AP: New Details on Tillman's Death

The Associated Press
Friday, July 27, 2007; 1:48 AM

SAN FRANCISCO -- Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player's death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

"The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described," a doctor who examined Tillman's body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators. The doctors _ whose names were blacked out _ said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.

It goes on to say and this really makes ya wonder, if there is nothing to hide why the cover-ups (not one but two now)...

The medical examiners' suspicions were outlined in 2,300 pages of testimony released to the AP this week by the Defense Department in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Among other information contained in the documents:

_ In his last words moments before he was killed, Tillman snapped at a panicky comrade under fire to shut up and stop "sniveling."

_ Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory e-mails for keeping criminal investigators at bay as the Army conducted an internal friendly-fire investigation that resulted in administrative, or non-criminal, punishments.

_ The three-star general who kept the truth about Tillman's death from his family and the public told investigators some 70 times that he had a bad memory and couldn't recall details of his actions.

_ No evidence at all of enemy fire was found at the scene _ no one was hit by enemy fire, nor was any government equipment struck. MORE!

The emphasis is all mine in that last point they make...That is all anyone should concentrate on...If there was a fire fight with hostile forces, and they fired at Americans from various distances or so it has been told, nothing or no one else was hit but Pat Tillman...Huh?!? Let's not forget he was hit three times in the forehead...He was "triple tapped" if you know anything about guns and terminology from a professional standpoint you will know it is all but impossible with a hand gun...What "tapping" consists of is rapid firing of a handgun and hitting the target with all hits coming in very close proximity...To "double tap" someone is hard enough... After the first shot they are moving, either running from the sound or falling, so to hit them in succession takes some serious speed and precision...Not to mention to the forehead! So the army wants me to believe someone "triple tapped" Tillman from 20 yards away or some bullshit they were saying in the middle of a fire fight...Ducking and dodging for your life, scrambling for cover...Precision shots inches apart, in the forehead,
in a frenzied fire fight!?!? Uhh huh!

Today's Must Read

Was Pat Tillman murdered?

Stunning as it is to contemplate, the Associated Press obtained Pentagon documents through the Freedom of Information Act showing that investigators looked into whether the athlete-turned-soldier might have been deliberately killed in 2004 by members of his Special Forces unit in Afghanistan. Nothing the AP obtained is definitive, and ultimately the friendly-fire ruling withstood a criminal investigation.

But, according to the AP, medical examiners questioned the close proximity of three bullet holes in Tillman's forehead, fired from ten yards away. There are questions -- which will be difficult to hear, considering Tillman's heroism -- that Tillman was not well-liked within his unit. Other elements of the circumstances surrounding Tillman's death appear difficult to reconcile with the friendly-fire ruling -- which came after the Army announced that Tillman died in combat...MORE!

Is it starting to sink in yet?!? No?

From Crooks & Liars (that they are):

(thanks to Heather for vid)

Gen. Wesley Clark talks with Keith Olbermann about Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ response to Sen. Hillary Clinton, the games the Pentagon is playing with Congress’s attempts of oversight, ostensibly on the say-so of the White House and the tragic story unfolding surrounding Pat Tillman’s death.

"Why Nutz?!" "Why would they murder him?!"

This is from Pat Tillman's brother From TheBaltimoreGroup:

Somehow we were sent to invade a nation because it was a direct threat to the American people, or to the world, or harbored terrorists, or was involved in the September 11 attacks, or received weapons-grade uranium from Niger, or had mobile weapons labs, or WMD, or had a need to be liberated, or we needed to establish a democracy, or stop an insurgency, or stop a civil war we created that can’t be called a civil war even though it is. Something like that.

Somehow the more soldiers that die, the more legitimate the illegal invasion becomes.

Somehow American leadership, whose only credit is lying to its people and illegally invading a nation, has been allowed to steal the courage, virtue and honor of its soldiers on the ground.

Somehow a narrative is more important than reality.

Somehow America has become a country that projects everything that it is not and condemns everything that it is.

Somehow the most reasonable, trusted and respected country in the world has become one of the most irrational, belligerent, feared, and distrusted countries in the world.

Somehow being politically informed, diligent, and skeptical has been replaced by apathy through active ignorance.

Somehow the same incompetent, narcissistic, virtueless, vacuous, malicious criminals are still in charge of this country.

Somehow this is tolerated.

Somehow nobody is accountable for this. MORE!

Pat was going to say this and so much more...Were still talking Why here! Pat was the Cons poster boy...Mr all American, with the square cut jaw the football hero, sacrificed a very good contract to serve for his country, the BCS used it as smokescreen a flag waving of sorts to get the people behind the war...I personally thought he was crazy...I would be in training camp right now, thinking, "I can't wait to drive my new McClaren home after this bullshit!" Pat felt the need even after everyone else saw it was a bullshit war...Such is life but while he was over there he had a change of heart and couldn't wait to get home and trash the war...The Cons couldn't have that not they poster boy...Not the "Football Hero" that millions of young kids look up to boys in particular that might want to be just like Pat and fight in the Oil Wars! It is just that simple! If there is nothing to cover up why cover-up?! They have been covering-up since they got in the Whorehouse...Then he was going to go to Noam Chomsky Google him! Learn who's really on the people's side,to give him an exclusive about his disappointment with the war in Afghanistan and the BCS in general...I know a lot of you are still saying why or I can't believe...Well you better wake up! The truth is punching right in the face...If it was the mafia or any other regime, like the Old USSR, or China or north Korea now you would have no problem believing it but it is because it is the President of the USA and he would never allow that to happen to the American public...Well they do it all of the time and you hear about it all of the time some Liberal getting killed in some mysterious death...Think: Ron Brown! You hear about them doing it in other countries why not Amerikkka...WAKE UP!

