When his commanding officer crossed the line in Iraq by giving the one order he thought he should not have given, that did it for Maj. Eddy Matthews Graves. He was so pissed off that he sent something incriminating about the war to an editor at the New York Times. Shortly thereafter, he took it on the lam and went AWOL. Days after receiving the sealed envelope, the New York Times wrote a scathing half-page editorial that openly admonished the army and demanded that the commanding officer, Gen. Milton Xavier Fletcher, resign. The editorial did not say what the general had done. Two days after, tired and beaten, the general abruptly resigned, and he also didn’t say why. He kept his lips sealed and left everyone wondering what could’ve happened in Iraq. Right away, the congress, led by the opposing party, smelled a rat and began calling for all sorts of hearings and demanded that the rogue major be found and brought home for questioning. The White House panicked, and rightfully so, they should—it was an election year. The polls were beginning to favor the opposition. If whatever caused the general to resign was damaging, they felt it would definitely tilt the upcoming election in favor of the opposing party if the major was brought home. They couldn’t let that happen—the presidency was at stake. A decision had to be made—fast. So they secretly ordered the major killed. However, they never counted on the resourcefulness and perseverance of those who wanted to see the major brought home-they wanted him alive. They were willing to go to any length to assure his safety even if it meant sacrificing other lives. The question is, will the major survive?
