Breaking News from CNN

I just received the following email from CNN

"A criminal probe is being opened into the death of former NFL star Pat Tillman, who was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan."

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. Defense Department inspector general has directed the Army to open a criminal investigation into the death of former NFL star Pat Tillman

I'll add more when I can find out more information

There was an indication at the time that Pat wanted to speak out against the war and that resulted in "friendly" fire. Man, this is big news!

Yes, it could be. But I just read the NYT article and Tillman's father is quoted as saying, with some digust, "What good is the Pentagon investigating its own botched investigation going to do?" We'll see. You remember how they used him as a campaign tool, don't you, not telling anyone he was killed by his own men so Bush could use him as a war hero?

Doubt anything will come of it. I think that this is a smokescreen to keep the family quiet.

Read about this in NYTimes today. I don't blame his Dad for distrusting the investigation. They got it wrong three times...
