No surprises here for those who have closely followed the Tillman story over the past five years.

If you would like to learn more, I believe the single best short introduction to the Tillman story is Gary Smith’s Sports Illustrated's (9-11-06) cover story "Remember My Name"

I've placed a link to that article in my document "Remember the Iconoclast, Not the Icon" at

In his book, “Where Men Win Glory,” Jon Krakauer blamed the Bush administration and the Army for the whitewash of Pat Tillman's death. However, the cover-up has actually been a thoroughly bi-partisan affair.

In particular, the Democratic Congress and the Obama Presidency have protected General Stanley McChrystal from scrutiny and punishment for his central role in the handling of the aftermath of Pat Tillman's friendly-fire death.

If you would like to learn more, I've posted several detailed documents to the blog that focus especially on the actions taken by Congressman Henry Waxman, Senator James Webb (along with Senators Carl Levin and John McCain), the New York Times Pentagon Reporter Thom Shanker, and the Washington think-tank Center for a New American Security (CNAS) Fellow Andrew Exum to protect General Stanley McChrystal from punishment for his role in the cover-up.

And, finally, the binder “Battle for the Truth” discusses the parallels between Pat Tillman and Jonathan (Yoni) Netanyahu who died at the Raid on Entebbe in 1976.
