Tillman cover-up still on-going

The U.S. Army’s cover up of Pat Tillman’s death is still being spun. Last week word leaked that within hours of his death, the Army went into information-lockdown mode, cutting off phone and Internet connections at a base in Afghanistan, posting guards on a wounded platoon mate, and ordering a sergeant to burn Tillman's uniform. It is well-known by now that the circumstances of Tillman's April 22, 2004, death were kept from his family and the U.S. public; the Army maintained he was cut down by enemy bullets in an ambush, even though many soldiers knew he was mistakenly killed by his own comrades. The investigation is still on-going.

This story's got more legs than a Patrick Ewing table dance. I have no clue why someone thought it was a good idea to send Tillman anyway. If they wanted results they should have formed an elite squadron featuring Cincinnati Bengals players. Those dudes know how to handle a gat and better still Goodell may consider it a success if some of them came home in a coffin.
