The US Defense Department is planning an investigation into the death of Pat Tillman. Tillman sacrificed a multi million dollar contract to play for the Arizona Cardinals to serve in our armed forces. He was motivated by the tragedy of 9/11. In 2004, word filtered back to the states that Tillman had been killed in Afghanistan. It was sad, but being employed in special forces, it was assumed that he had to perform on some dangerous missions. But soon there was a twist when it was leaked that Tillman was killed by his own men in a mishap. Tillman's family discovered that they were not told the truth and feel betrayed. They think that the Army wanted to use Tillman's death to foster support for the "War On Terror" and the Bush administration.
Hopefully this investigation will shed a light on what happened in this tragedy and let us know the truth about our overseas missions.
