PAT TILLMAN PROBE REVEALS MORE
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.
