Here's a little reality two so-called reporters need to learn real damn quick.
Very often, someone taking their own life is not in what would be considered a "right mind."
Meaning if a suicide note lacks specifics, you need to be asking why?
Possibly, the Iraq War veteran felt guilt -- as the note indicated -- but that guilt wasn't connected to something specific.
An Iraq War veteran took his own life and left a message behind of how he did things in Iraq that he's not proud of.
That's all it took for Kevin and Greggy to run wild and insist that the man took part in War Crimes.
He may have taken part in nothing at all. He may have just been feeling guilt over the entire war.
Or over something else.
I'm not calling "mentally ill," but I am noting that a suicide note tends to be specific and when it's not you need to ask why that is not run through the marketplace screaming.
In Iraq today, Press TV reports 11 dead from violence.
