    ... ex american football player, turned american soldier.

    ended up getting shot dead (his head was shot off) by his own platoon.

    his final words were "i'm pat fucking tillman, why you shooting at me", poor cunt.

    he spoke out publicly against the illegal invasion of afghanistan and had an interview planned with chomsky.

    the american government, all the way up to bush, covered this "friendly fire" incident up for years, until now.

    i thought it happened when bush jr sent them in after 9/11 and it was reported fairly quickly

    cuz i remember this story from like 10yrs ago and i was sure it had just happened as i watched the coverage of it

    it happened back then, in 2004 i think it was, but they covered it up for three odd years.

    they thought his family'd buy into the "heroic" story the army and bush told the american public, they didn't.

    you're right though, this happened a while ago, i just made this thread because i saw his documentary last night.

    did they ever look into why they shot at him, or why friendly fire is so common?

    it really doesn't make sense, do they just take out their anger on their fellow soldiers? that sounds really shitty.

    naw its mostly the confusion of war. I can see how it happens, and wonder how it doesnt happen more often

    they are definately mistakes and are investigated, its not good PR for them when it happens. If anyone was negligent they do punish them.

    his superiors sent his group into mountains on what he knew was essentially a suicide mission for no reason other than to have a hero made out of a dead pat tillman...then it backfired.

    that's like asking knowledge to stop acting like a female online, it won't happen.

    urgh, that fucking place reeks of desperation and lack of intellect.

    fucking stupid bimbo cunts.
