Mainstream media sources were curiously, suspiciously silent about the news that Navy Commander Alphonso Mortimer Doss - the man who waterboarded al-Qaeda operative and alleged 9/11 "mastermind" Khalid Sheikh Mohammed upwards of two hundred times, among other tortures - was murdered in a Florida hotel room this past February. For instance, there is no mention of Doss's eminently noteworthy career highlights in this Florida Times-Union report on his murder, which instead focuses on the details of how his estranged wife and two others conspired to murder him for, allegedly, a million dollars in insurance money.

Indeed, one must dig deep to find information about Doss's exploits. For instance, in this Economic Policy Journal article, which reports in part:
In 2006 Doss was ordered by the Deputy Secretary of the Navy to assist in conducting the Annual Review Boards for suspected enemy-combatants held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
There, Doss’ team was charged with interviewing detainees and conducting boards to determine if the detainee in question should be released, transferred to another facility or be recommended for continued detention at Guantanamo Bay.
It was during this tour that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed admitted to Doss’ team that he was one of the masterminds behind 9/11.
The same article, using military and military journalistic sources, details how, earlier in his career, Doss was stationed in the Caribbean and Central America as part of a military operation targeting the narcotics trade, "completing two secret counter-drug missions" while "stationed onboard USS Connolly (1997/1998)".

Because we all know how much the American military just loves to say no to drugs, right?
