I see no good purpose whatsoever being served in writing an article saying the man died in other circumstances. What is the writer's agenda? Whose mind is going to be changed about the war by this kind of article? It's fine to attack the policies and the administration, but I think it was incredibly insensitive and disrespectful for him to write this piece about a dead man.


Tillman's Parents Are Critical Of Army
By Josh White, Washington Post Staff Writer
Mon May 23, 1:00 AM ET

Former NFL player Pat Tillman's family is lashing out against the Army, saying that the military's investigations into Tillman's friendly-fire death in Afghanistan last year were a sham and that Army efforts to cover up the truth have made it harder for them to deal with their loss.

More than a year after their son was shot several times by his fellow Army Rangers on a craggy hillside near the Pakistani border, Tillman's mother and father said in interviews that they believe the military and the government created a heroic tale about how their son died to foster a patriotic response across the country. They say the Army's "lies" about what happened have made them suspicious, and that they are certain they will never get the full story.

"Pat had high ideals about the country; that's why he did what he did," Mary Tillman said in her first lengthy interview since her son's death. "The military let him down. The administration let him down. It was a sign of disrespect. The fact that he was the ultimate team player and he watched his own men kill him is absolutely heartbreaking and tragic. The fact that they lied about it afterward is disgusting."
