious as why there isn’t an obvious answer?
I really want to know why and this damn war should carry its share of the blame if in his cry this crap in Iraq caused his heart so much pain. I want to know.

That is not wrong for me to want to know why. I mean him no harm. I want the truth like you most likely do. I’m wondering if we will, get it? How did this happen? Who or why?
I do not say that to serve my agenda, even though I hate this frickin war as I do
But ironic as it may be that may be exactly why my cousin is not here now.

Here is an article that was in the NY Times 6-28-05 it resonates a common theme, in my opinion, concerning what really could of happened and if so why.

The Not-So-Long Gray Line
By LUCIAN K. TRUSCOTT IV
Los Angeles
JUNE is the month in which West Point celebrates the commissioning of its graduating class and prepares to accept a new group of candidates eager to embrace the arduous strictures of the world's most prestigious military academy. But it can also be a cruel month, because West Pointers five years removed from graduation have fulfilled their obligations and can resign.
My class, that of 1969, set a record with more than 50 percent resigning within a few years of completing the service commitment. (My father's class, 1945, the one that "missed" World War II, was considered to be the previous record-holder, with about 25 percent resigning before they reached the 20 years of service entitling them to full retirement benefits.)
And now, from what I've heard from friends still in the military and during the two years I spent reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan, it seems we may be on the verge of a similar exodus of officers. The annual resignation rate of Army lieutenants and captains rose to 9 percent last year, the highest since before the Sept. 11 attacks. And in May, The Los Angeles Times reported on "an undercurrent of discontent within the Army's young officer corps that the Pentagon's statistics do not yet capture."
I'm not surprised. In 1975, I received a foundation grant to write reports on why such a large percentage of my class had resigned. This money would have been better spent studying the emerging appeal of Scientology, because a single word answered the question: Vietnam.
Yet my classmates were disillusioned with more than being sent to fight an unpopular war. When we became cadets, we were taught that the academy's honor code was what separated West Point from a mere college. This was a little hard to believe at first, because the code seemed so simple; you pledged that you would not lie, cheat or steal, and that you would not tolerate those who did. We were taught that in combat, lies could kill.
But the honor code was not just a way to fight a better war. In the Army, soldiers are given few rights, grave responsibilities, and lots and lots of power. The honor code serves as the Bill of Rights of the Army, protecting soldiers from betraying one another and the rest of us from their terrifying power to destroy. It is all that stands between an army and tyranny.
However, the honor code broke down before our eyes as staff and faculty jobs at West Point began filling with officers returning from Vietnam. Some had covered their uniforms with bogus medals and made their careers with lies - inflating body counts, ignoring drug abuse, turning a blind eye to racial discrimination, and worst of all, telling everyone above them in the chain of command that we were winning a war they knew we were losing. The lies became embedded in the curriculum of the academy, and finally in its moral DNA.
By the time we were seniors, honor court verdicts could be fixed, and there was organized cheating in some units. A few years later, nearly an entire West Point class was implicated in cheating on an engineering exam; the breakdown was complete.
The mistake the Army made then is the same mistake it is making now: how can you educate a group of handpicked students at one of the best universities in the world and then treat them as if they are too stupid to know when they have been told a lie?
I've seen the results firsthand. I have met many lieutenants who have served in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq, practically back to back. While everyone in a combat zone is risking his or her life, these junior officers are the ones leading foot patrols and convoys several times a day. Recruiting enough privates for the endless combat rotations is a problem the Army may gamble its way out of with enough money and a struggling economy. But nothing can compensate for losing the combat-hardened junior officers.
In the fall of 2003 I was embedded with the 101st Airborne Division in northern Iraq, and its West Point lieutenants were among the most gung-ho soldiers I have ever encountered, yet most were already talking about getting out of the Army. I talked late into one night with a muscular first lieutenant with a shaved head and a no-nonsense manner who had stacks of Foreign Affairs, The New Yorker and The Atlantic under his bunk. He had served in Bosnia and Afghanistan, and he was disgusted with what he had seen in Iraq by December 2003.
"I feel like politicians have created a difficult situation for us," he told me. "I know I'm going to be coming back here about a year from now. I want to get married. I want to have a life. But I feel like if I get out when my commitment is up, who's going to be coming here in my place? I feel this obligation to see it through, but everybody over here knows we're just targets. Sooner or later, your luck's going to run out."
At the time, he was commanding three vehicle convoys a day down a treacherous road to pick up hot food for his troops from the civilian contractors who never left their company's "dining facility" about five miles away. He walked daily patrols through the old city of Mosul, a hotbed of insurgent activity that erupted in violence after the 101st left it last year. The Army will need this lieutenant 20 years from now when he could be a colonel, or 30 years from now when he could have four stars on his collar. But I doubt he will be in uniform long enough to make captain.
One cold night a week later, I sat on a stack of sandbags 50 feet from the Syrian border with another West Point lieutenant; he, too, was planning to leave the Army. "I love going out on the border and chasing down the bad guys," he told me as he dragged on a cigarette. "We've got a guy making runs across the border from Syria in a white Toyota pickup who we've been trying to catch for two months; we call him the jackrabbit.
"He gets away from us every time, and I really admire the guy. But when we catch him, there'll be somebody else right behind him. What's the use? Guys are dying, for what?"
A couple of weeks ago, I got an e-mail message from another West Point lieutenant; he was writing from a laptop in a bunker somewhere in Iraq. "I'm getting out as soon as I can," he wrote. "Everyone I know plans on getting out, with a few exceptions. What have you got to look forward to? If you come back from a tour of getting the job done in war, it's to a battalion commander who cares more about the shine on your boots and how your trucks are parked in the motor pool than about the fitness of your unit for war."
There was a time when the Army did not have a problem retaining young leaders - men like Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, George Marshall, Omar Bradley and my grandfather, Lucian K. Truscott Jr. Having endured the horrors of World War I trenches, these men did not run headlong out of the Army in the 1920's and 30's when nobody wanted to think of the military, much less pay for it. They had made a pact with each other and with their country, and all sides were going to keep it.
When members of the West Point class of 1969 and other young officers resigned nearly en masse in the mid-1970's because of Vietnam, Washington had a fix. Way too late, and with no enthusiasm, the politicians pulled out of Vietnam, ended the draft and instituted the "all volunteer" military, offering large increases in pay and benefits. Now, however, the Pentagon has run out of fixes; the only choices appear to be going back to the draft or scaling back our military ambitions.
The problem the Army created in Vietnam has never really been solved. If you keep faith with soldiers and tell them the truth even when it threatens their beliefs, you run the risk of losing them. But if you peddle cleverly manipulated talking points to people who trust you not to lie, you won't merely lose them, you'll break their hearts.

