Heroes and Villains
The Pentagon's review of the cover up surrounding the death of Pat Tillman has been released, and indicates that 9 officers will be receiving "corrective" action for their parts in the cover up. The Tillman family sees this as simply a slap on the hands to military brass, who misled the family about the friendly-fire death of their son in Afghanistan in 2004. "Once again," a spokesman for the family stated, "we are being used as props in a Pentagon public relations exercise." The family is calling for a Congressional investigation.
The Bushie Pentagon was all too willing to use Pat Tillman's death as a rallying cry for their war efforts, while all the time knowing that his death was from friendly fire. They took someone who gave up a lucrative career in the NFL to risk his life in combat, and then lied about his death as part of a PR plan. They have no shame and no honor.
