Pat Tillman

The Tillman family had been suspicious of the military’s “friendly fire” explanation of their son’s death from the beginning. It turns out they were correct.

“The doctors — whose names were blacked out — said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.”

That is an execution style murder. Why was he murdered, and even worse, why did the government lie about it? It also makes me wonder about all those other friendly fire incidents-how many of them were also lies?

I’m glad the Tillman family kept pushing for the truth, instead of allowing themselves to be pacified by the original, lying reports.