My name is neither Howard nor Roark, but I am a 1997 graduate of USMA. I had COL Westhusing as a professor of mine in my yearling year, when he was just a newly minted Major. It was a philosophy and logic course. I had him as a professor for about 6 months and got to know him pretty well during this time. We kept in touch the rest of the year as well before he went to Korea.

Let me say this: HIS DEATH WAS NOT A SUICIDE. I knew this man. He was passionate, intense, extremely intelligent (double major in Russian and Physics), extremely athletic (devout road biker), honorable (Captain of the West Point Honor Court), and principled. There is NO way he would do this.

Here's what I think happened. COL Westhusing "knew" something or "discovered" something about the way things were being done or he had negative info on somebody. And I believe he was going to report that someone to either the press or to superiors. I think he was murdered in an effort to "keep him quiet."

After serving 6 years in the Army (none in combat), I am not surprised at all that they would attempt to use suicide as a cover-up. His death is not even on the U.S. Military Academy's AOG web page.

If you really want to serve a purpose and make a true journalistic difference. Why not spend some time invetigating this instead of just arm chair blogging. It will be nearly four months since Colonel Ted's death and the immediate family doesn't know anything more than the he died, which they found out two days after his death. I understand the family has been interviewed seprately by numerous army and government intelligence agencies, all family members, separately, but given no information, despite numrous requests. I understand some US congreeman are taking interest as well. Think the army/gov are trying to cover all their bases first? You think there just might be a bigger story here???????

COL. WESTHUSING'S DEATH:
Having just read of this young mans passing yesterday December 5th in the NY Times, and reading of his request for duty in Iraq / Afghanistan so he could be a better informed teacher. . . ( I BALK at being a 'conspirator theorist,' but in light of President Bush's oligarchical style and revelations of criminal activity in Iraq as well as at home) I would want a non military inquire into this good and decent military mans unnatural death. Particularly in light of his strong sense on HONOR and INTEGRITY which is contrary to the installed leadership style of management at home and in theater. A simple parafin test on the Col's hand might be a very good first step!

