The AP has a must-read article on the most recent inquiry into the death of former NFL safety Pat Tillman.

“Cease fire, friendlies, I am Pat (expletive) Tillman, damn it!” the NFL star shouted, again and again.

The latest inquiry into Tillman’s death by friendly fire should end next month; authorities have said they intend to release to the public only a synopsis of their report. But the AP has combed through the results of 2 1/4 years of investigations, reviewed thousands of pages of internal Army documents, interviewed dozens of people familiar with the case and uncovered some startling findings.

A field hospital report says someone tried to jump-start Tillman’s heart with CPR hours after his head had been partly blown off and his corpse wrapped in a poncho; key evidence including Tillman’s body armor and uniform was burned.

This is shocking stuff and I can’t imagine how his parents feel.

    Hey Zoner – SI had an excellent article about this maybe a couple of months ago. Hearing how the whole situation played out is very disheartening.

    I did read that article. It’s disheartening on different levels. The lack of truth given us by the govt heads the list.

    What? The govt giving misinformation? Hard to believe.

    Most disheartening is the death of a soilder at the hands of his brother. There is no way to tell this sad story without getting the emotions flowing. But at the very least, Tillman earned for the truth about his death to be heard.
