Soldiers say they were ordered to shred sensitive files

In October, Mark Benjamin of Salon.com questioned the U.S. Army's report attributing the deaths of Pfc. Albert Nelson and Pfc. Robert Suarez to enemy action after finding evidence suggesting that the men died from friendly fire. Now three soldiers say they were ordered to shred boxes of documents containing private information about Nelson and Suarez the day after Salon.com published the first article. The Army denies these allegations.
