The circumstances surrounding Pat Tillman’s death keep getting worse. First, the Army spent five weeks trying to cover up the fact that the former NFL player was killed by friendly fire while serving in Afghanistan. Now, a medical report indicates that his death may not have been accidental. Medical examiners said that bullet holes in Tillman’s forehead were so close together that it appeared that he was shot from only 10 yards away. “The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described,” said a doctor who examined Tillman.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is scheduled to hold another hearing Wednesday on Tillman’s death â€” and has invited former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and retired Gen. Richard Myers to testify. It needs to keep pushing for the whole truth.