January 14, 2006 -- Serious questions remain concerning Col. Westhusing's "suicide" in Iraq. Army's chief ethics expert was murdered, according to Carlyle Group insider.
According an informed source within The Carlyle Group business consortium, Col. Ted Westhusing, the Army's top military ethicist and professor at West Point, did not commit suicide in a Baghdad trailer in June 2005 as was widely reported in the mainstream media five months later. At the time of his death, Westhusing was investigating contract violations and human rights abuses by US Investigations Services (USIS), formerly a federal agency, the Office of Federal Investigations (OFI), which operated under the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
In 1996, OFI, which conducted background investigations for civil service personnel, was privatized. The 700 government employees of OFI became employee-owners as part of USIS. In January 2003, the New York investment firm Welsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe, described by a Carlyle insider as a virtual shadow operation for The Carlyle Group, bought USIS for $545 million. With 5000 current and former employees of USIS sharing $500 million, the deal made them wealthy with the stroke of a pen. However, upper management within USIS became much wealthier than the rank-and-file. Insiders report that the twelve top managers at USIS became multimillionaires as a result of their cashing in of their Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs). Many of these instant millionaires already had a close relationship with The Carlyle Group.
Carlyle had been a shareholder in USIS since 1999 and with the buy-out deal via the Welsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe deal, Carlyle became the major shareholder.
USIS continues to have a virtual exclusivity deal to perform background security investigations for OPM. The company bills itself as "one of the largest Intelligence and Security Services companies in North America.”
With the Iraq invasion, USIS obtained lucrative Pentagon private security contracts in Iraq. At a 2004 job fair in Falls Church, Virginia, USIS was advertising for "interrogators" and "protection specialists" for "overseas assignments." While he was in Iraq training Iraqi police and overseeing the USIS contract to train police as part of the Pentagon's Civilian Police Assistance Training Team, Westhusing received an anonymous letter that reported USIS's Private Services Division (PSD) was engaged in fraudulent activities in Iraq, including over-billing the government. In addition, the letter reported that USIS security personnel had murdered innocent Iraqis. After demanding answers from USIS, Westhusing reported the problems up the chain of command. After an "investigation," the Army found no evidence of wrongdoing by USIS.
That decision signed Col. Westhusing's death sentence. USIS and Carlyle have powerful allies in the administration, including Defense S

"This is Ted's oldest brother. There is no intention here to advertise this book as a motive for profit, only for truth and justice for Ted and what he stood for, fought for. We, as a family, donot profit from it, but it is a book that will bring more information to light on Ted's inexplicable and tragic death and open many more questions and issues that will hopefully stimulate more interest in why he died and why it should be further investigated. And your interest, as US citizens, in seeing justice done. The title is "Blood Money" and it is a book by by LA Times Special Investigator T. Christian Miller (who wrote in the LA Times, front page, on Ted's death previously) and should be a summer blockbluster by the information it reveals. You can already find some general reviews on book websites but it won't be released until Aug 29th. Thanks.

God bless you Ted, I am so very proud of you and all you stood for. Its ironic, I am you older brother, but I always wanted to be like you, live so much like you.....I looked up to you and your values. You will never, ever be forgotten. What you stood for and what happended to you will be revealed....by all the good, caring people of this country you stood up for and care for you.......

Dear Ted Westhusing:

I have read Blood Money with great interest. Don Sudnick is now working in Houston with a security group formed by Gregory Howard Walker.

Walker was the "private investigator" who was recommended to me by the daughter of Bronislaw Mogenis to investigate the "suicide" of my son on December 10, 2000 after he had been on a Halliburton/Dresser yacht in Clear Lake, Texas in Galveston County. Julie Mogenis nearly died of a gunshot received in Utopia, TX. An ex-FBI agent, her father was head of security in Houston for Lockheed Martin.

Within the Texas incorporation documents is a USIS Inc. having been started in League City, TX. as early as 1990. Other USIS Inc. registrations show Don B. Mauro as agent...relative of Garry Mauro, a wellknown Texas politician.

The President of West Point, General William Lennox owns a homesite in Port Aransas, TX. on street with a member of the Brown family...ie., Brown and Root...Brown Brothers Harriman?

The whole area where Lennox now lives has been the focus of development by the Army Corp of Engineers. The ACE is an elite group of West Points top grads with...as we learned in New Orleans....trememdous power to change the destiny of whole regions.

All roads lead through Texas. Col. Westhusing was in Texas studing within the Classics Department of UT. That would have put him within another elite element...UT's Classics Department was started by the grandfather of THE railroad attorney for Baker & Botts...firm of Secretary of State and key member of the Iraq Study Group, James A Baker.

All roads lead though Texas when it comes to oil and power and those roads started with the railroads which were always dependent upon the Army Corp of Engineers. The Union Pacific Musuem is being housed at the Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M, College Station, where Mr. Gates was president. The connections are longstanding and organic. The Walker's also go back to Samuel Hamilton Walker, creator with Sam Colt of the Walker Colt Pistol, 1000 of which were ordered for Texas in the early 1800's from US Treasurer, Walker.

There is no room for anything but soldiers WITHOUT conscience in the US Military today...and a soldier with a heart for the ethical treatment of people would have been a security risk for the heart of darkness the military has become. He would have been like Kevin Costner's character in Dances With Wolves, but I SERIOUSLY doubt that he killed himself. I would that we nationalized the US military as we did the steel industry during WWII.

History is being rewritten by these people and it's nowhere near the truth. Consider that Mrs. Beschloss of the Carlyle Group is married to Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss, that the Chester Nimitz library in Fredericksberg, TX. is now a monument to the wartime history of George Herbert Walker Bush and that NOBODY is asking "Who was William Garner "Ted" White of Yale...what was his position on intervention against Germany and Japan prior to Pearl Harbor vs. the position of the other Yale elites whose families were making money off the extened conflict...and what was he doing in the back seat of GHWB's airplane the day he died?