Let's not forget Abu Al, The President's Man as Jon Stewart put it...He has been caught lying and they have the proof to show it...Yesterday former FBI Director Robert Mueller went before the Senate and testified that "Fredo" was indeed lying about that meeting he had with Ashcroft on his hospital bed...The whole mash up is about whether or not he lied about which program that Acting AG at the time Comey testified he was against reauthorizing...They put the plan into effect anyway and now the Whore house mouthpiece is saying now Mueller is mistaken about what he has NOTES ABOUT! From The Muck:

Snow: Mueller Didn't Mean What He Obviously Meant on TSP

The wages of obscuring a wide-ranging surveillance program are severe, and they force White House spokesmen to enter into absurdity.

Yesterday, FBI Director Robert Mueller testified that former Deputy Attorney General James Comey had legal objections to the "much discussed" NSA program known, as Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) pointed out, as the Terrorist Surveillance Program. Mueller's admission contradicted the sworn testimony of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who has now staked his reputation -- and the results of a possible perjury investigation -- on the proposition that Comey objected to "other intelligence activities." You might say this is a bit of a problem for Gonzales.

Not so, says Tony Snow. During Snow's press briefing today, Snow employed the restricted definition of TSP-post-Comey ("that acknowledged program -- the program that the president disclosed to the American people") in order to say that, as Gonzales testified, "that program was not something that was legally controversial." But didn't Mueller's disclosure refute that argument, by conceding that Comey objected to the TSP? Nah, says Snow, because Mueller said "National Security Agency programs" instead of "TSP"...MORE!

Remember that part about Mueller has notes from the meeting...Yeah apparently Tony snow wants you to forget that part...Now I want to take a little time out right here to talk about Mr Snow...He has got to be feeling like his predecessor "The McClellan 3000 Lying Machine"...It is really getting sad for the rat bastards which means it's getting twice as bad for us...How do you wake up every morning and go try to defend the indefensible day after day? How do you lie day after day feeling no shame or remorse? You are a sociopath and anyone who still believes this bullshit is stupid or a sociopath just like the rest of them...But I digress...Check out the lying bastard for yourself...

I could literally go one for hours breaking this shit down to ya, get you all upset but it means nothing without action behind it...We the people have to demand they do their jobs in DC...There is rally in DC in September...I will post more about it when I get more information, but the time to get into the streets...We cannot let them pawn this off on another subordinate or fellow soldier who was under orders...We have to press until the truth is told...It is fairly obvious what that truth is...That Every F*cking Word They Say Is A F*cking Lie...

I have to re-emphasize the Slave labor bombshell in respects to the hearings on the Iraq embassy...

*Repost from yesterday!* From Crooks & Liars:

Henry Waxman held oversight hearings on the construction of the US Embassy in Iraq. To say that the testimony coming out is explosive and damning to the State Department is putting it mildly.

The Gavel:

The Oversight Committee (held) a hearing, “Allegations of Waste, Fraud, and Abuse at the New U.S. Embassy in Iraq.” The hearing will examine the performance of the State Department and its contractors in the construction of the new $600 million U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The Committee will be reviewing questions regarding the embassy compound construction as well as allegations of labor abuse through improper contracting practices.

John Owens: This was a man-camp, and by nature not the most pleasant of places to be. But the conditions were deplorable even beyond what a working man should tolerate. Foreign workers were packed into trailers tight, with insufficient equipment and basic needs like shoes and gloves. If a construction worker needed a new pair of shoes he was told no, do with what you have by First Kuwaiti managers. The contract for these workers said they had to work twelve hours a day, seven days a week, with some time off on Friday for prayers. A few people from India told me they were making $240 a month...

How much more corruption and scandals and murder and lies and bullshit excuses are we going to take?! Now what needs to happen is to find the person that hired or "gave" the contract to First Kuwaiti and grill his ass, then whoever the contractor (Haliburton or Bechtel) and hold them accountable...This is no longer unbelievable, it just disgusting and to put it mildly outrageous...You can go to to Nancy Pelosi's youtube page and see the best parts of the whole hearing...I remember when the Abramoff scandal broke and James Carvelle was on the Today Show and he said then the depths of the GOP scandals went all the way to the top! Time to cut off the head so the body will die! MORE!

Please do not forget to go and sign the Petiton for the Jena 6...They are trying to bring Jim Crow back to Louisiana, with all white juries , hostile and racist DA's and that cannot be allowed to happen in modern Day America! Demand some media coverage...WHERE THE F*CK IS SHARPTON NOW?!?

Anyway, this is going to be a short version of the Wrap Up...They make my head hurt almost as much as you Sheeple that are willing to stay blissfully ignorant...I am going to try to enjoy my weekend, I hope you do the same in spite of them! Let me know what I missed, got wrong or you need clarification on!

Save Yourself!
