I agree with Mr. Tillman

No doubt, lots of folks will be blogging about this one. If my one of my sons were KIA by friendly fire or not, i would want to know the unvarnished truth and those responsible held accountable. The notion that a "cover up" is better than the truth is one of those SNAFU scenarios that has become commonplace with and thereby default, acceptable. Frankly, I have to agree with Mr. Tillman on this matter.


"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."
