    Pat Tillman the former NFL player who left pro football and the money to go and serve his country as one of the elite Army Rangers. Pat was later killed by friendly forces in Afghanistan while carrying out combat operations in 2004. Since his death, the media as well as others have cried foul of the U.S. Army handling of the facts. With the current investigation numbering seven now, the facts have remained the same. Death by friendly fire! No conspiracy! No ordered hit by the President! Not even space aliens!
    Likewise many other great Americans have lost their lives serving their country, some under the same circumstances without the fanfare and media coverage. So why then does Pat Tillman get all the hype? I would like to see the same attention applied to all of the fallen heros and not just the ones who played pro sports. Just my 2 cents.

    The liberals tactics are simple. If they say the same lie over and over and over again, some people will start to believe it, even with absolutely no evidence, motive or reason.

    Call the Tillman Family up and complain to them. They are the ones largely responsible for keeping the pressure on the pentagon, and this issue in the media.

    I seriously doubt USMB posters had anything to do with keeping this story in the national media.

    The problem is that his family was not told how he died from the start. Their right to know how their loved one died was violated. Their right to receive a sense of closure was infringed upon. Those who are crying foul are his family and yet you attempt to make it about the media to sidetrack from the attack you just made upon his family members. You say "enough already" but his family doesn't agree with that and you don't get to play with their lives and mock the death of their loved one as you just did. That you would do so demonstrates how sick you are. It doesn't matter how many others died under similiar circumstances. He is not just another soldier who died. One such death is one to many yet you fail to understand that because you are evil. :wtf: Just my 2 cents!!!

    So now that his family doesn't accept the military's account about why they were not told how their son died you say they are resorting to liberal tactics. It wasn't hard for the military to tell them how their son died but they didn't do so and now they are trying to blame a retired officer for what happened and that simply makes no sense. You routinely talk about how the military has procedures and regulations and then when the family of a dead soldier questions why they were not told you refer to their DESIRE TO KNOW THE TRUTH as LIBERAL TACTICS. This demonstrates for everyon that you are a disgusting piece of low-life shit. This has nothing to do with liberals you sick bastard and I am shocked that you are trying to politicize his death and the subsequent events following his death.

    Quite a few rights you just invented there, Ed. Are those in the BOR? Reminds me of the Right to Privacy you guys fabricated, that is to say, scrawled on a napkin from Panda Express and taped in over the Second Amendment.

    The Tillman family isn't going to let the military mock them or what happened to their loved one and the subsequent cover-up of how he died. They have every right to keep the pressure on the Pentagon and to call on the media for help in finding out the truth and not just the version that the military gives them. Had they not placed pressure on the media and the Pentagon they wouldn't even know what they know now. Why should they believe what the Pentagon and the military is telling them now when the military lied to them and covered up how their loved one died. What reason do they have to trust the military on how they were not told? I suspect that they don't have a good reason and therefore it makes sense that they pursue this until they are satisified with what happened. Until that happens they have every right to pursue this matter. That there are people on this board and around the country who want to make this a political issue instead of an issue of a family trying to find out the truth about how their loved one died and why they were not told doesn't have any bearing on their desire for the truth. I wish them the best of luck in trying to find out what really happened.
