WASHINGTON (AP) - An Army Ranger who was with Pat Tillman when the former football star died by friendly fire said Tuesday he was told by a higher-up to conceal that information from Tillman's brother.
``I was ordered not to tell him,'' U.S. Army Spc. Bryan O'Neal told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
These people are the biggest scum on the planet.
The fact is that the Army spun an entire set of lies to hide the truth about Tillman’s death and, on top of that, they made up a story that tried to turn his death into a dramatic, heroic act so they could use him as a poster boy. They saw his death as a PR opportunity.
They hurt his family and called into the question everything they say about every death in this war.
How many mothers and fathers who have lost kids in Iraq now think “If they lied to the family of Pat Tillman, maybe they're lying to me"?
