    wow, tillman was not what we thought he was. And this is a good thing. So much more of his character and life is revealed in this story, it makes you appreciate the complexity of his beliefs and thoughts. (chomsky, aww, c'mon pat?!) The coverup behind his death is a disgrace.
    And I personally appreciate how his parents have been graceful despite all the BS they've gone through, BS that would break cindy sheehan in a minute.

    Pat Tillman was obviously a great American hero, as are all those brave soldiers who gave everything they had. I don't think that necessarily gives his parents the right to review all the documents regarding his death in a raw uncensored format.

    I respect his parents for the way they are dealing with their son's loss and the unfortunate and inexcusable coverup afterwards, which obviously must be very difficult for them.

    I hope they can find some peace and closure in all of this somehow.

    I`m sure Pat Tillman is turning in his grave.

    What ever happened to showing some respect for the dead?

    Anyone ever hear of the "fog of war"?

    Pat Tillman is a "hero", plain and simple.

    All that`s happening now is a total disgrace.

    It`s the liberal media, that push`s this kind of news, they are the one`s that should be ashamed.

    My heart goes out to Pat Tillman`s family, but they aren`t helping matters. They need to put a period on it, and go on.

    Damn people, we don`t have hero`s anymore, just targets for the media to tear down.

    What a monster, and it devoures all in its sights.

    I fine the whole matter sad beyond words.

    I`d say that covers the subject about as well as it can be covered.

    Truth: Your son gave up a $3.6 million, three year contract to tromp around a desert and get shot by his own side.

    Well, at least your honest.

    We know from which direction your loyalities lie.

    When in doubt, follow the money.
