Pat Tillman Death To Be Investigated

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. Posted by Picasa

I don't think we will ever no the truth.

Pat Tillman was one of those rare players that you'd root for even when he was playing against your team. He gave the cougars fits as well as all the other teams in the pac 10 completely dominating games as a 190lb linebacker fighting off the blocks of 300lb pound offensive linemen and seemingly getting in on every play. When tillman hit the ball carier they stayed hit.
