Another decade, a sailor, of the USS Cole, and a human, and a murder....
...that will never be called a murder.
"No foul play".
All the things that surround a "Brother in Arm's" death, any aspect of the torture this human being suffered, and even the offical statment
will never tell the truth as to what it really is.
One of the brothers he lived with found him dead in their home last Wednesday, just a week after his 31st birthday, Natala Gokool said. His cause of death was unknown, though she said foul play was not suspected.
Thats foul play in my book, and if ya dont think so, think longer yet not as hard.
How was he murdered? What was used to kill him? Was there a weapon?
Two fold: His being was assaulted with a huge bomb, and the frags were PTSD. They lay dormant so to speak, with the usal flair ups and then one day it killed him.
I, as someone who has seen people live with loss of limbs, or the ability to walk and etc. can say I have heard over and over "I can live with ______, but the ____ is what is killing me."
They can live without an arm, leg, abillity to walk, but the pain, terror, fear, the assault on the emotional and mental aspects makes you wanna just "Grown up style" cry your eyes out. Ask me about my friends and Brothers, my wife............
"Death by PTSD."
Murder, by way of terror, compounded by PTSD.
Am I wrong?
"It don't really hurt 'tll the bone shows".

Rusty----- I agree with you 100%. Seems obvious enough to be the end result of the bombing. Unfortunately, the PTSD has different effects and that masks the root causes of the illness.
May this sailor find the peace that he has missed for the last decade.
