Yet Another Pat Tillman Investigation Reveals Even More.

Startling Findings in Tillman Probe

ABC News
Excerpt:
Pat Tillman when he was with the Arizona Cardnials
Pat TillmanNov 9, 2006 (AP)— In a remote and dangerous corner of Afghanistan, under the protective roar of Apache attack helicopters and B-52 bombers, special agents and investigators did their work.
They walked the landscape with surviving witnesses. They found a rock stained with the blood of the victim. They re-enacted the killings here the U.S. Army Rangers swept through the canyon in their Humvee, blasting away; here the doomed man waved his arms, pleading for recognition as a friend, not an enemy.
“Cease fire, friendlies, I am Pat (expletive) Tillman, damn it!” the NFL star shouted, again and again…..

Spc. Steve Elliott, said he was “excited” by the sight of rifles, muzzle flashes and “shapes.” A third, Spc. Stephen Ashpole, said he saw two figures, and just aimed where everyone else was shooting.
Squad leader Sgt. Greg Baker had 20-20 eyesight, but claimed he had “tunnel vision.” Amid the chaos and pumping adrenaline, Baker said he hammered what he thought was the enemy but was actually the allied Afghan fighter next to Tillman who was trying to give the Americans cover: “I zoned in on him because I could see the AK-47. I focused only on him.”
All four failed to identify their targets before firing, a direct violation of the fire discipline techniques drilled into every soldier.
There’s more:…

One investigator told the Tillmans that it hadn’t been ruled out that Tillman was shot by an American sniper or deliberately murdered by his own men though he also gave no indication the evidence pointed that way.
“I will not assume his death was accidental or ‘fog of war,'” said his father, Pat Tillman Sr. “I want to know what happened, and they’ve clouded that so badly we may never know.”

H.L.s Take:
As I have said before this is a story that refused to die, It refuses because Pat Tillman’s parents refuse to accept the constant stonewalling and lying. The media is onto it because of the whole story of Pat, leaving the NFL to go fight. The Tillmans can make as much noise as they have to on this until the truth is revealed. Each investigation reveals more, and there are plenty of people who refuse to talk. This story is the embodiement of everything that went wrong for Bush and his wars.

From the people that brought you the Go Hunting with Dick (and try not to shoot Harry in the face) Game. Pokes fun at the idea that a woman Speaker of the House will rob it of its virility. Now that the shift of power is evident everywhere, what will congress be like now that Nancy is in control.
