    The guy is retired let it be. These people are attacking veterans and war heroes to advance their career's. Our enemies are loving every bit of out going after our own servicemen and women on a daily basis, it's not right. Even if something like this happens it should be kept out of the media is it makes our enemies stronger.

    Given the amount of misleading and obfuscation that has occurred around the Tillman death, how does investigating what happened, and informing the Tillman family of the truth, "help our enemies'?

    will you be willing to look at the evidence?

    Among other information contained in the documents:

    In his last words moments before he was killed, Tillman snapped at a panicky comrade under fire to shut up and stop “sniveling.”

    Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory e-mails for keeping criminal investigators at bay as the Army conducted an internal friendly-fire investigation that resulted in administrative, or non-criminal, punishments.

    The three-star general who kept the truth about Tillman’s death from his family and the public told investigators some 70 times that he had a bad memory and couldn’t recall details of his actions.

    No evidence at all of enemy fire was found at the scene — no one was hit by enemy fire, nor was any government equipment struck.

    The medical examiners' suspicions were outlined in 2,300 pages of testimony released to the AP this week by the Defense Department in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

    Why don't we keep this several year old story to one thread?
